We have said goodbye to another AMAZING year at the Academy of Music! As you know the holidays are always a time to reflect on our many blessings and to appreciate our family and friends. We want to thank YOU for being a part of our musical family, and we count every one of you as a blessing. As we move forward I’d like to reflect on a few great things that did happen at the Academy last year:
- The Musical Ladder System®: We introduced the Musical Ladder® to our students n January 2016 and parents, students, and teachers are loving it! The new patent pending program is helping our students love their lessons and is motivating them to play more music. Academy students are getting more out of their lessons than ever before!
- WE HAVE GROWN: On December 31, 2015 there were about 265 students taking lessons at our schools in Oakville and Georgetown. As of December 31, 2016 there are OVER 425!
- Hired 2 new office managers (Graham and Denise). Along with Joe we now provide student support Monday—Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Although we cannot put an office manager in Georgetown due to space restrictions all of our students can call or email anytime and we will help make your experience with us a great one!
On a personal note : We have had an amazing 2016 and although I don’t have enough space to list all the great things here I do have space to say thank you. THANK YOU for referring the Academy to your friends. THANK YOU for supporting your children and families as they learn and grow in music. And THANK YOU for allowing us to be a part of your musical lives and journey.
From all of us in the office at the Academy of Music!

How do I enter? It’s easy!
Just tell your friends about the Academy and how much you love your lessons. If any of your friends sign up THEY will get a FREE $25 registration, YOU will get $25 off your next month of lessons, and BOTH families will be entered into the referral contest to win 4 season passes to Canada’s Wonderland for 2017!
The Academy of Music in Oakville and Georgetown are the only music schools in their areas to give their students the opportunity to earn cool color wristbands (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for completing musical challenges. No other school of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.
More importantly when our students have a challenge coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins!
Here are some of our recent achievers: Piano Student Stacey earned her Apprentice Wristband! Piano Student Alex earned his Rockstar wristband! Violin Student Avi earned his Songbird wristband.
PET OF THE MONTH IS BACK!!!
Neby lives with Graham and belongs to his sister. He’s a bit of a miracle as he got REALLY sick when she first brought him home. But she stayed with him not leaving his side for days and he pulled through. Neby is now healthy and happy, not to mention ADORABLE!
