Seven words can sum up the work of Heartstrings United: Music is the Medicine of the mind.  My vision is both simple and grand. But it is anything but easy. The mission of Heartstrings United is the implementation of sustainable early childhood music programs across the globe that serve children with backgrounds of abuse and trauma. 

My passion for children, my training as a music therapist, and evidenced based research on music in the brain are the foundation from which this program will grow and flourish. In my mind’s eye, I can already see children around the globe making music in a stunning cacophony of sound and voice. On the surface, this vision gives the impression of a carefree, joyful child. But, I know that the work of the music in this child’s inner world is even greater than what they are demonstrating on the outside. 

But I need your help. Sustainability and training are the keys to this program. Caregivers must be taught and provided with all the necessary tools to keep these programs consistent, evidence based and engaging. 

The money raised goes towards those ends: travel costs for in person training, instruments for the children, audio recordings of the music as well as access to videos of the activities on the Heartstrings United website. If you love a child, I know this work will pull on your heartstrings. So, please consider supporting this work through your generous donation.
