Shawn Hook – MusiCounts Artist of the Month

JUNO nominated artist Shawn Hook said, “I’m a good example of someone who had a great music education, but now all these kids who grew up where I grew up don’t have the opportunity to go to school and experience what I had. MusiCounts is helping many schools sustain their music programs, so MusiCounts really does count.” We couldn’t agree more, and we’re delighted to recognize Shawn as the MusiCounts Artist of the Month for his longtime support of MusiCounts and music education!

In 2017, Shawn took to the JUNO Awards stage with MusiCounts TD Community Music Program recipient group, BC Youth Chinese Orchestra to highlight the importance of music education and demonstrate the impact of new MusiCounts instruments. Plus, since Shawn knows firsthand the possibilities that music education can bring, he also generously donated to MusiCounts to support school and community music programs with instrument grants.
