Saint James Music Academy

Saint James Music Academy is a free afterschool program that teaches classical music to children and youth who live in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside (DTES), most of whom live in low-income families. The DTES is a vibrant community and yet also struggles with significant social problems, including high unemployment, poor living conditions, crime, and substance abuse. Children who are exposed to these conditions are vulnerable to these social realities. We believe it is crucial that the needs of these children and youth be met with creative and new possibilities.
