What We Do
Room 217 is a music-based health arts organization and social enterprise. We provide an innovative approach to health and well-being called music care. Music care enhances quality of life and improves the care experience.
Since 2005, Room 217’s team of music educators, music therapists, music and health researchers, community musicians and artists, has been helping carers integrate music into their regular practice.
At Room 217, we produce and deliver music care products, education and training, collaborate in applied research, coach and consult with healthcare teams in music and care.
