On September 11, 2014 The Royal Conservatory of Music announced a gift of $2.8 million from Karen and Michael Vukets. In honour of this visionary gift The Karen and Michael Vukets Public School Teacher Development Program has been named.

An initiative of Learning Through the Arts®, The Royal Conservatory's acclaimed arts-based education program, The Karen and Michael Vukets Public School Teacher Development Program will provide a comprehensive music education program for generalist teachers. At a time when non-specialist teachers are expected to teach music, this program will provide them with tools to engage students by using music-based approaches to enhance core subjects such as math, science, and language arts, enabling them to engage all students and learner types, ensuring positive learning experiences for all students.
