Mazer & Smith
The magic of the Harp blended with the fluidity of Woodwinds
Collaborating since 1984, Susan E. Mazer and Dallas Smith create some of the finest contemporary instrumental music available. Their compositions for harp and woodwinds merge the aesthetics of jazz, classical, and world music into an experience that feeds both the intellect and spirit. Extending beyond the boundaries of genre, our unique sound has a richness in melody, rhythm and sonority.
Mazer and Smith immerse the listener in a transcendent sound and have been heard on National Public Radio, The Discovery Channel, and many radio stations around the country.
The C.A.R.E.® Channel
In 1992, after playing at a hospital and realizing that there was something more we could do with our music, we launched The C.A.R.E. Channel® and founded Healing HealthCare Systems. Until then, no therapeutic programming had been produced specifically for patient television.
Now available in more than 1000 healthcare facilities in the U.S. and Asia, The C.A.R.E. Channel’s stunning nature video and original instrumental music provide a therapeutic tool for use at the patient bedside, waiting areas, and public spaces in acute care hospitals, residential care facilities, hospice/palliative care units, cancer centers, children’s hospitals, and rehabilitation centers.
In addition to The C.A.R.E. Channel, Healing HealthCare Systems® produces additional video and audio programs to support patients and families, and provide educational resources and training for healthcare professionals. Our goal is to improve the patient experience by creating healing environments that reduce the harmful effects of noise, enhance pain management protocols, promote privacy, and increase safety and satisfaction.
Every day, people tell us about the positive impact C.A.R.E. has had on them as patients, family members, and staff. It’s this feedback that motivates our employees to produce extraordinary programming and provide superior service to our clients.
