At Creative Piano Teaching, instructor James Lee Vatter's students find themselves immersed in a supportive, challenging environment that strives to make learning music a fun and rewarding undertaking. His pupils learn a wide range of musical styles as they pounce on the keyboard at weekly lessons, demonstrating the skills and concepts learned in previous sessions. Along with lessons, students can participate in festivals and competitions.
Rhythm. Melody. Harmony. These are some of the things that turn mere sounds into music. At Music&Motion, instructors introduce these concepts to little ones aged 5 and younger. They play original music and help kids and parents build musical bonds through activities such as playing instruments, singing, and dancing.
Dorian School of Music plucks at the undiscovered skills of novice musicians with inspiring lessons designed to make every soloist a virtuoso. Use four 30-minute classes to rub shoulders with a choice of instruments—drums, guitar, bass guitar, violin and viola, piano, organ, and vocals—and, if, desired, study the Royal Conservatory of Music Curriculum (for piano or guitar) or the Suzuki Method (violin). Perch on a piano bench and tap out a double-entendre-filled Beethoven concerto, or crash mallets into drum cymbals to let your neighbours know you’re awake bright and early. Dorian School of Music's fabulous faculty teaches students to approach each session as a classical conquest, preparing young musicians for the day they battle sentient instruments for control of major cities.

Music industry veterans Stan Denis and Paul Benedetti, both fathers of ambitious child musicians, spent years commiserating about the dismal, calcified state of music education. Deciding to do something about it, the two founded Rock School Music, determined to mix the principles of classical pedagogy with a heavy dose of kid-directed originality. Rather than focusing on scales and hoary old etudes, their instructors encourage students to bring in music they actually enjoy listening to, helping aspiring rockers play their favorite songs and recommending technical drills that directly improve their ability to play the studied piece.
In addition to private lessons, the studio's Rock School program arranges young jammers into bands based on their skill levels, before giving them a weekend practice space and sponsoring regular rock concerts for friends and family. Rock School Music’s studio, furnished with plush leather chairs and a wood-paneled front desk, inspires visitors to pursue their musical dreams with its framed band posters and fern plants that resemble Slash.
When it comes to the creative process, there's enough room for everyone. That's the philosophy at Odyssey School of Fine Arts, a non-profit art school for both kids ages 5 and up and adults. Their faculty instructs in drawing, painting, sculpture, and many other mediums worthy of a place in the "art" section of the encyclopedia. In addition to classes, Odyssey School of Fine Arts brings people together to make community art projects such as mosaics.
