Are you a teacher interested in learning more about educational services and resources?

I have always been focused on contributing to music education and I wanted to give back to the music programs that helped
get me started.  In 2016, I sat down with my colleague, Klaus Anselm, and we discussed how we could contribute to today's music education programs.  This led to us co-foundeding the music-education organization The Bandaids, which focuses on delivering workshops, clinics, private lesson programs and interactive educational-performances to elementary and secondary students throughout southern Ontario. 

In 2020, The Bandaids partnered with Clovertone Music (a Canadian-based music publishing company) to join the initiative              Musicians Helping Music Teachers.  Through leveraging combined resources, skillsets, and contacts in the music industry                           and music education scenes, MHMT has created a comprehensive program of virtual/online services and resources for                        schools and music teachers while enduring the era of Covid-19 we are in.
