Music Lessons

Private Music Lessons

Our one-on-one music lessons are available to anyone in the community. No auditions are required and lessons are taught to students of all levels and ages from three years and up.

All of our lessons are customized based on students' needs and objectives: Whether you want to study for your personal enjoyment or to prepare yourself for an audition or Royal Conservatory of Music exam, we are here to help you!

When Can I Start?

Private lessons are offered year round, during the day, early evening and sometimes weekends. Students can commence lessons at any time depending on instructor availability, but need to commit to a full package of 15 lessons at a time.  This will ensure the student gets the most out of the lessons, and will allow the instructor to set aside the weekly lesson time for the student. Many of our instructors also offer lessons in the spring and summer months. The lessons are at Casa (230 8th Street South) and are scheduled based on mutual convenience, during the day or in the evening.
