We provide funding for music therapy programs which will help to offset the costs of music therapy sessions, salaries of music therapists, instruments, recording equipment, computer programs and computer software that will be used to make and share music for teens and young adults.

Through events, personal solicitations and on line fund raising, we will continue to raise the funds required to complete Tyler's Room at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center.

We are able to serve a teen and young adult population in New York City on a referral basis at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center with the healing and expressive qualities of music therapy.

The music therapists monitor patients' progress through written, visual and verbal evaluations. Since we are involved in the medical field, we do not monitor progress but very much appreciate the amazing work of the therapists and patients.

Tyler's Room at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center is open, equipped and used on a daily basis. It is an inviting space with recording equipment, musical instruments, cds, artwork, and couches. We will continue to fund updated equipment and purchase other necessities as required.
