At Park & Battery, we’re always tuned in to supporting great causes. And, as we welcome the holiday season, our spirits are high with the joy of giving. This year, we’re thrilled to announce our partnership with The Children’s Music Fund (CMF) for an inspiring new campaign.
Introducing the ‘Music Makes Us Better’ initiative – a heartfelt endeavor to spotlight Music Therapy as a vital form of healing and care. CMF, celebrated for providing Music Therapy programs for children at no cost, is leading this nationwide effort to enhance awareness and generate support for the remarkable benefits of Music Therapy.
It’s truly music to our ears to be part of such a meaningful cause.
About the campaign
The ‘Music Makes Us Better’ campaign aims to increase awareness and adoption of Music Therapy as a crucial form of treatment to help children tackle serious health challenges. As a first national endeavor for the organization, the campaign seeks to establish Music Therapy as a universally acknowledged treatment covered by insurance, equating it with other recognized physical and mental therapies.
“The benefits of Music Therapy are immense, yet it’s true essence is not always understood by the public or even healthcare professionals and insurers. This therapy is more than just a momentary aid for children in need. It equips them with lasting coping mechanisms to handle ongoing challenges from chronic illnesses or complex medical conditions. Music Therapy is not merely about playing an instrument; it’s a synergistic blend of creativity, collaboration, and therapeutic intervention.”Tracey Burnett, Executive Director, Children’s Music Fund
The campaign’s creative dimension
The campaign includes a compelling 10-minute documentary on Music Therapy, alongside real-life profiles of patients and therapists, all filmed at the historic Village Studios in Los Angeles.
