When children are given the tools to create and the freedom to express, something truly magical happens.

Music programs give children the opportunity to learn a musical instrument or develop vocal skills, in a safe, fun and comfortable environment. From classical piano to rock guitar, the genre, style, and focus are all things you can discuss with your program coordinator or teacher.

It has been scientifically suggested that learning music at a young age has a direct impact on academic success. Understanding timing, rhythm, scales, and progressions effectively translates to an improved ability to create, memorize, and solve problems. Additionally, children develop improved coordination and motor skills, self-esteem, patience and discipline through music programs.

Music activities

Look for a program that offers small class sizes, which give children the opportunity to meet new friends and work together while still having that one-to-one connection with their music teachers when it comes to learning the finer details.

Music programs have much to offer. From learning to read sheet music and understanding the math and theory behind it, to discovering the history of musical genre through the decades, children will receive an education far beyond simply learning how to play a few catchy tunes.

A music program gives children the chance to get out of the house, discover something they are passionate about, and opens the door to a lifetime of enjoyment.

There are music programs throughout Canada. This includes Ontario, BC, and Quebec. Below, we list music programs throughout the country.
