In-Person Classes? Closer than You Think...

June 2021

Our world has changed as we know it but the beauty of it all is our willingness to adapt and how we have learned to adapt. We have been successfully conducting online lessons over ZOOM since January of 2021. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t excited to reopen in person and see our Mississauga Fine Arts Academy family! As July nears its end the province begins its stages of reopening, we look forward to being apart of that process too. We are excited to announce that we are resuming our in-person classes on July 26th! If you are waiting for in-person classes, this is a good time to sign up.  The waiting list is long and with over 150 people in line, it’ll be very busy. So secure your spot today before they are all gone.

Summer Virtual Recital Highlights

June 2021

Our students’ semiannual recitals are always being a huge hit. We always look for opportunities for our students to perform no matter the time. This time is not an exception. Over 200 hundred students performed at our Summer Virtual Recital. BIG THANKS to all participants and teachers who worked so tirelessly to make this event unforgettable. We are proud of each and everyone and as always looking forward to seeing students perform at the winter recital hopefully in person. Make sure to check out our YouTube or Facebook pages if you missed this event.

July 2021 Practice Challenge - The Creative Challenge

We know how much our students love to earn awards and how much we all love to see the students practicing, so we are excited to launch a new series of Practice Challenge wristbands!

Students will still be able to earn their regular Musical Ladder wristbands, such as Apprentice, Songbird, etc. – Think of these levels as Extra Credit! Certain wristbands can only be earned during certain times of the year, but there will be multiple opportunities to earn the wristbands.

As an added incentive, anyone who earns all SIX of the 2021 Practice Challenge wristbands will be eligible to receive the 2021 Practice Trophy at the end of the year!

For the month of July and August, we are excited to have students participate in the Creative Challenge. If you ever thought of writing a song, making your own arrangement of your favourite song, singing, dancing or even drawing it is a perfect time. Get your creativity going, the world is yours, the sky is not the limit. Submit your creative work with us and will feature it on our social media and in the newsletter. Everyone who submitted their creative work will receive a creative challenge wristband. And remember, those who collect all 6 wristbands will receive a Practice Challenge Trophy at the end of the year. Keep on practicing and most importantly have fun!

Here is Ardene’s creative challenge! She learned “How Far I’ll Go” from the movie Moana by herself. She learned the song by ear without the assistance of sheet music.

Let’s get creative!

We are very excited to announce that our June 2021 student of the month is Anik G.! Anik plays the guitar with Mr. Miguel! Here’s what Mr. Miguel has to say about Anik’s wonderful achievement:

“His drive and dedication to the guitar is honestly inspiring. He’s improved so much over the year and shows a lot of potential in the musical trajectory he’s on. I can see his eagerness to learn and improve in every class and I can tell he brings that energy into his personal practice time as well. Most importantly I can see his love for the instrument and for music in general and how it drives him to learn, improve and most importantly have fun.”
We also asked Anik a few questions. Here are his answers:
