2. Highly qualified teaching staff
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, the US, and Europe 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.
3.The Musical Ladder System
We are the only music school Oakville that gives their students the opportunity to earn special colour wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer prizes and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students by giving them full colour, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that you can only get here.
More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here. Learn more about the Musical Ladder System.

7. Picture Day
We are the only music school in Oakville that offers a picture day for their students

8. Free music recitals twice a year
Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital.
In April and December many of our students choose to perform in our biannual recitals. We hold these at a beautiful church with a grand piano, and all the equipment necessary to make you sound great. The recitals are held right here in Oakville so you don’t have to travel for a world class recital experience.
For our students these recitals are free and unlike many schools in Oakville we do not charge for recital participation or admission fees.

The Academy of Music offers optional music examinations two times per year. These examinations ensure that our students are fully prepared to go to the next level and contribute to the long term success of the music student. Note: Music exams and recitals are optional.

Excellent customer service is what sets us apart!
