Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there a discount for enrolling two or more kids for lessons?

    Yes! When you enrol two or more kids for lessons, you'll receive all lesson books for FREE! Also, the registration fee will apply only to the first student.

  • What age can kids start at?

    We start private lessons on piano (and all other instruments we teach) at age 5. For younger children, check out our awesome KINDERMUSIK program.

  • Do you teach adults as well?

    Yes! We have many adult students learning all instruments that we offer at our school.

    Fun fact: a study shows that while 20% of children learn to play music, 70% of adults WISH they had learned… check this off of your bucket list!

  • Do we need to have an instrument at home?

    While it's important to have an instrument at home in order to practice between lessons, it doesn't need to be a big financial commitment.

    Piano Students:
    Many of our students start lessons on a 61-key portable keyboard. We have these available for rent for $20/month. They are also easily purchased from any music store, and often even Costco or Best Buy.

    Guitar Students:
    We have 3/4-scale acoustic guitars (perfect for kids) available to rent for $20/month, or can provide guidance on where to purchase/rent from local retailers.

    Drum Students:
    Many of our students start off with a practice pad before moving on to a drum kit later on. If you'd like to bring a drum kit into your home but aren't ready to purchase one outright, we can provide information on rentals.

    Other Instruments:
    We can provide guidance on where to rent or purchase. Give us a call at 905-690-8010.

  • How long are we committed to lessons for? What if we want to stop?

    Our academy doesn't make you sign any long-term contract. Our students are here because they love their lessons, not because they're locked in. Our lessons are month-to-month… take lessons for as long as you want!

  • What happens if we need to miss a lesson?

    No problem! If you can't make it to the academy for your lesson, you have the option of taking your lesson online at your usual lesson time, or sign up for one of our FREE group makeup lessons.
