Sharing our Music Within our Community
For over 30 years MRMTA has supported inner city music programs through its annual “Kids Helping Kids” Musicthon fundraiser, with $216,181 donated to date. Musicthon 2021 adapted to a new format which culminated with student performances in a YouTube video premiere on February 7th. The essence of Musicthon remained unchanged: students register, collect donation pledges and share a musical performance.
Here at Piano Expressions with Corey, we 100% support the idea of kids helping kids. Each year, students participate in this recital and fundraising event organized by the Manitoba Registered Music Teacher's Association to help make music programs accessible for kids in need.
In January 2021, over 50 of our students raised $2,358.00 for the program.
What is Musicthon?
Musicthon funds support programs within inner city and lower income areas of Winnipeg, in daycare as well as child/caregiver drop-in settings. They are targeted at families who often do not have the funds to access early childhood music programs, particularly of this calibre.
Tiny Tunes music programs are run in seven daycares and currently reach approximately 300 children weekly. Programming was able to resume in June after the spring shutdown, with new safety measures implemented including smaller group sizes.
Now Accepting Students
Our Piano Expressions with Corey studio is full for the 2021-2022 Session, and we will now be accepting students for the 2022-2023 Waiting List.
