Introducing An Instrument For Every Child
The Hamilton Music Collective is pleased to announce that An Instrument for Every Child (AIFEC) has received $35,000 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) for the purchase of musical instruments for the 2013-14 school year. AIFEC is the successful Hamilton inner-city free music program for children in Grades 1 through 4. The AIFEC program is now in six Hamilton schools: Holy Name of Jesus, Dr. J. Edgar Davey, Memorial, Prince of Wales, Cathy Wever, and Hess Street School.
“Music education can help spark a child’s imagination or ignite a lifetime of passion. When you provide a child with new worlds to explore and challenges to tackle, the possibilities are endless. Music education should not be a privilege for a lucky few, it should be a part of every child’s world of possibility.” – Hillary Rodham Clinton
