Music for Life
Music for Life promotes the integration of music into everyday family life through baby/toddler classes, private lessons, and
family-friendly recordings and performances.
Thoughts about art and community:
People have historically been communal beings, though these days we find it possible to slip into patterns of solidarity, even when we’re surrounded by people. Getting out and involved in our neighbourhoods provides vital human interaction, support, and friendship. Music has a wonderful way of bringing people together: it can enliven any stroll down the street, bring together voices of people living and working near one another, and help young ones learn about what they encounter on a daily basis. We’ve grown shy, as a society, about singing and being spontaneous with music making, but at one time these were central activities at neighbourhood get-togethers. Making and enjoying music together is a fantastic way to bond, to share experiences, and to strengthen our neighbourly ties. Let’s do it more!
