Music Helps Mini Festival  for Helping Hand Home

As we wrap up another incredible year at Music Helps ATX, we are thrilled to reflect on the impact and progress made through our weekly workshops at Helping Hand Home. Throughout the year, our dedicated team of music helpers and volunteers have worked tirelessly to provide music therapy sessions to the children at Helping Hand Home, helping them to express themselves, build confidence, and develop important social and emotional skills.

One of the highlights of the year was our fabulous end of year mini festival for the kids, which was a big success! The event brought together the children, their families, and our amazing team for a day of music, dancing, and fun. The kids had the opportunity to showcase their musical talents, perform for their peers, and celebrate all of their hard work throughout the year.

The mini festival was a true testament to the power of music therapy and the positive impact it has on the children we work with. We are incredibly proud of all of the progress they have made and the confidence they have gained through our workshops. A highlight for many is watching the children support each other through their songs. 

As we look ahead to the new year, we are excited to continue our work at Helping Hand Home and expand our reach to even more children in need. Thank you to all of our supporters, volunteers, and partners who have helped make this year a success. Here's to another year of music, growth, and joy!

Thanks for your support on Giving Tuesday!


Our first SHE RISES was EVERYTHING & more!


IT BEGAN WITH AN EIGHT-MEMBER INDIGENOUS CHOIR OFFERING A BLESSING AND SONG AND ENDED WITH NEARLY EVERYONE IN THE AUDIENCE SINGING, DANCING AND PAYING HOMAGE TO THE SPIRIT AND STRENGTH OF TINA TURNER AND ALL THAT SHE EXEMPLIFIED FOR FEMALE LIBERATION. AND, A GREAT DEAL HAPPENED IN BETWEEN.

Andrea Magee’s inaugural International She Rises Music Fest came to Taos to create a bond and sense of community to uplift and empower women. “I am completely over the moon with the response,” commented Magee the day after the final events (yoga and a self-defense class) took place at Kit Carson Park. “People came to me with tears in their eyes and told me it was deep and meaningful, that it was something healing. Women commented that they loved being part of something so powerful.”
