Piano ~ Guitar ~ Strings

Younger Students

To ensure that young children enjoy their chosen instrument and become enthusiastic about their lessons . . . we combine three things:

  1. the rudiments of early-childhood music pedagogies (like Orff Shulwerk, the Kodaly Method and Dalcroze Eurythmics) – these are all the movement games and songs that children love
  2. an introduction to the instrument
  3. theory, notation and technique

This way, in their initial years of learning a chosen instrument, children enjoy teaching that is attuned to their innate inquisitiveness, liveliness and sense of fun. (And when children participate willingly and enthusiastically, learning occurs!)

Older Students

As older children develop their skills, our Music Mastery courses embrace traditional teaching approaches, such as preparation for the Royal Conservatory of Music examinations or auditions to specialized arts-based schools.

Our focus is building the fundamentals while ensuring that your child plays music that strikes a chord with them. And in our year-end concert, our students share this music with their family and friends.
