Funds will cover the CDs, songbooks, classroom materials, instruments, and any additional costs needed to run for a full school year. We are so excited to continue our programming through Burnaby Family Life. They provide invaluable services to local families and children in need in our community.

This past Monday I was at the Burnaby South Secondary childcare center for our weekly music class. When I walked in I noticed a big parent info poster with photos from our music classes and an article on the benefits of making music. I was so happy to see this! Parents will get to see what their children have been doing in music class and learn more about the benefits of music making. A big thank you to the staff for taking time out of their busy schedules to create this! This made my day!
On January 27th we met with the staff and volunteers of Mosaic and Burnaby Family Life at Brentwood Mall. Mosaic was hosting a multi-cultural event to draw awareness to the support services they offer for newcomers to Canada.
We were happy to be involved by sharing music and movement activities with the young children and adults at the event.
What a great time…the energy was amazing! There are few activities that can instantly connect strangers, but music is one of them! Parents, grandparents, and children gathered near the play center and we sang and danced away the afternoon. Who knew you could have so much fun making music at the mall!
Thank you again to Mosaic for hosting this successful event.
