Elevato (an Italian term meaning “to uplift”) is a non-profit organization with the mission to make private music education more accessible for children in Newfoundland and Labrador. Music is a cornerstone of our cultural heritage. At Elevato, we believe that by making private music instruction more accessible to children, we are helping them to enjoy all the well-documented benefits of music. We know that we are assisting children in developing creative self-expression, self-respect, commitment, forming positive relationships with others, and helping them realize their potential and value as contributors to their culture and society. Elevato aims to provide financial assistance to qualifying families through an application process.
