The Johns Hopkins Center for Music and Medicine (CMM) is the first collaborative organization of its kind, bringing together artists and performers of the Peabody Institute with clinicians, researchers and scientists of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to explore the complex relationship between music and health, and the possibilities for healing through music.


CMM brings music and medicine together by:

  1. Making music and rhythm an integral part of treating illness
  2. Improving the health of musicians worldwide


CMM leverages the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s world-class expertise and excellence in research and clinical care and the Peabody Institute’s renowned performance training for musicians. The goals of our center are developing research, clinical care, education and outreach projects that bring music, science and medicine together to benefit patients, health care workers and musicians.
