Call for $10,000 grant applications open

Music teachers in Canada sing the praises of MusiCan

TORONTO, April 29 - Today, MusiCan celebrates a recent survey that proves with a
fistful of money and a lot of heart, significant growth in music education is
possible. The survey reported that recipient school students have been given the
ability to explore different genres of music, seen the creation of new musical
ensembles and many recipient schools have indicated an increased number of public
performances since being awarded a grant. MusiCan, the charitable arm of the
Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), plans to continue its
mission to elevate music education in Canadian schools, and is now accepting
applications for 2008-2009 Band Aid grants. Schools will find more information on
application criteria, including downloadable Application Forms for Band Aid grants

Applications will be accepted from May 1 - August 1, 2008.
The Band Aid musical instrument grants provide Canadian public schools - elementary,
secondary and separate - $10,000 towards the purchase of new musical instruments.
Past grant recipients continue to report positive effects of the increased inventory
size and quality of musical instruments available at their schools,
and an increased time spent on instruction instead of instrument repair.
