The Sarah McLachlan School of Music provides music education to underserved and at-risk youth at no cost. The school is dedicated to helping young people build community and find their voice.
“When I was growing up, we had music in our schools. It was a given. These days many of these programs are not available. I don’t know what I would have done without music in my life when I was growing up. I was unpopular and picked on, but for me, music was my refuge and solace – the one thing I knew I was good at; it fed me and kept me going.”
- Sarah McLachlan
“SOM offers so much more than music lessons to students, it gives us an opportunity to find our light, our potential. SOM is a place of hope and possibilities. Where students of all ages can come together and share a common passion.”
- Vivian, Voice graduate of SoM
