Have you ever met someone who from that first moment they touched your soul?  I'm not talking about your soul mate, I'm talking about someone who you see right through and know that their heart is pure and their energy lifts your spirits?

Meet Sherry Kennedy.  Sherry Kennedy is a highly accomplished recording artist, songwriter, entertainer and vocal coach, extending her talents beyond the ordinary. As a vocal coach Sherry has worked with people of all ages and walks of life who wish to learn to sing. As well as the art of singing, she has coached many business professionals on how to use their speaking voices more effectively. These sessions are great confidence builders and make presentations in the workplace much more interesting and fluid. Through workshop scenarios, one on one coaching sessions and corporate team building events, Sherry has assisted countless people discover the voices within.  And now... she's presenting The Healing Art of Music Foundation.

A non-profit organization created for the purpose of providing opportunities to individuals who would benefit from experiencing the healing powers of music and other forms of creative expression. Made up of a group of professional people from all walks of life. Each individual has been touched by music in one way or another and is involved in the healing aspects of daily living. As a group, we believe that people of all ages, skill levels, physical and mental abilities and challenges; benefit from the experience of different artistic endeavours. Not everyone is financially able to participate. As well, many important musical camps and art camps lack funding to hire the finest teachers available to share their expertise.

The mission of The Healing Art of Music Foundation is to extend an opportunity to those individuals in need, by financially assisting them to achieve their desired goal. It is our intention to Educate, Enlighten, Entertain and Heal.

Applications are currently being accepted for
Jean Elizabeth Sparacino Memorial Bursary.
