Matthew Rachamkin
Director/Business Development

I’ve spent the bulk of my career as a senior sales leader for the world’s leading sales and marketing research firm, SiriusDecisions (acquired by FORR in Jan., 2019). …

Over 12+ years, I had the opportunity to work with and learn from innovators like Apple, Google and Microsoft and help open offices in SF, London and Singapore. Post acquisition, I dove headfirst into film, EP’ing Sylvie’s Love which premiered at Sundance 2020 and sold to Amazon.  My production company Three Mighty Lions currently has multiple features and pilots in development. My passion for storytelling is a direct extension to the generations before me. My grandparents were Holocaust survivors, narrowly escaping Hitler on their way to Shanghai, China.  The knowledge of my family’s struggles and the keen awareness of the best and worst humanity has to offer, is one of the many reasons I’m so proud to be a part of MHHP.  The goal is so pure, to bring a little love and joy in the form of music to those who need it most.  Honored to contribute any way I can.

Robert Ochsendorf
Director/Creative & Marketing
I was raised in a musical environment and started my first band at a very young age. In the early seventies, I was asked to play guitar for country songwriter, Chuck Howard. This led to extensive traveling, (cont…)
  …with considerable time being spent in Nashville, playing with many of the greats in country music. While I was playing in LA, I received a call from my father, who informed me of his failing health. He suggested I come back to Columbus, Ohio and take over E.R. Ochsendorf Co., the family advertising and marketing business, which I did.

Ochsendorf Promotions enjoyed substantial growth and peaked with thirty employees. Although the primary business for over fifty years has been corporate branding, we are also known for custom products, product development, jingles, importing and exporting.

Hectic as it was, I found time to play music with some of my longtime musician friends. Our band, The Hipnotics “Fabulous Entertainers” stayed busy playing corporate events, outdoor shows and clubs.

By this time, my mother was in her eighties. I discovered how important music was for her while in rehab for a fractured hip. Not only did it raise her spirits, it also cheered up those around her. Sadly, my sister is in an advanced stage of Alzheimer/dementia and is with hospice. Although she hasn’t spoken for over five years, when I play a Beatles song, she laughs and tries to talk. She normally stares at the wall or ceiling, until I play a song from her most active years. She then comes out of her trance and starts smiling and even laughing. On occasion, she’ll even try to sing. We have documented this many times. In the future, this will be added to the MHHP website.

Music Has Healing Powers… believe it!

Shina Sebring
Director of Technology/Social Media Production
“Let’s be practical: musicians become programmers, generally not the other way around, simply because those gigs actually pay the bills.” –Rob Birdwell


It’s said, ‘Musicians make great programmers.’

As a classical pianist accompanying proficient singers, cellists and choirs while finding the magic and love of performing for convalescent homes and retirement communities in Orange County, Shina detoured to LA in the early 80s to explore and further her musical career. During this time, a chance meeting with Bruce Lowe of Cinema Show Music turned out to be major beneficial life influence.

Some years later, an unexpected new chapter opened as Shina made a dramatic career change from music to technology. This was the start of a 20+ years career as a professional computer developer.

In 2010, having seen a need for a website enhancement, Shina called Bruce out of the blue and stated one simple thing, “Bruce, I’d like to do your website.”

Shina has worked with Bruce and Cinema Show Music since then and has also adopted the role of Manager of Technology and Developer for Bruce Lowe’s non-profit foundation, Music Has Healing Power.
