Why We Exist

Everyone deserves access to music, regardless of income or health status. This is particularly important for people with or at risk of physical or mental illness, because music improves our physical, mental, and social health. Scientific research shows that it can significantly reduce stress and anxiety, decrease pain, elevate mood, boost immune functions, aid memory, speeds recovery, and more.

Who We Are

Music Has Healing Power (MHHP) is a new verified California nonprofit foundation IRS EIN # 81-1539684 www.MusicHasHealingPower.org, and the brainchild of Southern California-based Cinema Show Music (CSM), a multi Grammy-winning music and sound production company operating since 1977 www.cinemashowmusic.com

Our mission is to make music accessible to all and to provide a better life through music, instruments, education, compassion & love.

What We Do

MHHP accepts tax deductible donations of money, instruments and musical talents then distributes these gifts of music to needed recipients. Recipients can be patients, family, friends, or a group in a gathered situation like hospitals, hospice or other community facilities. We will reach people afflicted with illness, disease, disability, as well as, those involved in a natural catastrophe.

Since each person's favorite genre of music is best for her/his listening pleasure and healing journey, we use our extensive resources at Cinema Show Music www.cinemashowmusic.com to customize the music as requested. For example, Pop, Rock, Dance, R&B, Hip-Hop, Country, Classical, Jazz, Gospel, World/New Age, and more.

How You Can Help

As a music lover and humanitarian, you can help by donating any amount of money &/or new or used musical instruments to help us spread the incredible healing power of music to those in need! In addition, donations could include your personal music talents being provided to individual recipients. Contact us to get involved at info@musichashealingpower.org.

Tell Us Your Story

As a patient, friend, family member, or health care professional who knows someone or a group of people who would benefit from the healing power of music, we will have a dedicated page on our web site for you to tell us your story and to request our music foundation services for an individual(s) in need.

Our Inspiration

We are not only inspired by music's ability to heal but also, by the power of a story, and the generosity of people.

Many people in the global community do not have access to music, or the benefits of listening to one's favorite music. This includes millions of people afflicted with physical or mental illness. Music brings healing power to those who listen.

Music permeates our daily experiences and gives our lives greater meaning. It breathes life into radio, television, film, electronic games, community gatherings and much more. Basically, music breathes life into our being.

Music has been around since human existence, from prehistoric bone flutes and ancient tribal drums, through development of new technologies, to modern times.

Music and its rhythmic motions can be as simple as tapping one's foot to a sound or humming a tune that brings back memories. Music affects all of us in some way. It has been scientifically established that music does indeed have healing power.

The Impact

We, at Music Has Healing Power believe that all patients, families and caregivers should have access to and benefit from the healing power of music. Whether live or pre-recorded music, It has been demonstrated that music has a direct effect on people and can help:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Manage stress
  • Alleviate Pain and Improve Pain Tolerance
  • Access and express feelings
  • Enhance memory and access positive memories
  • Improve mindset/emotional outlook
  • Promote physical rehabilitation
  • Reduce length of hospital stay

Favorite Quotes

Mitchell Gaynor, M.D.

You can look at disease as a form of disharmony. And there's no organ system in the body that's not affected by sound and music and vibration. --Mitchell Gaynor, M.D., Author of Sounds of Healing
Music can animate people with Parkinson's disease who cannot otherwise move, give words to stroke patients who cannot otherwise speak, and calm and organize people whose memories are ravaged by Alzheimer's or amnesia. In the senile, music can help recall lost memories; in the speech-impaired, it can bring back words, the neurologist writes. Immobile patients may get up and dance or sing. --Author of Musicophiliam, Tales of Music and the Brain (2007)

Oliver Sacks

Edgar Cayce

The human body is made up of electronic vibrations, with each atom and element of the body, each organ and organism, having its electronic unit of vibration necessary for the sustenance of, and equilibrium in, that particular organism. Each unit, then, being a cell or a unit of life in itself has the capacity of reproducing itself by the first law as is known of reproduction-division. When a force in any organ or element of the body becomes deficient in its ability to reproduce that equilibrium necessary for the sustenance of physical existence and its reproduction becomes deficient in electronic energy. This may come by injury or by disease, received by external forces. It may come from internal forces through lack of eliminations produced in the system or by other agencies to meet its requirements in the body. --There Is A River by Thomas Sugrue (1928)
