Music Heals’ mission is to support a wide range of music therapy services to communities across Canada by providing ongoing funding for those agencies that develop and use music therapy.
Music therapy is the skillful use of music and musical elements by an accredited music therapist to promote, maintain, and restore mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Music has nonverbal, creative, structural, and emotional qualities. These are used in the therapeutic relationship to facilitate contact, interaction, self-awareness, learning, self-expression, communication, and personal development. — Canadian Association for Music Therapy.
Current Music Heals programs include: The “Bandwagon” which is the world’s first mobile recording studio, designed specifically to assist Music Therapists working with patients at their bedside; and the iPod Pharmacy.
