The Healing Power of Music
The Power of Music is Helping to Heal
Musical Angels, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to uplift and improve the quality of life of hospitalized children by actively engaging them in the process of making music with their own hands and hearts. Musical Angels provides free, weekly piano lessons to children ages six and above while they are at the hospital. Music is a powerful, non-invasive medium that assists in reducing fear and anxiety.
How We are Changing Lives.
“My child looks forward to her piano lesson every week and she has gotten pretty good at it! She keeps the keyboard in her room and now she has something positive and creative to do during the day. Thank you Dr. Tolosa!”
“We are excited to have Musical Angels in our hospital next month. We have heard wonderful things about this amazing program!”
“Dr. Tolosa brings a lot of joy to our patients! They are excited to work with him and beam with pride as they demonstrate the new music skills they have learned.”
“I have always wanted to learn to play the piano but my parents could not afford it. Now I can learn while I am at the hospital and I don’t event mind being at the hospital!”
“It is truly amazing and touching to see the big smiles and sense of pride these young patients show when it is time for their weekly piano lesson at the hospital. They have something beautiful to do and to look forward to from day to day. “
“My little girl, four years old, is waiting for a heart transplant. She loves her piano lessons every week and she plays the little keyboard every day!”
