What is

Music4Health?

We are a community of mental health professionals, educators, musicians, athletes and concerned citizens collaborating to develop and implement scalable, trauma-informed coping skill programs for K-12 students.

We are part of the collective community working to improve health outcomes and reduce the financial strain on our nations’ social systems for current and future generations.

What does Music4Health do?

Music4Health provides classes led by health coaches who are board certified therapists and mental health professionals. Our classes engage students in musical experiences to accomplish non-musical goals.

Using bells, drums or other easily accessible percussion instruments, we use experiential musical activities as a springboard to self-awareness and consciousness about the world around us with the intention of building healthy coping skills for life.

Enroll today to set the children in your life up for success and well-being.

Why is music used in our programs?

Music has a unique ability to transcend the limits of spoken language and provides a deeper outlet for self-expression, self-discovery and understanding, crossing all barriers of race, nationality and culture. Through our experiential programs we engage individuals using music to activate the parts of their brain which control emotion, memory and learning.

What is a trauma-informed system?

A trauma-informed system understands trauma is universal and doesn't just happen to a select group of people. Traumatic things happen to all people and impacts all aspects of how we relate to each other and organizations. A trauma-informed approach recognizes, understands, and responds with the five guiding principles of safety, choice, collaboration, trustworthiness, and empowerment.

What is
mindfulness?

Mindfulness is the cultivation of awareness without judgment or striving and with acceptance and a genuine interest in experience combined with a process of linking the learning to an understanding of our perceived vulnerability.

How do we measure outcomes?

We measure intrinsic outcomes using self-reported belief scales and we partner with our client organizations to define and measure extrinsic outcomes. Our Music4Health App allows program participants to communicate with their Health Coach between sessions, supports our program measurements and allows Health Coaches to refer participants to other professionals as needed.
