Academy Donations & Partnerships
MM provides instrument donations and grants to help sustain and expand music programs tailored for youth with ASD and intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Our partnerships allow us a broad outreach to a variety of communities facing life challenging circumstances. Please submit an application to nominate an academy for a donation. We welcome the opportunity to partner with non-profit organizations that share similar initiatives and giving goals.
The Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and MM began our partnership in 2014. We provide the recording equipment to the therapists working bedside with children that are too ill to leave their rooms. The gift of learning music and playing instruments gives these children an outlet of expression and connection. Should the child development an aptitude for music; MM will purchase an instrument of their choice so they may continue to develop their talents in or out of the hospital.
We could not provide the level of care that we do without the consistent generous support from Music Movement. The power of music therapy within a pediatric medical setting is life changing for patients and their families. During a music therapy session, the music has the ability to let the children be children, not just patients. Also through music therapy we can empower patients to share their story, stress, worries, and hopes. Thank you for all you do for the patients and families here at CHOC Children’s.
