Research has shown that different regions of the brain respond more to music than any other stimulus, suggesting that various types of music therapy could be used to help patients regain such functions as speech and memory.

Imagination Heals, a non-profit organization founded by Aaron Ableman, creates musical programming for hospitalized children. Working directly with children who have been diagnosed with cancer, a blood disorder, or some other serious disease, Imagination Heals strives to transport children from the hospital into a creative new world. Furthermore, the organization believes that music has the potential to change these young people’s lives for the better. Currently, the organization is presenting performances of Pacha’s Pajamas, a pop musical featuring a host of animal characters.
