AIFEC at Boys & Girls Clubs
Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs of Hamilton
This partnership with the Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs, supported by a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, 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 also builds 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 hopes to 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.
