“The joy you bring to our patients through your music is simply immeasurable. The smiles and comments by both staff and patients the following day are a true testament to the positive impact you have had on their lives. It is an honor for me to host such a phenomenal program!”
Recreational Therapist, Hospital for Joint Diseases, NYU Langone Medical Center

“Not too long after receiving the piano, a number of other youth participants took notice of it and asked if they were allowed to use it. We were unaware they played piano and sang as well. The participants have formed a group that gets together almost every night to play and sing together.”
Dennis Redmond, Queens Community House (Queens), 2013 piano recipient

“People say, ‘Oh, you put a piano in the South Bronx and people are going to destroy it.’ That’s not the case. I love the fact that this piano has challenged that stereotype, you know. We in the South Bronx are worthy of this piano. And at the end of the day, this piano will continue to live and be a part of this community. We have access, we can appreciate it, and we can take care of it.”
Lisette Nieves, Betances Community Center (Bronx), 2011 & 2013 piano buddy & recipient
