Forte School of Music is an incredible supporter of CWAVS! They offer music lessons in piano, singing, ukulele, music theory, guitar, composing, and choir. Forte School of Music strives to instill the love of music to students of all levels and ages including children and adults. As classically trained musicians and teachers, they provide a technically sound musical foundation for every student, so they have the ability to explore many genres. Forte School of Music feels passionately about staying connected to the musical community and provides students with many opportunities to get involved and perform outside of their regular lesson time.

The Garden House Foundation fund (GHFF) was formed in September 2008 under the umbrella of the Victoria Foundation by Jim and Jackie Barker. The primary goals of the GHFF are to provide support to families in crisis and animals in need in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.
