Mission

PLAY MUSIC – ENJOY LIFE!™ is a non-profit Music and Wellness piano program that strives to provide the best possible opportunity to enjoy and partake in the fun and numerous health benefits of active participation in music making. We operate under the belief that an hour of escape each week for anyone in our program who has endured the suffering and stress of a serious health affliction can add wonderful aspects of Wellness to their life

Notes from the nonprofit

The PLAY MUSIC – ENJOY LIFE! program follows the Music and Wellness philosophy by offering people of all ages a chance to step back from daily stressors, and encourages self-exploration and expression through music. Most people want to learn and play the piano for daily enjoyment and personal gratification. They want to play for themselves as well as for their friends and family and to share the joy and exhilaration of the music they create. Music and Wellness is MORE than about inspiring extraordinary music-making, it’s about inspiring extraordinary life. Music and Wellness is MORE than about exceptional performance, it’s about exceptional support and personal experience. Music and Wellness is MORE than about teaching people to play, it’s about giving them permission to play. The best Music and Wellness facilitators are MORE than just talented musicians, They are caring, compassionate and intuitive musical guides.
