The "Music for Children" project is an initiative of Maestro Kent Nagano, developed by the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, in partnership with the Université de Montréal and the Commission scolaire de Pointe-de-I'Île. The project works with preschool children from underprivileged backgrounds. Maestro Nagano recognized the contribution of occupational therapy in exploring the contribution of children's artistic and musical activity to their development. The project adopts an occupational approach that focuses on participation, transition or occupational justice outside the health care system. "The goal is to foster the development of individuals who want to contribute to society, whatever path they choose."
