The Dick Wagner “Remember the Child” Memorial Fund creates and funds music therapy programs for hospitalized children. We provide musical instruments, certified music teachers, and funding to bring the healing powers of music and creativity to hospitalized children. We give from the heart to the soul through music.
ABOUT MUSIC THERAPY
Music therapists bring the joy of music directly to children in the hospital setting. Singing and playing music enhances mood, emotional expression, and improves functional and cognitive motor skills. Music motivates children to walk, grasp, or stand. Clinical studies reveal physical benefits of improved respiration, decreased pain perception, stress relief, lowered blood pressure, improved cardiac output, reduced heart rate, and relaxed muscle tension. Music therapy supports the physical, emotional, social and cognitive well-being of children.
"Music is well said to be the speech of angels"
~ Thomas Carlyle, Philosopher
