Michigan Medicine | Sophie’s Place - Music Therapy Suite

The mission of Sophie’s Place is to provide exemplary music therapy services to patients and families that will enhance the physical, emotional, and psychological needs of each patient. Sophie’s Place at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, the sixth in the nation, is a dedicated music therapy environment designed to promote creative expression, safety, and solace for patients and their families throughout the healing process.

This program expands the music therapy experience to allow for the therapy team to increase the amount of music therapy services by providing:

  • A variety of instruments for clinical use.
  • A state-of-the-art recording studio where patients can write, perform, and record their own music.
  • Music-based virtual programming to promote connection, engagement, and socialization.
  • Space for celebrity and community music performances, with capabilities for live-streaming performances through the hospital’s closed-circuit TV network for patients unable to leave their rooms.

“It’s incredible to have a dedicated space within Mott that will enhance music therapy experiences for patients and families,” Sophie’s Place Studio Manager Meredith Irvine said in a statement. “Music is an inherent part of who we are as individuals and how we connect with one another. “Sophie’s Place will allow us to provide individualized music therapy services that meet the needs of each patient throughout their journey and healing process.”
