Learn Music


Learn with Private Instruction

When a child reaches an age at which he/she can focus for a longer time and can apply this towards practicing regularly, then they are considered ready for music lessons. The parents are responsible for evaluating whether their child is prepared or not as the age can vary since each child is unique and develops at their own pace. Before this milestone occurs, it is found that children shall benefit initially from preparatory music classes where they have more physical freedom and can enjoy learning through playful movements and songs.

Often, an excellent place to begin is with an instrument that the child has already expressed an interest in. Most instruments, aside from piano, can be altered for the student’s size. These include the violin, cello, and guitar. Our teachers are happy to guide parents and students in purchasing or renting the appropriate instrument.

Cost of lessons: ranges from $96-$125 per hour depending on the teacher and are pro-rated for 45 min and 30 min sessions accordingly. Lessons are subject to an annual registration fee.

The tuition is paid in advance for the academic year either in full or in three payments due in September, December and April. The registration fee is due at the time of registration each year for both new and returning students.

Student Recitals and other performance opportunities

Students are encouraged to prepare for recitals, which are held twice a year, in December and in June. In the event of any safety concerns due to COVID-19, the recitals will be in a virtual or hybrid format.Students can also participate in master classes, festivals and auditions. These opportunities greatly enhance and develop performance skills and allow students to share their artistic vision with others.

Studio Recitals: Both our student and Faculty series recitals had taken place in the Recital Hall of the Briton House Retirement Center at 720 Mt. Pleasant Ave. The hall contains the Institute’s grand piano and the seniors of the center have been delighted to be regular audiences at these events. Stay tune for updates on the date and location for upcoming in-person recitals

Learn Music Theory

The Royal Conservatory curriculum requires any student who desires to pursue Grade 5 instrumental studies, and higher levels take co-requisite written courses to expand their practical knowledge. Successful completion of theory examinations along with the appropriate instrumental exams is accepted as credits towards secondary school graduation diplomas.

Jesse began studying violin with Sheila nearly 5 years ago, and has made steady progress from day 1. Sheila is flexible with her teaching style and is positive, patient and understanding. She challenges him, and always provides good guidance and advice. Jesse greatly appreciates that she asks him for his opinion about both his playing and repertoire, helping him develop his ear, self-confidence, and engagement in his learning. The school’s twice-yearly recitals provide us with the opportunity to perform together (with me accompanying him) – a special experience for us both.
