The Music Room

The Meaghan Zaremba Music Room operates from Tisho’s Music Academy and is focused on providing music lessons to those who struggle with their own life challenges. To date, the Meaghan Zaremba Music Room supports over 900 individuals annually and partners with three community organizations:

  • SNAPSO (Special Needs Adult Program Services Organization)
  • BCCL (Brampton Caledon Wellness Centre)
  • VITA Community Living

The Meaghan Zaremba Music Room is a resource for those with mental and physical challenges to pursue their passion of music leading to a more confident and creative individual through personal and corporate donations.

The Meaghan Zaremba Music Room is used every Tuesday from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. by BCCL, and every Friday from 11 a.m – 12 p.m. by VITA Community Living

In 2018, the Meaghan Zaremba Music Room became a not-for-profit corporation and is currently in the process of becoming a charitable entity.

Meaghan’s Story

Born on July 20th 1981, Meaghan Marvel Claire Zaremba spent the next five years of her life like every other child. In September of 1986, Meaghan’s life was about to take a turn on the path to extraordinary.

In 1986, at the young age of 5, Meaghan was involved in a serious car crash. Meaghan sustained severe brain damage, along with various soft tissue and bone injuries.
The doctors suggested to Meaghan’s mother that she be taken off life support.

Even if she survived these injuries, they said she would never be able to speak or care for herself again. With a mother’s intuition, Danielle refused.

After countless surgeries - 16 brain surgeries, numerous close calls, and more than 20 years of dealing with seizures, Meaghan’s spirit stayed true and strong. Life has taken Meaghan on this unexpected journey, but she has endured and blossomed into an amazing young woman.

Meaghan’s story is one of inspiration, hope and beating all odds. Meaghan has been blessed with support and love, and in return, she wants to give back to the community that supported her.

At the Meaghan Zaremba Music Room, those with challenges are free to explore music in a safe, encouraging and wonderfully supportive environment.

Government funding is extremely limited for individuals with challenges, particularly those over 18 years old, so private funding is an integral part of our sustainability.

Ideally, we would like committed, multi-annual donors but are also extremely grateful for any amount that you, your organization or company could allow.
