Our programs are designed to create music opportunities for children and youth in Hamilton’s neighbourhoods with the greatest need and fewest resources. Through their engagement with music, children become self-motivated lifelong learners, build self-confidence and become active members of their community.

Our core program provides over 650 children with classroom instruction, through a weekly grade 1 general music class or private music lesson in groups of 4-6 students. Our advanced programming provides older students with opportunities to continue their playing in a rock band, orchestra, string ensemble, or jam setting.

Our core music lessons through our partner schools are provided at no cost to the student or the school. Some of our advanced programming have fees involved, which may be subsidized.
