About

Helping Kids Succeed Through Music

Regent Park School of Music is non-profit 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 succeed through music. For over 18 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.

Over 30 members of our community raised $11,475 during our first year as a charity in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. They achieved incredible feats in the 5k, half marathon, and marathon, and we could not be more proud of them or grateful for their support. Congratulations to Team RPSM!
