Music Lessons Georgetown Ontario
Frequently Asked Questions
What do you learn in your music lessons?
That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.
We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach.
A seven year old having their first piano lesson will have very different needs than a fifty seven year old taking up the guitar for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.
The main reason to choose the Academy as your music lesson provider is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.
What styles of music do you teach?
We teach most styles from classical to rock, pop, jazz, country, and blues.
Are your instructors qualified?
Our teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions such as York University, Western University, Humber College, Mohawk College, and the University of Toronto. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of Canada and the US, and have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.
(for ages 4 and up)
Private Piano lessons for Children can start as early as age 4. Piano is the basic foundation of music and it’s the best instrument to start on. We have students who are learning for fun and students who participate in the Royal Conservatory exams. We start private piano lessons at any age from age 5 onward. Our one-on-one private piano lessons mean that the teacher can focus all of their attention on the individual of each student. Adults can start piano lessons at any age. Adult programs are tailored to each student. Many adults prefer to learn pop, jazz, or gospel music in their lessons. Learn more about our piano lessons.
PIANO LESSONS FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
(for ages 4 – 5)
Our fun and engaging piano program was specifically designed with the young beginner in mind. Students learn the fundamentals of music while at the same time learning how to play the piano. The “My First Piano Adventure” program incorporates elements of piano playing, reading, and writing in a way that is fun and accessible to early beginners. This is done with the use of games, sing a long songs and writing activities. Learn more about our piano classes for young children.

No matter what type of guitar lessons you are interested in, we have the right teachers for you. Usually we start guitar at 7 years old because of their hand size, however some younger students start with a smaller guitar or ukulele. Learn more about our guitar lessons.
