Our program – Healing Our Heroes – helps military veterans in the Tri-state area (NY, CT, NJ) who are returning home with a variety of psychological and physical injuries sustained while on active duty. This program, which was established in September 2013, provides music therapy and music instruction to restore, support and improve the physical, emotional, psychological, and neurological functioning of our veterans, while also improving the quality of life for them and their families. We are working with local Veterans centers and VA hospitals to continuously identify veterans for this program. For more information, contact Dr. Tina Brescia.

Special thanks to Joel Breitkopf, board member and founding sponsor, who provided initial support for this program through The Breitkopf Family Veterans Scholarship Fund.
