Artist Profile

Sudbury Youth Rocks

Sudbury, Ontario

The Sudbury Youth Rocks Program is run by a group of volunteers dedicated to assisting young people by using their experience as musicians to teach not only music, but life skills, self-esteem, positive peer pressure and community service. What makes the SYRP different from other music programs is that there is no charge to the participants. Each youth gets to try out a variety of instruments until they find one they are comfortable with. The youth can play 4 different instruments for 4 different songs if they want.  The youth get to choose the songs that they like and perform them in their own style.



Our mission is to help young people in Sudbury achieve their full potential in both music and life. By introducing them to their potential in music they receive a clear message that they are capable of anything if they work hard enough.  A lesson that will support them as they become productive members of society.

With the help of the volunteers, the youth learn all aspects of music including equipment care and maintenance, sound engineering, performance techniques, composition, recording, event management and peer tutoring.

By working with the community they learn about building community partnerships, management and they are introduced to industry leaders and become part of a broader social community.
