Our Music Lessons Are Great For Kids & Teens
We build confidence, and creativity in all ages! Our voice, piano & guitar program helps young musicians using the latest methods from specialized music teachers.
It's Tough Being A Parent!
We are here to make your life just a little bit easier. We have a deep passion for creativity and singing. Our curriculum has been used by Disney to train their singers as part of “VocalizeU”. Our program is able to help voices of any age, giving them the tools to explore their creativity in a safe environment with other kids.
All of our vocal coaches are trained in our method. We free up and strengthen voices to sing in the shower, sing in their school production, or kick off their singing career early through focussed singing lessons.
We’re proud to say that Singer’s Edge kids feel more supported, more settled in themselves, and more expressive than others who don’t explore their passion in music.
How We Can Help
In our lessons, you will receive a discussion of your goals, interests, skills and experience with singing, to see how we can serve your child and your needs as a parent best.
At your first lesson, together we will assign your child a vocal coach from our studio that is best suited to their preferences and tastes. We do an in depth assessment to see what areas of their voice need building the most first, and to see if there are any other major issues which need attending to.
Then, we will prescribe, and run your child through a set of exercises that they need to be doing – the RIGHT combination of tools – to get their voice in a great balance that is appropriate for their age and skill-level.
Many Ways To Get Involved
In our lessons, we will look at how to sing songs while maintaining a vibrant, free voice correctly. We may optionally set up a development program for them based on our “Singer’s Edge Program” and help them carve out a comprehensive plan. The plan develops a singer in all areas of growth for singing, not just technique.
We will also look at which of our lesson plans, group classes, performance opportunities, songwriting or other services we have to offer that would also best meet their goals and set you and your child up with that.
We also feature many bonus free group classes just for kids of every age group to meet other kids their age also exploring their voice!
Kids always have new things to work on
“Lessons always run on time. Teachers are always so pleasant, and genuinely interested in helping people, musically. My kids always have new things to work on, so they’re not getting bored. Even the reception staff are wonderfully welcoming. We have had an amazing journey with them, so far.”
- Hailynn Claus

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.
