Kiwanis Luncheon - Heart of the City Piano Program

Fairmont Chateau Laurier, Laurier Room

The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa is proud of its partnership and support of the Heart of the City Piano Program, and will present a few of the volunteer teachers at our luncheon.

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 provide the opportunity to discover music through piano lessons to these children, 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.

HCPP not only teaches the students an instrument, it teaches them a means of self-expression, communication and instils self-confidence.
