Founding Story

What's in a name?

The Bluest Eye, Toni Morrison, explores growing up in a world that is not built for the historically underrepresented & ignored children. 

Morrison said herself that she wrote it because she wanted to read it. She didn’t see herself or her experiences in any literature at the time. She saw a gap and decided to fill it. 

 

This is exactly what MMP is trying to do. We see a gap in our industry, and we are working to fill it!

As graduates of Canada's leading post-secondary music programs, we want to offer a practical, holistic solution to some of the experiences and issues we faced at Canada's leading musical institutions.

If Toronto is one of the most cosmopolitan and multicultural cities in North America we were left wondering why is that the case?

Music institutions

are not doing enough.
