Our motto is Transforming Disabilities into Abilities. HFM seeks to unite ALL disabilities, of ALL ages as much as possible under one roof.

Our repertoire of music ranges from classical to jazz to pop standards.  We are proud to have more than 30 HFM musicians in our program, spanning Summit, Stark, Portage and Geauga counties in NE Ohio. In Summer of 2023 we were thrilled to form a HFM group in Schnecksville PA!
