Harps of Comfort is a remote organization that provides remote music to isolated patients; those with COVID-19 and other serious illness; patients nearing the end of life; as well as loved ones and caregivers. Using the gentle vibrations of harp and voice, our highly-training therapeutic musicians offer individually tailored, live music sessions with compassionate loving presence.
Harps of Comfort is a fiscally-sponsored project of the nonprofit Community Initiatives. This field education site will operate remotely.
Opportunities for Student Involvement:
Field education students will support the day-to-day operations of Harps of Comfort and attend weekly Zoom meetings with the harpists offering care. They will support communications, social media, website design and updates, communications with new sites. We are a new and growing organization so students will have the opportunity to provide support for research, work on fundraising efforts, streamline processes, and assist the program in growing its mission.
Students will also have the opportunity to engage in the wider music-thanatology community, which provides music and end-of-life care to patients across the country and the world. They will have the chance to attend the annual (virtual) fall conference for the Music-Thanatology Association International, and do special projects for the Accorda Music-Thanatology Institute, a new music-thanatology training program and nonprofit organization.
This is a virtual field education site.
