Musical training can teach a child more than how to play a few tunes: at School of Music Montreal, lessons are designed to empower students with confidence and self-knowledge. The McGill-based non-profit group is on a mission to make quality musical education available to all children.
Students learn the basics of musical technique in a safe, supportive environment that encourages personal and emotional growth. The experience provides a valuable base on which to build future learning experiences: students meet strong role models, participate in an open and engaging learning community, and have the opportunity to nurture a passion that might otherwise be beyond their means.
Students are able to join the program via referral from their school, and candidates are accepted based on their interest in music and their need for the type of structure and support offered by the program.
