The value of arts education for children has been well researched and documented.
It enhances children’s learning by developing motor, language and literacy abilities. It provides an alternative way of learning and a means of expression, serving to build bridges among different cultures and life experiences.
Unfortunately, the arts have been dramatically reduced in Hamilton schools due to budget constraints. Many families are unable to personally provide these opportunities for their children.
The Note-Able Music Fund fills that gap. It has been funded initially by gifts from two people who were motivated by their love of music and in recognition of the importance of music to their own development: Olive Poulton and Laurie Connon. Their hope is that this fund will inspire other like-minded individuals to respond similarly and help provide the gift of music to children in our community
