7. Free music recitals in a beautiful church and our annual rock band showcase!
We are the only music school in Oakville that offers free music recitals with a grand piano in a beautiful church and modern rock recitals.
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.
We also host a rock band showcase once a year, which gives your child the opportunity to play with a live rock band!

9. Ontario Music Teachers Guild Membership
The Academy is a member of the Ontario Music Teacher’s Guild, a non-profit organization dedicated to continually improving and enhancing the experience of learning music. Membership in the guild allows the school to participate in 2 annual music festivals per year designed to celebrate the art of music performance and allows students to gain performance experience and showcase their talents . We are the only school in Oakville with the OMTG membership.
10.Trophies, certificates and award wristbands to celebrate achievement.
We are the only music school Oakville that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students by giving them full color, 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. We also specialize in music lessons for adults.
