Darren and Steve are both passionate about popular music education and making sure learners have access to the music they enjoy in schools. Steve and Darren met through their own individual publishing efforts and combined their forces to embark on a publishing journey together.
They both noticed a serious lack of Canadian content in this niche of the music education field. Plenty of American and British literature exists, but there exists almost nothing about the Canadian experience. They are out to fix that and they need your voice to help make it happen!
