The mission of the Heart of the City Piano program (HCPP) is simple: make music accessible to every child.
The study of music is costly and often inaccessible to youth who are economically disadvantaged. We strive to give these children the opportunity to discover music by providing them with piano lessons given at their school by volunteers.
Presently, the Ottawa branch of the program includes 5 schools from the public school board system and a collaboration with
The Ottawa Hospital (TOH).
HCPP not only teaches the students an instrument,
it teaches them a means of self-expression, communication and instills self-confidence.
We need your help to succeed!
