Hamilton is a music town and always has been. The Hamilton Music Institute was established in 1888 and history shows that private colleges such as the Wesleyan Ladies College were teaching music before that.

Over the years, many exceptional and talented musicians have hailed from Hamilton including Ian Thomas, Jackie Washington, Tom Wilson, Boris Brott and so many more.
