Musicianship

We believe in helping to develop the whole musician, not simply practical proficiency. At Toronto Music Alliance, we are please to offer a variety of programs to help bolster all aspect of musicality, from ear training to rhythmic comprehension. In addition, we have in-house accompaniment for all RCM examinations and auditions. Advanced students are encouraged to have a monthly session with an accompanist to help them understand the nature of playing with others (something we also foster in our Chamber Music program), as well as getting another point of view on their performance. These programs can be done on an ad hoc basis, or as an ongoing part of your musical training. However you choose to learn, these skills are musical musts!

Why Online-Only Lessons?

We've heard from many of you asking both when we will be able to return to in-person lessons, as well as why we are working only online with our students. The first answer is, we don't know. But the second answer is simple: safety. And we have the science to back it up.
