The Montréal Heart of the City Piano Program (MHCPP) is a chapter of the national organization Heart of the City Piano Program –  the first chapter was founded in Saskatchewan in 1995. The Montréal chapter was founded by Bettina Quintoro in November 2007 and since has offered tuition-free piano lessons to at-risk children at English and French inner-city elementary schools in Montreal. Led by a team of dedicated volunteers through the Student Society of McGill University, the Montréal chapter has grown in the past year to include a total of four schools: Saint Gabriel, Edward Murphy, Champlain, and La Mennais.
