Burnaby North Secondary Music: We Recommend…

Even beyond our classrooms, the Burnaby North Secondary Music program wants you to achieve success in music. We believe music education enriches all students’ experiences, regardless if they want to pursue music beyond secondary education.

Here are some additional links and resources. We thought they would appeal to you. These organizations are in no way connected to us and they are not paying to be “advertised” here. They are here because we genuinely believed they can be of use to you.

We invite you to ask us for more resources. We also encourage you to search for more opportunities yourself.
