Founded in 1999, RPSM provides high quality, affordable music education to youth-in-need in Regent Park and other high priority areas in the City of Toronto.
We believe that music is a life-changing experience. There are many social and academic benefits to children having access to quality music education: our students learn creativity, collaboration, and are empowered by their success.
RPSM is currently in the second year of a five-year strategic plan that aims to reach 3000 youth-in-need in Toronto (1100 of which will be from Regent Park) by the end of 2015. We are expanding our satellite programs into other lower income areas of Toronto and working to develop innovative programs which musically stimulate our children and provide healthy opportunities for positive peer influence and encouragement. In 2012, RPSM is moving to the new Regent Park Arts & Cultural Centre.
For more information, you can locate our strategic plan online at www.rpmusic.org.
