Join the SoM Student Scholarship Circle

The Sarah McLachlan School of Music (SoM) performs groundbreaking work in arts education and community building, enriching the lives of hundreds of at-risk and underserved children and youth each year. Funded entirely through private donations, SoM needs your help to continue expanding its program into communities where opportunities do not otherwise exist for young people to develop creatively, to positively connect with their peers, and to gain the self-confidence they need to thrive in all areas of school and life. In fact, Sarah McLachlan's decision to open SoM was based on her own experience as an insecure and unpopular child who “found her voice” through music programs at public school. Sadly, these days, music lessons are for those who can afford them - with the exception of SoM students who receive top-calibre instruction at no cost thanks to the generous support of people like you.

Help a Young Person Find Their Voice...

A contribution of $2,880, or $240 per month, provides one SoM student with a year of music education.
