KEYS Launches the KEYS Kids Network!

We are so excited to announce the launch of our new KEYS Kids Network, a unique kids only channel of music and fun that we broadcast to pediatric patients in children's hospitals and sites across the US!

For patients ages 1 through 10 we have a zany, interactive, educational KEYS Kids Network Kids Show with silly skits, songs and jokes along with Stories for Kids guaranteed to make your child SMILE! We have a cool "virtual coffee house" for patients ages 10 through 18, hosted by rising teen star Emalee Herrington, where kids can enjoy great music, get to know some awesome musicians and share their music with other kids across the country!

Music Toolkits Sent to 250 Children's Hospitals in 2017!

Thanks to a grant from the America Legion Child Welfare Fund  and the Tony Stewart Foundation, the KEYS Program published a special Music Toolkit that was given away to 250 children's hospitals and sites in December 2017. 


Included in each Music Toolkit are:


A comprehensive guide with research on the benefits of music, links to music education and therapy resources, music activities parents can do with their children, an award-winning children's book "Good Days are for Walking" and information on ways parents can incorporate music in the care of their child.  There is information in each Music Toolkit connecting the pediatric patients to our new KEYS Kids Network! We even threw in some awesome inspirational posters for each hospital site to post at their sites and colorful stickers too! 


Be sure to check out the songs that go along with the toolkit on our website so your kids can sing and dance along!! 


Our next round of Toolkits will be sent out to various children’s hospitals and sites later in 2018.  There will be a limited number of Toolkits available. If you are a Child Life Specialist or Music Therapist and would like sign up to receive a Toolkit in 2018, please contact the KEYS Program at!
