Our Impact

Hope, Music & Happiness
Many of our students who try one of our programs return year after year. MusiCan has given some students the courage to pursue their musical careers, while others just enjoy collaborating with their peers outside the classroom. No matter the situation, children always leave with a smile.

MusiCan students talk about their experiences

“I played drums since I was two. My uncle inspired me to play, and I love listening to Louis Armstrong and Miles Davis. I love making my own beats on the drums!”
