About

It is our belief that kids living in high-risk neighbourhoods have the same love and passion for music as kids anywhere. We are committed to providing music, teachers, instruments and a program that is uniquely tailored to each child’s interests to give them a creative outlet that will help them flourish and reach their full potential.

In 1999, a group of volunteers headed by lawyer Judith Hinchman, started Regent Park School of Music in a church basement, thanks to the help of Father Tom Day, a local priest.  Within a week 71 kids had signed up.  Today, some 15 years later, over 1300 kids are receiving a music education at our new central hub in the Daniels Spectrum in Regent Park and 7 other high-priority areas across Toronto.

Where other music schools might focus solely on classical technique, RPSM offers a diverse choice with over 50 professional educators specialized in everything from classical to non-traditional music forms.

Feel free to get in touch, if you’d like to learn more about RPSM, our wonderful students and how you might be able to help.
