Classes for Beginners aged 3-10
We place beginning students in our highly supportive groups classes to give them the best possible foundation. We support parents by:
1) scheduling classes after school, evening or on Saturdays so parents can also easily attend (parental attendance is required)
2) using fun-filled activities we teach your child here, and then we send you home with the same fun activities to reinforce what was already completed in class.
We keep our students motivated and engaged with a wide range of activities and steady progress. SEE MORE

Although theory is incorporated into private lessons, once students are at level 5 we strongly recommend a second class each week to prepare for theory exams. We use the Sound Advice program, proudly developed here in Victoria and recognized by both the Victoria Conservatory of Music and the Royal Conservatory. Classes are hybrid, in that they will be in person, but can be attended online. see more
