Vanier launches Vanier College Music School to train young musicians

Vanier College has announced the launch of the Vanier College Music School, which will provide musical training to elementary and secondary school students in Montreal. The after-hours school aims to fill the gap left by the disappearance of school bands and music classes so that students can develop their musical talent. The school will offer reasonably priced lessons, with access to scholarships through the newly-created Sheldon Sazant Memorial Fund. “With music programming reduced due to limited funds at public schools, there is a big gap as many potentially talented young musicians are being lost in the community,” said Alena Perout, Dean of Faculty of Social Science, Commerce, Arts, Letters and Music at Vanier. “Vanier College has decided to respond to this need.” Vanier Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
