Being involved with Musicians On Call has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. I consider it a great gift to be able to share music and bring smiles to these brave children and their loved ones. It is healing for us all and I can't wait to do it again!
I think all musicians should do this. I think everyone could do it no matter what music genre you play from. You see people in the hospital all the time, you're a visitor. To me, to be a part of their day for a minute is a great experience. This is a day I will never forget.
I have volunteered for Musicians on Call for the past 13 years because of the incredible one-on-one experiences in hospital rooms when no one other than the patient and I would remember the love that was exchanged.
It's an amazing experience to go into a room to play music for people who are in a situation where they can use music as medicine.
What made me decide to come here today was the invitation from Musicians On Call. I can't even begin to tell you how much I admire and respect the work they do and what an honor it is to be a part of it.
I thank Musicians On Call and the whole fabric of what its about - Me being a musician and being able to participate and knowing this is going on in so many hospital rooms across the country and knowing this is spreading so much love and joy.
I enjoy Musicians On Call because it strips down the performing aspect of music to its most basic function - to share, to heal, to inspire. It's just you and another person sharing an intimate moment that is actually bigger than the both of you.
Music is so healing. Whether you’re in a hospital bed or you’re driving down the road just broken up with your boyfriend, it has such a healing power.
You're just alone in a room that doesn't know anything about you. It's spoken to me truly better than any other musical experience I've had.
It was like a whole different communication and contact thanks to the healing powers of music, and all I had to do was really, do what comes naturally.
Being a part Musicians On Call for our Veterans was one of the most gratifying and joyful experiences I’ve had in my life as a musician. It’s easy to take for granted what we enjoy and do every day, but moments like these are what it’s really all about. The universal language and a magical moment in time.
I’ve had the chance to bring music to children several times through Musicians On Call, and visibly seen how much music lifts their spirits.
I have never experienced anything quite like playing for these veterans. These men and women have sacrificed their lives for our freedom ... my freedom to be able to play my music. I have so much respect for them. It was an honor to be able to spend time with them and hopefully brighten their day a little. I know it has certainly changed my life.
