The American Institute for Music and Healing is excited to begin a new research project in November 2021 at the Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute Savannah, GA, USA. 

AIMH director Peter Shannon received IRB approval for his research project, to be run over 12 months, which will track the efficacy of musicians playing for patients receiving chemotherapy at the Infusion area of the Anderson Cancer Institution. "What we have seen in the past is that music offers a 'portal' or 'prism' for patients to use the music being played for them as a path for compassionate connection to moments, experiences and people in their lives. This research project allows us to document this experience and share our findings with others; to truly add some meat to the bones of the old adage that 'music is healing'."
