Music in Canada

The first musical notes heard on the North American continent were probably produced by Aboriginal peoples. During colonization, immigrants of all origins shaped the musical trends of the country, still deeply marked by European movements.

Gradually, Canadian popular music begins to affirm itself, finding inspiration in the local ways of life, varying from region to region. Institutions were created to teach music to neophytes and contribute to training a growing number of musicians.

The arrival of radio broadcasting and the phonograph record provoked an upheaval in the field of the music and enabled a greater number of artists to become known.
