Music in Hospitals & Care

Who we are

We’re a charity that improves the health and wellbeing of children and adults through the healing power of live music.

Every year, our professional musicians share live music with over 100,000 people from across the UK, who may not otherwise get to experience it. This includes those living with dementia, who have mental health problems, or who are seriously ill. 

We believe live music needs to be part of everyone’s health and social care. Why? Because research shows that live music heals. It helps people feel relaxed and confident, and can relieve frustration, stress and isolation. Music can also reduce the perception of pain. It brings back memories and helps create new ones. When you move your body to music – even just tapping a finger – it’s natural physiotherapy.

Our dedicated music team handpicks professional musicians through audition. They’re chosen for their blend of musical talent, sensitivity and people skills. The live music experiences they create and share unlock all kinds of emotions – from joy to loss, pleasure to nostalgia. Unlocking these emotions supports people’s wellbeing. 

We see people interacting with our musicians by doing everything from smiling to getting up to dance or sing.

Live music can transform relationships between patients, families, healthcare professionals, residents and carers. When people enjoy music together, they feel more connected to each other, which leads to more personalised care.

Only with your support will we help more people benefit from the healing power of live music. Please support Music in Hospitals & Care today at mihc.org.uk
