Lotus Centre is a not-for-profit organization which was founded to meet a community need for specialized music education. We believe that every child has a right to appropriate education in any endeavour they choose to pursue. This means working with a teacher who understands the nature of the student's disability and constantly strives to meet the student's needs, while creating a nurturing and fun environment. We also believe that music education can provide a means of communication, can improve function and performance in non-musical areas, and can provide an emotional outlet for all people. This is especially valuable for students with special challenges. Our mission is to provide individually designed music education programs to allow students to reach their full potential.
