Studies have shown that music in healthcare settings can:
- Reduce blood pressure and heart and respiration rates
- Decrease pain perception and levels of fear, stress and anxiety
- Increase feelings of self-worth and overall well-being
- Increase sense of control in situations that may feel depersonalizing or outside of one’s control *
Sing for Hope’s Healing Arts healthcare outreach program provides the gift of music, complementing the healing process, and providing entertainment and uplift for patients, families, and caregivers.
