We love music.  We love how it speaks to the soul, we love how it is universal and we love how it brings communities together.  That's the idea behind the Freedom Community Centre School of Music.  We want our community to be able to learn about and experience music and do it while building relationships with our neighbours.  Sounds like fun, right?

Our School of Music is led by volunteers here at Freedom, that's why our classes are so inexpensive.  We just want to cover our costs and allow as many people as possible to have access to music lessons.

And if you're reading this because you're interested in joining us for a class, great! Anyone born in 2011 and older is welcome to join us. We hope to meet you soon!
