Which instrument should my child start with?

If you're uncertain about which instrument your child should start with, consider booking a music interview to speak with a music specialist at our school. This will help answer questions and set your child on a positive musical journey.

At what age should my child start in music lessons?
Children may begin music lessons at the age of 4 and up, but we do accept students as young as 3 based on an interview. It's never too late to start the musical journey; even if your child is 5 or 6, 7, to 8+! Children benefit from the natural connection children have with music, similar to learning a language at a young age.

Can my child study courses towards certification with the Royal Conservatory of Music?

Absolutely! We encourage students to participate in the Royal Conservatory of Music Examinations, which is a significant part of our curriculum. While not mandatory, setting examination goals motivates students to achieve higher standards in their playing ability. With various curriculum options available, our teachers can help determine the best path for each student.

Do you have in-school concerts?

We organize two exciting concerts during the academic year to showcase our students' achievements. These performances provide a friendly and supportive environment for students to share their accomplishments with the school community. While encouraged, participation in these concerts is not mandatory.

Do you offer theory classes?

Yes, we do! Music theory is a crucial aspect of our programming as it forms the language of music. Understanding music theory enhances the learning process and performance. If your child encounters difficulty reading music, consider enrolling in a music theory class. Additionally, we prepare students for theory examinations with the Royal Conservatory of Music.

We're eager to meet you and guide you on your musical journey!
