Helping Kids Succeed Through Music

Dear parents/guardians and/or students,

We regret to inform you that lessons in our Regent Park location are cancelled UNTIL THE END OF JUNE, due to a fire in the Daniels Spectrum – thankfully, nobody was injured. We will be adding a credit to your file, and hope to see you back for lessons either this summer or in the fall.

Please join us from 1-3 on June 24th in the park across from Daniels Spectrum for a pot luck (rain or shine). Bring some food, and let’s enjoy each other’s company! We will continue to update our social media and to keep you all up to date on the situation.

Thanks for understanding our challenging situation, we appreciate the goodwill and support each of you continues to share. Please keep practicing your instrument, we’re excited to reconnect with you once we’re back up and running!

Important upcoming dates:
June 24 (1-3) RPSM Picnic in the Park
July 9 – Start of summer day camps
July 14 – First day of summer lessons (if applicable)
August 19 – Last day of summer term
Sept 10 – Start of Fall semester

Sincerely,
The RPSM Office (director@rpmusic.org)

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.
