ORMTA Hamilton/Halton Branch Celebrates:

CANADA MUSIC WEEK

Canada Music Week was established in 1960 to celebrate and promote Canadian music while introducing “contemporary music to young Canadians and stimulate a keener appreciation and understanding of this music; and to encourage music educators to widen their knowledge and experience of Canadian works” (Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Associations).

Help us celebrate ‘Canada Music Week’ this November with our CMW Student Recital, and by following us on Facebook and Instagram for exciting CMW content from Sunday November 21st to Saturday November 27th, 2021.

What Are People Saying?

  • Through workshops, student recitals, competitions and conventions, ORMTA has helped expand my knowledge as a teacher and allowed my students to grow and learn in a safe environment. I have forged lasting friendships and have received lots of support and encouragement in my teaching career.

  • ORMTA has offered many wonderful opportunities that I definitely wouldn't have gotten otherwise like scholarships, masterclasses and other events. One of my favourite projects was the composition competition where we got to submit a composition to an adjudicator. It was amazing to receive personal feedback from a professional composer.

  • With the support of ORMTA and outstanding instruction from registered teachers, our teenage children are blossoming into life-long musicians and confident young adults.
