Why Toronto Music Alliance?


There are many music schools in Toronto. So what makes Toronto Music Alliance different?

Changing the Focus

Music is supposed to be a fun and enriching pursuit. That’s why we focus on a love of learning, and a love of the material. Students are given instruction by highly trained and specialized faculty, all of whom also love to teach. By focusing on the journey, the destination – the goals of the students – is met with greater success and satisfaction. Our track record of student achievements in festivals, competitions and auditions is a testament to this philosophy.

Changing the Tools

Toronto Music Alliance believes that, as times change, so do the tools of the trade. While we are proud of our quality instruments for our students (including beautiful European hand-built pianos from Bechstein and Schimmel), we also feel that technology plays an important role in music education for the 21st century. That’s why Toronto Music Alliance offers student recordings, custom-layout arrangements using Finale notation software, and tablet computers to enhance our music library. Imagine having over 50,000 pieces at your fingertips! That’s the kind of possibility available at Toronto Music Alliance  today.

Keeping the Best

While some things change, others stand the test of time. Keeping the student’s needs at the forefront, we offer a variety of programs to ensure the love of the journey remains constant. From traditional classical instruction, to the enrichment of the world-renowned Suzuki program, to modern jazz, rock and pop, Toronto Music Alliance embraces the value in all music. Delivered by the best possible teachers, it all adds up to the best music education experience we can give.

Always Open

We are only as great as the community that makes up our school. If you are a part of our community, your questions, suggestions and feedback are invaluable to the change and growth of Toronto Music Alliance. Call us, send us an email, or simply come talk to us. We’re always happy to listen.

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.
