why we exist
Everyone deserves access to music, regardless of income or health status. This is particularly important for people with or at risk of physical or mental illness, because music improves our physical, mental, and social health.

We are not only inspired by music’s ability to heal but also, by the power of a story, and the generosity of people.
Many people in the global community do not have access to music, or the benefits of listening to one’s favorite music. This includes millions of people afflicted with physical or mental illness. Music brings healing power to those who listen.
Music permeates our daily experiences and gives our lives greater meaning. It breathes life into radio, television, film, electronic games, community gatherings and much more. Basically, music breathes life into our being.
Music has been around since human existence, from prehistoric bone flutes and ancient tribal drums, through development of new technologies, to modern times.
