Songs For Kids gives kids battling serious illness opportunities to be creative and express themselves through music. We’ve brought music into hospitals all over the US and run regular programs in children's hospitals in 5 states. Songs for Kids musicians perform in-hospital mini concerts for whole floors of patients and make individual bedside visits for kids who don’t have the chance to leave their rooms. We're not there to just play a couple of songs, provide a distraction, and leave; our goal is to form the kinds of meaningful relationships that it takes to help kids deal with their illnesses through creativity.
In addition to hospital performances, we provide opportunities for songwriting and recording to give kids a chance to put their experiences into words and feel a sense of accomplishment. Our one-on-one music mentorship program is available to kids battling illness both in and out of the hospital. Kids in the mentor program work with their own Songs For Kids musician on a dedicated music project. Whether that means songwriting, singing lessons, or learning an instrument, we can't wait to see and showcase the awesome work they do together.
Songs For Kids: we're honored to rock with the kids who need us most.
