Music has been used for healing purposes since ancient times. Healing Muses provides high-quality, live music to support patient care in hospitals, hospices, cancer care and convalescent centers throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our harp music creates a stress-reducing and calming environment that reinforces healing for patients, visitors and staff. We are sometimes asked why we don’t use volunteer musicians to reduce costs. Healing Muses’ fifteen years experience has confirmed that hiring -- and compensating -- a carefully-vetted team of musicians ensures our ability to deliver on our promise.
- Quality – Our musicians are skilled at using music therapeutically and are able to adjust to situational needs.
- Continuity – Our musicians return; their familiarity with each location’s routines allows them to integrate with individual programs of care.
- Collaboration – Our musicians get to know staff and work with them to meet patients’ needs.
- Focus – Our focus is on healing. It’s not about the musician; it’s not about marketing. We are a non-profit; our funds and efforts go directly to support this work.

Seeking a New Executive Director
Healing Muses has been incredibly fortunate to have enjoyed the passionate work of Patrice Haan in the role of Executive Director for the past eight years. The time has come for her to pass along this important role to another. We are seeking a dynamic, articulate and experienced leader to serve as our Executive Director. As we are small (but mighty!) this is not a full time position.
