Personalized Curriculum-General:
Students who have a preferred taste in music can start learning their favourite songs while working through the required information to set them up on their path in becoming great musicians. Students will learn how to read music, use proper posture and techniques, ear training, theory, and develop techniques related to their preferred musical genre. Scales and exercises are used to strengthen their finger or voice. Everyone has a unique sound and the teachers are here to bring this forward. Learn any style such as Pop, indie, classical, jazz, blues, rock, or anything you can think of.

Private Lessons:
Young children have brains like sponges and it’s our goal to make sure they soak up as much knowledge as they can.  Everyone’s learning process is as unique as their fingerprints, which is why our curriculum is catered to the individual’s needs.  Some students enjoy theory while others take to learning by ear, but no matter how a student finds his or her way we are committed to helping them get there.
