What people say

In 2000, Steve Sainas from Terry Fox Secondary School in BC developed a largely self-funded project, the Rock School and Recording Arts Program that welcomed at-risk youth, the severely learning disabled, the physically disabled and the gifted. The program was so successful that students began transferring to Terry Fox Secondary in order to participate.
MusiCounts provided The Legacy Children’s Foundation  with musical instruments in 2014. The LCF works with schools across the city to identify youth that are at risk of drugs, gang activity, or dropping out for various reasons.
Kevin Gibson, a police officer in one of Winnipeg’s roughest neighbourhoods, came to a point in 2011 where he was frustrated with picking up the same kids for petty crime week after week. Kevin renovated the space himself and created a music studio, Status 4 Inc. The crime rate in the area dropped by 80% since the opening.
In Kitigan Zibi, in Maniwaki Quebec, the music program was instituted as a truancy and drop out deterrent. Since receiving the instruments, not only have graduation rates gone up but several students who had previously dropped out returned to participate in the program and complete their education.
