East End Arts is proud to continue our partnership with The Music Project (TMP). This non-profit music school provides access to music lessons for kids in grades K-12 in Toronto’s east end. With a focus on collaborative music-making and performance experiences, TMP offers lessons in piano, guitar, ukulele, percussion, music foundations and choir.
Miranda Snyder is TMP’s executive director, working alongside artistic director David Chan overseeing a diverse program, with private, group, and ensemble opportunities. Along with a passionate team of professional musicians and educators, their vision explains:
“The Music Project exists to give kids in Toronto’s East End the opportunity to express, create, and have fun making music.”
