Regent Park School of Music

Providing seriously fun affordable music lessons for Toronto youth.


It is our belief that kids living in high-risk neighbourhoods have the same love and passion for music as kids anywhere.

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. This year, we are set to give 2,000 young people aged 3-18 a music education at our hub in Daniels Spectrum in Regent Park and 8 other high-priority areas across Toronto.

Our students have access to music, teachers, and a wide array of instruments and programs tailored to their interests and abilities to give them a creative outlet that will help them flourish and reach their full potential.
We are most grateful to many individuals, foundations and corporations for their commitment to our students.

If you’d like to learn more about RPSM, arrange a tour, hear some of our students in action and discover how you might help too, please don’t hesitate to contact:
