What We Do

It’s no secret that music can help you feel better.
That’s why Musicians On Call brings music to the people who need it most – hospital patients.

Musicians On Call brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. By delivering live, in-room performances to patients undergoing treatment or unable to leave their beds, we add a dose of joy to life in a healthcare facility.

Our Impact

We seek to change the cold, sterile environment in hospital rooms. Musicians On Call believes that all patients, families and caregivers should have access to and benefit from the healing power of live music. It has been demonstrated that music has a direct effect on people and can:

Improve Blood Pressure

Manage Stress

Alleviate Pain and Improve Pain Tolerance

Improve Outlook and Overall Mood

Project Playback gives patients the chance to write and record their own original music with a Musicians On Call volunteer. The songs are recorded in the hospital and then we host a CD release party for the patients, family and caregivers to celebrate their work.
