The Sarah McLachlan School of Music provides high quality music lessons in conjunction with long term supportive mentorship from local teaching artists for at-risk and underserved children and youth in Vancouver, Surrey and Edmonton. The School of Music is a registered charity providing after-school music programming at no cost to over 1,000 students. The School teaches not only music, but also a broad range of life skills. Students grow musically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. They develop self-esteem, resilience, the ability to act responsibly and independently and learn the importance of being active, engaged community members.
Our commitment to our donors is to ensure that every dollar raised supports the program. Since the School was founded, Sarah McLachlan has covered 100% of the administrative costs through her Foundation, so that all funds raised go directly to our students’ education - lessons and materials, in-class instruments, access to the instrument loan program, healthy snack program and transportation program.
We ask you to join our community, to help us provide innovative, adaptable music education to the students who are currently with us and for future students who would benefit from our after-school music program.
We know that our efforts are made possible because of the support we receive from our donors and we thank you for believing in our mission.
