Community Music Schools of Toronto is all about kids thriving through music

Community Music Schools of Toronto is a registered charity that gives children and youth a rich and rewarding music and social education, by removing the financial obstacle.


For 25 years we have seen that the study of music allows young people to flourish creatively, personally and academically...enriching their lives and future prospects. Our students have access to some of Toronto’s best music teachers and a vast array of musical instruments and options.


Our students’ study everything from classical piano, strings, voice, brass, wind and percussion to electronic music, songwriting and recording. They make music with fellow students, faculty and even the odd celebrity and perform all over the city. We also offer countless leadership opportunities through our Youth Committee and mentorship programs and provide employment experience for junior counsellors at our summer music camps.


In addition to bringing music to kids in Regent Park and Jane Finch we are also giving a music education to Indigenous students at Wandering Spirit School and young newcomers to Canada.


We are truly grateful to many individuals, foundations, corporations and government entities for investing in our students and helping them thrive through music.
