What If Music Was

More Than Entertainment?

What if it had the power to inspire awakening, heal hearts, and stir our imagination?

What if we could connect with a Song of Wisdom, Wonder & Universal Welcome inside us?

The Therapeutic (Healing) Music of Heart and Hope is presented as a well-thought-out and well-performed program of INTERACTIVE MUSIC. The kind of music that appeals to our audience. The kind of music that makes “connections”. The kind that sets feet to tapping and hands to clapping. An Uplifting and Joyful Experience which enhances the well-being of Heart, Mind, and Soul for ELDERS and all who hear it!

Our Music

When invited, we sing at the bedside of those struggling with life. Our songs are chosen to respond to our patients’ spiritual direction and physical condition. We create an environment of love, hope, and comfort in this time of transformation.

Words of Appreciation

“Hi, I’m Jennalee and I work in the Activities Department of Skylark Assisted Living Memory Care Unit. Heart and Hope Ministries comes into our community every Monday to play music and enrich the lives of our residents, and I must say that it is always one of the brightest parts of my week. The therapeutic effects of music, and power of the kindness and positive energy that Heart and Hope’s volunteers radiate never ceases to amaze me. People with memory disorders who have issues remembering many other things always remember the Heart and Hope crew. People who are normally reserved will sing and dance and those who are agitated or anxious always feel soothed and calmed. During the slow, relaxing tunes some people will nod off into a nap and wake up a few moments later with a smile, ready to sing along to the next song. The smiles on their faces are genuine and the happiness lasts throughout the day. In the evening I always can hear the residents and staff humming or whistling a tune from the show hours earlier. It reminds me of the simple things in life that are deeply engrained within us and bring joy no matter our age or ability.

The volunteers of Heart and Hope Ministries are wonderful people who are kind, warm and generous. They remember all the residents’ names and favorite songs, and always have many kind words and smiles for everyone. I believe they improve and enrich the lives of everyone their paths cross, and I highly recommend their services to anyone, even if only for the simple pleasure of listening to a classic, lovely song played beautifully. Thank you to everyone at Heart and Hope for all that you do!”
