Hear Your Song

Our Mission:

Hear Your Song at Yale is an undergraduate organization, founded at Yale University in January 2014 to give hospitalized children, and children in long-term care, the chance to become songwriters and to hear their songs recorded. In clinical settings, children do not always have the opportunity for artistic self-expression. Hear Your Song at Yale is dedicated to giving pediatric patients the chance to express themselves freely and seeks to empower children to find their voice. Hear Your Song works with children in nearby medical pediatric facilities to write original songs, which Yale College musicians arrange, record, and send back to the patients and their families. Now one of a handful of chapters under the national Hear Your Song non-profit organization, Hear Your Song at Yale works with patients through the Yale-New Haven Health system and through national partnerships like the Double H Ranch to reach even more children with complex needs who want to express themselves through music.
