The Music Therapy program provides a wonderful opportunity for individuals who enjoy sharing their musical talents through instrumental music, by creating a calming atmosphere for hospital visitors, patients and staff. Volunteers are welcome to play our grand piano in the lobby or take their own smaller instruments, wind or string, up to patient rooms and nursing floors.
The Music Therapy program provides instrumental music to patients during room to room visits as part of addressing the whole health of the individual. The goal of this program is to lift the emotional spirits of the patient, improve morale, increase energy levels, and provide stress relief through music as a diversion technique. By voluteers providing music at the bedside of patients, it also has the potential to ease the patient's feelings of loneliness.
