Who We Are

MusiCounts is Canada’s music education charity and is affiliated with CARAS and the JUNO Awards.

Our Mission

MusiCounts celebrates musical excellence and puts musical instruments into the hands of kids who need them the most.

Our Vision

That all children and youth in Canada have access to music education.



Why MusiCounts?

  • Music education in Canada is endangered, and students are missing out on the value of learning and creating music.
  • Music education makes students smarter and helps develop positive self-esteem and communication skills.
  • Music also has a strong emotional impact on youth - music gives kids a way to sort out their emotions and express their feelings.
  • Long term impact: the instruments we supply last over 20 years. We estimate that well over 800,000 children have known the joy of music as a result of one of our programs or donations.
