VCM and Telus Foundation bring Music Technology
to George Jay Elementary School
Made possible by a generous grant from Telus Foundation, the VCM is now able to bring new innovative music education programs that use cutting edge music technology to classes anywhere. Music education in all public schools can benefit greatly from this technological boost and the VCM is working diligently to enable this with its music tech lab program. Today, VCM is helping schools with a pilot lab program running now at George Jay Elementary School in Victoria, BC. It’s a weekly class that helps students learn about and create music using interactive music software.
This is what Terri Smith (Vice-Principal & Teacher) and Leslie Lee (Principal) had to say about the power of music and their new program.
