Social Development Through Music Education
Sistema Toronto’s free after-school program delivers ten hours of intensive musical instruction per week throughout the school year. Our children make music together in orchestras, choirs and percussion ensembles. Sistema is a social program first and foremost. We use music ensembles as a model to teachstudents their role in the success of a team.
By working toward a common goal, our students learn about cooperation, mutual support, empathy, self-respect, perseverance, and resilience.
"It’s easier to talk to my kids now, they are more open. There is joy in the house, there is peace in the house!” - Sistema Toronto parent
