We understand that everyone has unique learning needs. That’s why all of our teachers work hard to tailor their lessons to the age, skill, and learning style of every student that comes through our doors. We choose from a range of programs, and adapt to you and your goals.
We’ve got even more great news for you! While we would love to see you really sink your learning into one instrument you will love, many of our instructors teach multiple instruments, and we have a wide-range of make-up classes that you can drop-in on for every instrument. This means if you are feeling drawn to a new instrument, you’re welcome to try a few others at any time! Since we have over 40 of the best music teachers between in the GTA, you have even more opportunity to try all of the instruments we teach here including: piano, voice, guitar and drums. Some of our teachers even teach ukelele, bass, mandolin, trumpet, and more! Not sure if we teach an instrument? Just ask!
Music lessons at our academy are all private and are usually 30 mins each, which most find is just enough time to learn lots of new concepts and thing to practice on without getting overwhelmed or losing focus. However, more serious students may come twice weekly, or for hour-long lessons. We also feature lots of group make-up classes on rotation every weekend for every instrument and each group, so you can catch up on any missed lessons, and meet new friends, or try new instruments! Really want to grow as a musician? Most of our students choose to participate in our free performances for all levels and ages that we do twice a year (along with walking the red carpet!). Our performances provide the perfect goal to work towards through their lessons. Students find that having a performance goal helps to keep them on track andfocusedd during the lessons and their at-home practice.
Both sport and music programs offer many benefits that prepare children for success. In fact, both sports and music engagement provide many of the same benefits including learning and appreciating teamwork, learning discipline, learning to focus on one goal, and improving physical skills like coordination and balance. While sports may provide additional physical benefits including exercise and providing a physical outlet for energy, music provides creative and expressive outlets similar to, but different than in sports. Because sports and music provide similar benefits, as long as you engage in one or the other, that’s all that really matters. Analyses have found a child typically maintains their orientation to one or the other as they age.
One of the greatest lessons one can take away from drumming is understanding the concept of time within the musical framework. It teaches us discipline, to listen and more importantly it teaches responsibility. Drums are a very beautiful yet powerful instrument. Like a lion, who commands the African savanna with its fierce claws, but when retracted becomes the most calm and majestic creature. It takes a lot of will power to stay calm when playing the drums because of its massive sound. As a great philosopher once said, “with great power comes great responsibility” -Ben Parker.
Online drum lessons are a great way to channel your high energy and creativity! Playing the drums is one of the most exhilarating, and physically interactive instruments to learn. As such, many high energy students find the drums a great instrument to learn as they can funnel their energy into the playing of it. Some students find although there is more coordination required by both your hands and your feet, overall, you don’t need to learn pitch notation to get started, like other instruments.
Much research has been made recently in how music affects human development. It should come as no surprise that music has profoundly positive, and everlasting effects on the brain. Some of the many cognitive benefits of learning music includes big increases in short term memory capacity. Those with learning difficulties benefit greatly from musical experience. Music and language are closely tied together across all cultures so that musicians develop more sophisticated language resources.
More intriguingly, brainstems in children who took music lessons are much rebust in adulthood that those didn’t take music lessons! Research has also found that those participate in music make great team players at work! Those individuals with an appreciation for music were found to have lower stress and anxiety levels overall. Further, those who engage with music experience more emotional power and control over those emotions. More importantly, music therapy is found to be profoundly beneficial for all kinds of patients include PTSD patients, war veterans, epilepsy and dementia.
As a parent, you want to makes sure you nurture their development with an eye for the long term. It is the habit of practice that could matter more than the quality, or length of the practice itself. Since most experts agree that 30 minutes a day, every day, provides the strongest foundation and likelihood for becoming a lifetime musician, by getting yourself to the habit of practice, you can set yourself easily to achieve that goal! You can always break that 30 minutes practice time into multiple sessions, to make it easier and to avoid fatigue and burnout. The best way to practice is to focus intently on different sections of music, without over practicing, or under practicing, on just one section.

Benefits Of Singing
One study found that group singing lowers stress, relieves anxiety, and elevates endorphins. Group singing has also been found to build a sense of community and shared endeavours.
Through this neurochemistry of music study, singing was found to provide substantial benefits like decreased levels of stress, increased sense of community, and stimulates the release of dopamine which in term creates lower rates of addiction.
This study found that singing helps to increase the use of expressive language, improved cardiovascular function, and improved emotional regulation.
