Effective immediately (March 13), all Regent Park School of Music programs and school events, including CRESCENDO 2020 are cancelled.  We are continuing to monitor this evolving situation, and following the guidance of public health and education officials, and we will update you as soon as we have more news to share. 

In the meantime, please visit for guidelines and directions on how to keep yourself and your family safe and healthy.

We will do our very best to keep you up to date when there are updates, on our social media, by e-mail, and at

Urgent questions or concerns may be directed to 416.364.8900, otherwise, thank you for understanding, as we all do our part in working through this rapidly evolving global health challenge.

We hope to be back to making music together as a community soon, we thank you for your patience, and we wish for good health and safety for all members of the RPSM community. 



Helping Kids Thrive Through Music

Regent Park School of Music is a community music school. We are here to give as many kids as possible a music education, by removing the financial obstacle.

This year, we are set to give 1,000 young people aged 3-18 a highly subsidized quality music education at our central hub in Daniels Spectrum in Regent Park and in Jane and Finch and other high-priority neighbourhoods in Toronto.

Our goal is to help kids thrive through music. For 20 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 over 80 dedicated music teachers and an array of musical options and instruments. They study everything from classical piano and violin to turntablism and electronic music and perform all over the city.

We are most grateful to many individuals, foundations and corporations for investing in our students and giving them the gift of music.

If you’d like to learn more about RPSM, arrange a tour, hear some of our youngsters in action and discover how you might help too, please contact me. Your interest is really appreciated.
