TSP in the Community - October 2014

Thorek/Scott and Partners is a proud sponsor of The Hammer Band, a home-grown Canadian music program to foster integration and community. 

The Hammer Band is hosting their annual cocktail reception this Thursday,
event details are below.  
Check out thehammerband.com for more information about this wonderful charity.


The Hammer Band: 

World-renowned Canadian violinist Moshe Hammer founded The Hammer Band in 2007.  His vision:  to prevent violence in all its forms – from school bullying to gangs with guns.  How?  Offer children music education that promotes self-esteem, empathy and tolerance.  Children who learn to play an instrument and perform together learn important life skills such as self-discipline, teamwork and resilience.  Studies show that music education has many benefits:  improved academic performance, lower drop-out rates and stronger communities.

More than 1,500 students have already participated in The Hammer Band.  Today, the program is available in 26 Toronto public schools, and growing!  Teachers, principals and parents see the benefits every day.  Our Hammer Band kids are happier, more engaged with school and with each other, and are proud of their accomplishments.  It is little wonder that families and communities come together to support their children’s music-making, and that we have a school waiting-list.
