The Aid-Brigade Music Program in honour of Aiden Fotherby-Verk

Some people don’t need a whole lot of time here on earth to make their mark, to change their community for the better and leave a lasting impact. Aiden Fotherby-Verk was one of those special souls who made so much of the short amount of time he had. As a part of his lasting legacy, his family has generously donated to the Mississippi Mills Youth Centre to create the “Aid-Brigade Music Program” in Aiden’s honour. Aiden’s music program will be a permanent offering at the youth centre and provide variety of music programming and activities throughout the year.

Together with Aiden’s family, we have shaped the music program to embody the best of who Aiden was; his joyful love of music, his passion for learning new things, his incredible ability to face challenges and grow from them, and his wicked sense of humour and fun. We are honoured to be keeping his memory and his spirit alive in a way that will have meaning and impact in the lives of so many other local kids.

The Aid-Brigade Music Program includes:
• assorted music lessons throughout the year, including ukulele, piano, drums and more
• digital music making with fun software and apps
• a karaoke machine with fun accessories for a more “wild and free” exploration of music
• Song and lyrics writing workshops
• Youth performances and talent showcases

Music plays an essential role in the healthy development of all children. The benefits range from building stronger cognitive skills in math and science, to stimulating their creativity, boosting self-esteem, nurturing connection with others and most importantly of all, it’s a whole lot of fun.

Please check our website www.mmyc.ca and Facebook regularly to see what exciting music programming we have currently and what else is coming up. We invite anyone in the community who has a love of music and wants to volunteer in the Aid-Brigade Music Program to contact us. We are also always accepting donations of musical instruments, songbooks and other music related items. We greatly appreciate monetary donations that we use towards this truly special program and all of our vital programming.
