The federal government has come through with a $7.5 million grant for the Royal Conservatory’s unique music education program.
Teaming up with Carnegie Hall the Conservatory signed a deal in 2011 to produce a training program that could be introduced across the U.S.
The funding announcement by federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt will help deliver the core program in the U.S. and strengthen music education in 300 Canadian communities.
It will also give the Conservatory the lift it needs to seek out other international markets.
The institution has trained legions of musicians for more than 125 years.
