From The Minute A Child Is Taught An Instrument, He Is No Longer Poor

Introducing An Instrument For Every Child

The Hamilton Music Collective is pleased to announce that An Instrument for Every Child (AIFEC) has received $35,000 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) for the purchase of musical instruments for the 2013-14 school year. AIFEC is the successful Hamilton inner-city free music program for children in Grades 1 through 4. The AIFEC program is now in six Hamilton schools: Holy Name of Jesus, Dr. J. Edgar Davey, Memorial, Prince of Wales, Cathy Wever, and Hess Street School.


"Music education can help spark a child's imagination or ignite a lifetime of passion. When you provide a child with new worlds to explore and challenges to tackle, the possibilities are endless. Music education should not be a privilege for a lucky few, it should be a part of every child's world of possibility." - Hillary Rodham Clinton
