 Welcome to the Eastwood Collegiate Institute Department of Music!

Home of the LIONS!


Musical excellence has been a tradition at Eastwood C.I. since it opened in 1956. Today, Eastwood continues with that tradition; it is a unique, vibrant place for students to grow as musicians, artists, and people. We strive to help our students develop a professional and responsible attitude towards performance, whether as a soloist or as part of a larger group.  We perform regularly at school events, festivals, competitions, and within our community. We welcome alumni, parents, students, and friends to our Eastwood Music Department!
