I help run the Heart of the City Music Program (HCMP), a program designed to connect volunteer piano teachers to young children who can’t afford to take piano lessons. The program is run out of the Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre and I have volunteered both as a Piano Teacher and now as the Saturday Program Coordinator. It is a truly rewarding experience to help spread my passion for music to those who want, but otherwise can’t afford, such opportunities. My involvement in this program has also managed to bring music back into my life, after having to give up prior musical activities like band due to my academics. By making a difference in each of our student’s lives through teaching piano, I believe that we are making Canada a better place, one child at a time.
