Sudbury Youth Music Program


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.
