Heart of the City Piano Program
The mission of the Heart of the City Piano Program (HCPP) is simple: Make music accessible to every child.
We are a volunteer-based organization that provides piano lessons for inner-city children. Our volunteers are enthusiastic, community-oriented young adults and seniors who serve as excellent role models for the students. The study of music is costly and often inaccessible to youth who are economically disadvantaged. We strive to provide these children with the opportunity to discover music through piano lessons given at their school by volunteers! Presently, the Ottawa branch of the program includes six schools from the public school board system.
HCPP not only teaches the students an instrument, but it also teaches them a means of self-expression, communication and instills self-confidence.
