Chateau Gardot Music Medicine Program- "Music speaks when Words Fail"2

The Music Medicine Program is a student run program that uses different aspects of music in therapeutic ways.  The program aims to expose patients to music for relaxation and to treat pain.  Patients will also have the opportunity to work with student musicians to create music as a therapeutic modality. 

Who is eligible?

All are welcome. Anyone who thinks they would benefit from music in their daily lives should contact the email address mentioned below. There are no age or skill level requirements.

Who are we?

We are students at Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, NJ. Most of us are musicians in some degree but many of us do not have any official musicial experience but do enjoy music in our daily lives.

What do we provide?

There are three main arms to Music Medicine at Rowan SOM: group program, individual lessons and research. We offer group therapy in the form of drum circles which occur multiple times per month at different locations (on calendar tab to the left). Individual therapy is provided in the form of private music lessons free of charge to anyone who requests them. As of now we teach piano, guitar, ukelele, mandolin, percussion, violin and cello. We are also conducting research related to music therapy through the Neuromuscular Institute.

How do you contact us?

By far the best way to contact us is by email: You can address the email to "Executive Board" and we will get back to you as soon as we can. All inquiries are welcome.

You can also call the Neuromuscular Institute and request more information: (856) 566-7010. Ask for Nikole and she can guide you to the right information.


We are glad you have taken interest in our program and hope to hear from you soon!
