At what age should my child start in music lessons?It is never too early to begin your journey in music! Our youngest students will begin classes in our age appropriate Piano Fingers Group Classes. Private classes begin for children from 4 years+
Can my child study Royal Conservatory of Music?Yes, we do offer and encourage students to take part in the Royal Conservatory of Music Examinations and it serves as a strong part of our curriculum. Although it is not mandatory, setting a goal with the examination motivates students to achieve higher standards in their playing ability. There are a wide range of curriculum options, and your teacher can help to determine which path is best for each student.
Why are festivals an important learning process, and which ones can my child participate in?Music festivals give students a chance to share their music with others, and receive feedback on their playing. With competitive and non-competitive classes, there is an opportunity to perform for everyone. In the past, our students have participated and achieved positive results in the Peel, Burlington, and Kiwanis music festivals.
