For the past eight years we have welcomed beginner students, from the very young to the mature individual looking to make music on their terms.  We assist students wishing to pursue the Royal Conservatory of Music Curriculum from pre Grade I thru ARCT; preparing for University Auditions; wanting to improve on their Scholastic Music Studies: and we also offer a more relaxed “Popular Music” instruction suited to the individual’s goal.

The studios strives to leverage each student’s strengths, working with them to improve on their technique & performance.   We encourage the student to become his/her own teacher, learning to gain a perspective of their performance, whilst teaching them to become good listeners and improvisers.   Various studies have proven that music is a prime component in an individual’s growth.   We stress technical expertise and the proper physical approach to the instrument towards ensuring a stress free and accelerated learning experience.
