Due to COVID-19, our Fiddle Workshops are still not able to take place. We hope all of our students and friends continue to stay safe & healthy and we are hopeful to start our visits again during the 2021-2022 school year.
The 2020 Winter Fiddle Workshops were a success. Our instructors worked with 291 youth in five communities.

HELP US TRANSFORM COMMUNITIES THROUGH MUSIC
TUSARNAARNIQ SIVUMUT ASSOCIATION
MUSIC FOR THE FUTURE
To provide a safe environment in which youth can learn to play the fiddle, providing a positive outlet & fostering their individuality and musical growth.
Want to help? Not only can you donate to help fund our programs, you can also help by supporting our benefit concerts and other fundraising efforts.
Over the course of the 11 years that TSA has been supporting Nunavut Youth, we have been able to expand from visiting one community, to visiting 5-6 communities during each visit. We have gone from visiting Nunavut once per year and working with 20-25 students annually, to visiting three times and teaching fiddle to more than 300 students per year. Our program aims not only to provide Inuit youth with music instruction (especially in communities where music programs don't exist), as a positive, creative outlet, but our program continues to deliver valuable skills that translate into increased self-worth, joy, positive engagement with others, increased confidence and positive mental health.
1,199 individual youth participated in fiddle workshops (many returning year after year).

THE IMPACT OF MUSIC IN POND INLET
Thank you to RYOT and to David Darg & Bryn Mooser for traveling to Pond Inlet in 2014 to capture this video. We look forward to many more years to come and to being able to reach more youth in other communities across Nunavut.
