Another year in Austin came and went much too fast! This year featured room-to-room performances at St. Davids, an amazing concert at Dell Children’s, and the successful recording of 20 #SXSW artists – soon to be featured on MyMusicRx.org!
MyMusicRx empowers sick kids to positively shift their mood through custom interaction with music. The MyMusicRx program includes hospital bedside service, in hospital live concerts, and a 24/7 online music medicine platform. All designed to relieve stress, anxiety, and perception of pain for pediatric patients of all diagnoses.
For the last seven years, MyMusicRx has hosted live concerts at Dell Children’s Medical Center and for kids and families at SxSW. MyMusicRx is offered bedside at St. David’s Children’s Hospital and will very soon begin in hospital service at Dell.
Music Heals. You Can Help.
