About us

The children love it when they hear their name mentioned and then the musician plays their favourite song. The sessions are so therapeutic, making us all happy and lifting the atmosphere.

Music in Hospitals & Care is a charity that improves the health and wellbeing of children and adults through the healing power of live music.

Every year, our professional musicians share live music with over 100,000 people from across the UK, who may not otherwise get to experience it. This includes those living with dementia, who have mental health problems, or who are seriously ill.

Our specially-created live music experiences unlock all kinds of emotions – from joy to loss, pleasure to nostalgia. They improve people’s mental, physical and emotional health. And they help people feel more connected to each other.

Only with your support will we help more people benefit from the healing power of live music. Please give today.
