Piano Lessons

The piano teachers at Toronto Music Alliance bring a wealth of experience working with students of all ages and levels. Our goal is to instill a lifelong love of music in our students and to provide a complete musical education through the piano.

Students here get to play on beautiful, well-maintained instruments in a bright, relaxed setting. We can cater the piano program to your needs, preparing students for RCM examinations, music festivals and university entrance auditions, or offering a more easygoing approach if you just want to learn for the love of it.

Besides learning to play the piano, students can expand on their musical knowledge through theory, sight reading and ear training.  As the student progresses, here at Toronto Music Alliance we also offer all the theory and music history courses that complement the student's development in piano performance. The result is a well-rounded musician who understands music and loves playing it!

In addition to more traditional repertoire and goals, we also offer the world-renowned Suzuki approach – wonderful for young children, or students of any age! – as well as a complete Jazz program.  The Jazz program teaches students how to improvise, how to “gel” with other musicians in an ensemble, build chords, basslines and even compose for jazz combos.

Whatever your piano goals, we definitely have you covered!

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.
