Rising Star Izzy Jane knows the healing power of music. Herizon Music's mission is to give young female music makers a better chance at career success, yet COVID19 revealed a critical secondary benefit of our programs: Improving Teen's Mental Health. Teen help lines report a 50% increase in calls/texts since March 2020. Our music programs can turn that around! As Izzy says, "If an angel gave money to support Herizon Music programs, it would tremendously help many girls in need of healing."
Studies show that teen anxiety and depression increased ~50% between 2013 and 2018. COVID-19 has exponentially increased those rates with one teen help line stating it has seen a 50% increase in texts and calls since March 2020. While this is devastating to hear, the good news is that research shows that listening to and creating music makes a positive difference
Our programs include scholarship grants, supplemental pay for camp teachers, production of the role-modeling podcast "Backstage Chats with Women In Music," and an upcoming virtual music business education series. Research shows that music programs help: - Develop coping and relaxation skills - Express oneself both verbally and non-verbally - Improve concentration and attention span - Adopt positive forms of behavior
There is a positive chain of events that will produce long-term impact: * Girls receive the emotional and practical benefits mentioned above. * The next generation of women gain experience in the music industry, which leads to more jobs in leadership roles-- reducing sexism, sexual harassment, and stereotyping. * More woman will achieve success and pay it forward to the next generation.
