About Make Music Matter

Make Music Matter (MMM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to using the power of music to heal and empower communities affected by trauma and violence. Its innovative Healing in Harmony music therapy program offers a safe space for expression, healing, and growth. Participants emerge with a renewed sense of agency and self-worth. Their original songs are professionally produced and serve as advocacy tools to promote their rights and combat stigma. 

In Canada, MMM is working with Indigenous partners Aboriginal Legal Services in Toronto and Kehewin Native Dance Theatre in central Alberta to help break barriers to accessing mental health support, bringing together experts in trauma-informed interventions, arts-based youth empowerment programs, and music therapy for traumatized communities.

From survivors of sexual and gender-based violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo to young Syrian refugees with disabilities, and survivors of intergenerational trauma in Indigenous communities in Canada, Healing in Harmony has helped transform the lives of over 14,000 individuals in nine countries worldwide.
