Striking A Notable Difference In Healthcare Since 2002

Singing Along Brings Smiles

A mother walked in with her two young children. One was a very agitated three-year-old and the mom kept yelling at her to behave. The young child heard the harp and just stared at it and stopped crying. A 70+ patient who was also waiting started singing along to my music as I played several songs. The little child settled down and the older patient really enjoyed the encounter saying, “See, you can be happy too! Just sing along with me.”  Pretty soon other patients and visitors waiting in the room started singing along and smiling at each other.
