At KEYS, we provide free music therapy, Smile Concerts and Smile Experience family respite days for children impacted by cancer and serious illnesses both locally and across the US.
In addition to our free programs, we also offer a variety of programs for a fee for service for the community (non KEYS kids) - from 1:1 individual music therapy sessions and instrument lessons to group classes, for all ages and abilities. These community programs help us raise funds for our free programs for our KEYS kids-- the gift of music that keeps giving!
Whether in the community, at our studio space in Oneida, NY or via telehealth, we are here to meet you where you are and guide you!
Thank you for helping us continue to deliver music, hope and smiles to our KEYS kids all year!
Our Smile Experience is a special cancer-free zone where we provide KEYS families a break from cancer treatment to enjoy a day together filled with over-the-top silliness, music, laughter and smiles!
INSTRUMENT LESSONS AND CLASSES
We offer a student-led approach to learning, where we gear all of our music lessons and classes to each student's musical preferences, needs, age and abilities!
“Just when we were feeling weary and alone, the KEYS staff arrives bringing music, light and hope back into our hearts. Thank you for always being there to help us through this journey.”
