HWH Takes Kindergarteners On Songwriting Journey
"Kindergarteners are an endless well of silly creativity," Buckheister said. "Their fearlessness is inspiring and at times alternates between hilarious and profound. I am a big five-year-old with lots of musical equipment and I try to reveal to them the musical building blocks for building musical creation. Top priorities are engaging their creativity and fostering a safe, creative zone where all share alike; a tiny little music community."
HWH Brings Hope To MUSC Patients
During a recent visit, the team worked with the patients to paint super hero self portraits. The goal is to give kids confidence they are strong and powerful (super powers) in their stay at the hospital and with their medical illnesses.
The program involves both the patients, who range in age from 1 to 18, and their families, who participate in visual arts and music activities to help support them emotionally through their treatment. HWH also visits to patients' rooms and bring them a therapeutic activity in the visual arts and music, if they are unable join the larger group in the common meeting area. The music and art therapy activities are calming for the patients and a distraction from their pain.
