Hammer Band

Founded in 2007 by world-renowned Canadian violinist Moshe Hammer, The Hammer Band provides free violins to 350 students in 18 Toronto public schools.  Through fun-filled music lessons, students develop respect for self and others, and learn the value of teamwork and personal responsibility.  In this way, The Hammer Band program aims to prevent youth gang violence, creating opportunities for young people to feel engaged at school and in their communities.
