Daytime Lesson Options

If you are struggling to find an after-school time for music lessons, did you know that students are able to have lessons during the middle of the day? It's true! Not only is it a convenient option for adult learners who have flexible work hours, but even school-age children are eligible. At (21[2e] of Part II [School Attendance] of the Province of Ontario's Education Act 1990), it states:

“A person is excused from school attendance [without penalty, if] the person is absent from school for the purpose of receiving instruction in music and the period of absence does not exceed one-half day in any week;”

It's a great way to help deal with the often-chaotic after-school schedule-crunch! Let us know how we can help find a perfect time for your music education with us.

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.
