REGISTER YOUR CELEBRATION FOR MUSIC MONDAY 2019

Celebrate with hundreds of thousands of children, youth, students, teachers, parents and community members from coast to coast to coast! Plan an event at your school, community centre, public park, or local business to recognize the importance of music in your part of Canada.

Why register?

Why does it matter?
