Giving a Child the Gift of Music

Tafelmusik’s education concerts have introduced live baroque and classical music for free to many children. We work directly with schools from different communities across the GTA, who lack access to enhanced musical education programs, to ensure that all children can explore the magic of music in an engaging and interactive way. With the recent financial cuts in the public school education system, these opportunities for children are more precious than ever.

Keiran Campbell, cello

When did you start playing the cello?

I started when I was eight years old, although I think I tried (unsuccessfully) to play a full-size cello that was almost twice my size when I was much younger than that.
