AIFEC at Boys & Girls Clubs
Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs of Hamilton
This recently launched program, supported by a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, also introduces a new instruction model for AIFEC’s music education programs. The new model includes “listening in” opportunities for parents and guardians of post-Grade 1 students which helps them to become more engaged in their child’s music learning experience.
This partnership will also build on AIFEC’s current programming, to include; additional and more specialized instruction, such as percussion, song-writing and a rock band class for children interested in advancing their skills beyond the classroom setting.
In addition to free instrumental lessons, AIFEC will expand the program to include vocal and band programs, as well as a beat-making project to reach a wider and more diverse audience of Hamilton’s inner-city children.
