Social change through music

Every school year, our students take part in after-school group music lessons from professional music teachers. Their afternoon begins with a nutritious snack, followed by choir, Orff, and instrument classes on the violin, viola, and cello. Every student plays in our orchestra. This free program runs from September to May. New students can apply here.

Why are we doing this?

We believe in social change through music. Our program gives students from all backgrounds the wonderful gift of making music, but our real goal is to give them more: self-expression, achievement, teamwork, leadership, and friendship. We give them a safe space to make music and to build a healthy future.

Who are we?

We are a non-profit, charitable society. We have a Board of volunteer directors, a hired administrator, and a program director. We have a team of professional music teachers and a network of volunteers who do everything from preparing food to leading our “walking school bus”. Our facilities are generously provided by Bakerview Church and The Life Centre church but we are not religiously affiliated.

Who pays for this?

Our students come from families which cannot afford music lessons. We rely entirely on donations from individuals, businesses and foundations to run our program.
