"Christmas is a difficult time for many both economically and emotionally and I hope this gift of music can help in some small way. My holiday wish is that we can all find the good in everyone and in every situation and be kind to each other. I wish you all a very happy, peaceful holiday filled with love, laughter and light."
If you can afford a $1 or $5 contribution to our school it would warm my heart as we continue to provide free music lessons to at-risk youth. Happy Holidays!
“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 McLachalan
When Sarah first envisioned a free music school for kids, she knew that in order for her vision to thrive, she would have to think outside the box. Our model is based on the combination of group and private lessons which allows us to appeal to diverse learning styles and to build a community. The Sarah McLachlan School of Music reaches hundreds of young people every year, providing them with the space and the tools they need to express themselves. The school offers them a secure, inspiring place to learn, practice and ultimately connect with others and with themselves. Learn more here
