We moved our three kids to North Toronto Institute of Music and saw their piano playing improve by leaps and bounds. Mary Kenedi was able to capture their interest and help them move forward. Her own skill with the piano and knowledge about music and music history inspires them to explore and push themselves.The format of the recitals makes them enjoyable and the more advanced students inspire all of us. We are happy parents indeed.
