Musicians On Call is a nonprofit organization that brings live and recorded music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities. Help deliver the healing power of music to patients at Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, MA! Our program is scheduled for Wednesday evenings at 5:30 PM.
MOC Volunteer Musicians perform acoustically at the bedsides of patients and are always accompanied by a trained MOC Volunteer Guide. Volunteer Musicians play one song per room and interact with patients, their families and hospital staff. All lyrics MUST be appropriate for a hospital setting, therefore MOC provides an approved song list for musicians to select their repertoire for hospital visits. Any other material outside of the approved song list may be submitted to MOC staff for approval.
Musician applicants must also submit a sample of their music prior to acceptance into the program. Volunteer Musicians must complete MOC’s training process, which includes:
- phone interview
- handbook, orientation & quiz
- sign volunteer agreement & submit photo ID
- background check
After completion of training, volunteers to commit to volunteering once a month for at least one year. Please go to www.musiciansoncall.org/volunteer to apply!
