MusiCounts, Canada's music education charity, believes music can transform the lives of young people. That's why we make music education inclusive, sustainable, and accessible for youth across Canada by providing musical instruments, equipment, and resources.
Music education has a ripple effect. Youth are not only exposed to the unending joys of music; they also experience the benefits across all areas of their lives. Confidence. Emotional and mental wellbeing. Identity. Connection and communication.Learn More

NEW - KANATA: Twin Flames Special Edition
This new addition to the MusiCounts Learn Kanata: Contemporary Indigenous Artists and Their Music resource explores the music of Ottawa-based duo, the Twin Flames. This resource, authored by Indigenous music education specialist Sherryl Sewepagaham, offers elementary and secondary educators three comprehensive activities through which they can engage their students in discussion, research, critical inquiry, and performance of the Twin Flames’ powerful music. Through exploring topics including mental health, language preservation, and Inuit culture, the activities in this resource serve as a unique opportunity for educators to bring reconciliation into the classroom.
