The Full Story
Music as Medicine was originally founded as a club in 2020 during the midst of the pandemic. Since then, Music as Medicine has been dedicated to performing at multiple hospitals throughout the Houston area, bringing the joy of music to the community. Our mission is to provide healing and comfort to those in need of it through the power of music. We strive to bring people together to share in the joy of music.
Our organization began with just 60 members who signed up initially and 25 active members. We have performed at Methodist and Memorial Hermann, spreading the love for music to the community. There was an impressive turnout to kick off the second year of the club. Though now in person, the club still maintains their monthly meetings and monthly video submissions.
