HOW THE SUMMER WORKS:

Each Spring we are often asked questions:


Q. “How do lessons work in the Summer?”
A. Many parents are looking for Summer activities for
their children. We ‘re glad to announce that the school
is open year round, and we do not close during the summer!
Q. “How full is the school?”
A. “As of today we are at approximately 90% capacity, and many teachers are
sold out between the hours of 4:00pm – 8:00pm
Q. “If we withdraw for the Summer, can we continue right where we left off in Autumn?”
A. Lessons are first come first serve, so if you withdraw for the Summer, we cannot guarantee that we will have a spot for you in the Autumn as we will open the spot to new students. As well, your progress on the Musical
Ladder will be reset to the beginning.

Do you want to stay with the same teacher in the Autumn?
If the answer is YES there are 3 ways to do this:

  1. Take advantage of our group make up lessons
    We realize that some of you will go on vacation for a portion of the Summer. By signing up for the group make-up classes, you can make up all of your missing classes without having to withdraw from the school.
    It’s very easy to do!
    Sign up for a group make-up lesson at a time convenient for you by using our online system Sign Up Genius. If you don’t know when you want your make-up lesson to be yet, don’t worry! Our group make-up classes do not expire, nor do they have any limit.
    GET A HEAD START: You can start making up lessons for the Summer in advance.
  2. Take Online Lessons
    We are now offering Online Lessons using platforms such as Skype and Zoom. If you are away and cannot make it to your class, all you need is internet access and your instrument. Your teacher will be teaching you live at your regular scheduled time and day.
  3. You can offer your spot to a family member or friend.
    You can send family members or friends in your place for the dates you will miss. Just let the
    office know who is coming in your place and when so that we can let the teachers know ahead of time.
    Each September, we get calls from students who have been with us for years, but withdrew for the Summer. They want to return to the same teacher, day and time, but the spot has been filled by another student.
    If you LOVE your teacher, keep your spot by using the make up classes or take online lessons or lend your spot to a friend!

Student Of The Month- Olivia S.!

No matter how big or how small, we love to celebrate our students and their achievements! This month, we spoke with our teacher Miss Mariana and she told us about her student Olivia and how much she’s been
improving in their classes.

We asked Olivia a few questions about herself and everything she’s learned, and this is what she told us:

What instrument do you play?
Piano
How long have you been taking lessons?
10 years
What’s your favourite song to play?
Anything by Chopin, Nocturnes
What is your favourite food?
Sushi
What is your favourite thing you’ve learned in class recently?
All the songs I have been preparing for my grade 10 exam
What is your favourite colour?

We asked Miss Mariana to let us know more about Olivia, and this is what she told us:
“Olivia has been my student since grade 1. During all of those years she has shown great love for music, practiced very well and always was eager to learn new pieces; always wanted to play difficult and famous pieces! Her dreams came true. Now Olivia is a grade 10 piano student and has become a strong pianist and continues progressing”

Congratulations for your achievements Olivia and we look forward to seeing you continue to grow!
