Community Music Schools of Toronto
Expanding from Regent Park School of Music, we’ve changed over to our new identity as Community Music Schools of Toronto. This new name acts as an umbrella, better connecting and reflecting all of our sites, celebrating our history in Regent Park and Jane Finch and looking to reach even more communities in the future.
While the name may have changed, the goal has always remained the same: to help kids thrive through music. Thank you, as always, for supporting our students as we do our very best to provide them a safe, exciting learning environment.
SKETCH is a community arts enterprise engaging diverse young people, ages 16-29, from across Canada, who live homeless or on the margins and navigate poverty to:
- experience the transformative power of the arts

We see a movement where young people are celebrated and engaged as culture makers, perception changers and collaborators in building creative communities.

The Remix Project
East Bay Front
The Remix Project is a multidisciplinary arts training organization dedicated to strengthening the creative community by supporting the next generation of industry leaders. Focused on each student’s personal and professional development, Remix was created to help level the playing field for talented young people who face barriers in pursuing careers in arts and entertainment.
We create safe and inclusive spaces for youth and emerging artists to express themselves in a positive way. Through our Edutainment methodology, we empower performance artists to create meaningful art rooted in self knowledge and self expression. We believe art has the power to transform the lives of many youth we often see lost to the system and its streets.
Our programs provide youth with platforms to perform, learn and develop leadership skills. Our model encourages youth to dive deep into their stories while using art as a cathartic practice to explore their vulnerability and create room to best deal with their mental health
We believe safe platforms encourage self-expression and self reflection. In many cases it is an opportunity for youth to experience the power of community healing through art and vulnerability.
Long Winter was created in the fall of 2012 as an initiative of the Toronto punk band Fucked Up: an all-ages, pay-what-you-can seasonal event series that would transcend the typical concert experience. A dense, eclectic mix of local musicians, visual/performance/media/installation artists, writers, and dancers would all have a chance to exhibit and perform their works alongside one another, creating a unique environment for both audience and participants.
Presenting a roster of jam-packed events from November through March each year, Long Winter cultivates an unprecedented cross-section of Toronto music communities, with a focus on DIY/underground/emerging scenes. We are committed to a presentation of diverse, cutting-edge music and art that is inclusive and exciting, with as few barriers to access as possible. Live acts from a range of genres are programmed back-to-back on multiple stages, so that audiences and subcultures are interwoven throughout the building, and emerging artists appear alongside more established names.

Since the beginning, our mandate to foster innovation and experimentation in music has remained constant, and today, we continue to redefine the possibilities for concert music.

By connecting the world with Canadian music and the talented artists who create it, we maintain an extensive archive of scores and works by Canadian composers accessible online and through our lending library as well as a publishing and repertoire consultation service. The award-winning Centrediscs label offers high quality/professional commercial and archival recordings.
We are a valuable cultural resource, representing a growing community of over 900 professional Canadian Composers by showcasing their music through our website and social media, at conferences worldwide and educational workshops.
