MusiCounts, Canada’s music education charity associated with The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) is helping to keep music alive in schools across Canada. MusiCounts’ mission is to ensure that children in Canada, regardless of socio-economic circumstances and cultural background, have access to music programs through their schools. MusiCounts includes Band Aid musical instrument grants, the MusiCounts Teacher of the Year Award, Scholarships and other music education initiatives. The grants impact thousands of young Canadians and support diverse music programs that include concert and jazz bands to drum and guitar ensembles from Pre K to Grade 12 in elementary, junior high, and high schools in urban, rural, remote and First Nations communities from coast to coast. Since the Program’s establishment in 1997, over $6,000,000 will have been awarded impacting 286 post secondary music program graduates and an estimated 520,000 students, their schools and communities, from coast to coast. MusiCounts will have also honoured 8 extraordinary music teachers through the MusiCounts Teacher of the Year Award.
