The Canada Music Academy

Our Goal

At the Canada Music Academy, our goal is to make music lessons fun and exhilarating for our students, while still providing a structured learning approach that's necessary to achieve tangible results and help our students realize their musical dreams.
We specialize in music instruction with lessons customized to meet the individual needs of each student - from Beginner to Advanced.

Music Lessons for Everyone

At Our Studios or Your Home

The Canada Music Academy offers innovative and diverse programs for students of all ages, levels and backgrounds in Classical, Popular, Jazz, Folk, Rock, World music and more. Music lessons are available throughout Ontario and Quebec at our music schools, at our teaching studios, or at your home.

Certified Teachers

How Do We Select Our Teachers?

With a growing team of over 170 teachers in Ontario, and over 8000 students across Canada, our teacher selection process is rigorous. We only work with musicians and teachers who are recognized as being well versed in their instrument, who are often well-known award-winning artists, and who hold a degree in music from Bachelor to Doctorate in music or equivalent. We further ensure that they have impeccable teaching credentials, because sometimes great players are not necessarily the greatest teachers.

We want the public to have confidence that any Canada Music Academy Teacher has been thoroughly vetted and certified as having proven competence as a teacher and musician.

"Dear Randa, Thank you for your care and follow up; it means so very much to me. I will be more than happy to pursue singing with Angie... It seems that I will be singing again soon. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." / Mansa - Student in Montreal

"The students and staff at Sinclair Laird Elementary School in Montreal would like to say Thank-You to All You Need Music and the Canada Music Academy for providing the instruments we bought after being awarded the Band Aid Musical Instrument Grant from MusiCounts this year. The new instruments are an exciting addition to our music program. It is such a pleasure to see the children enjoying a variety of new instruments in class as well as in the preparation of our upcoming Spring Concerts. All You Need Music played a big role in fulfilling our instrument "wish list" within our given deadline, they were always so friendly and ready to help. The CTV coverage is testament to how happy the students were to open the new boxes of instruments for the first time and discover what would become part of our school's inventory. Thank-You All You Need Music for helping us with the last and most exciting part of fulfilling our goal." / Mme. Helene Diguer, Music Teacher, Sinclair Laird School

"As a parent at Sinclair Laird and member of the Parents Participation Organization, I would like to say Thank-You for all the great instruments that All You Need Music supplied us with. We are always trying to help raise the bar in the students' education and bringing greater exposure to music and the arts is a big part of this process. They were so excited to discover so many new instruments and equally happy to have new instruments in good shape and in more abundance. Thank-You for being such and integral part of this process, we are excited to see all the instruments we have now being played by our kids. / Joanna Peters Mother and Volunteer, Sinclair Laird School

I would like to congratulate you and your team on the wonderful concert you organized in June. I was very much impressed with the overall talent of all the students. I understand that for some of them it was the first time in front of an audience and for some it was the first time on the professional stage. Nevertheless, they all showed the incredible talent they posses. My family and I, we enjoyed every single performance. The fact that the Starfest event took place at Place des Arts has given all of the students, parents and, I am sure, the music teachers that additional edge. I would like to thank you and all the organizers who dedicated their valuable time and professional expertise to organize this year's event. Congratulations. /Magdalena (Parent)

 I just want to thank you for letting me take part in the recital on the 19th. I had such a great time! Nobody at school could believe that I had played at Place Des Arts! Well, thanks for such a great opportunity! / Jordy  (Student - 10yrs Old - Piano)

We would like to tell you that we are very happy with the school, the teacher, Talia, and the service that we have gotten. My son has enjoyed every minute of this experience. Thank you for making it so positive. / Marsha

I have been a sudent of the Academy since January 2004 and it's been a wonderful experience. I got a late start with my music lessons (I'm  41) and was a little concerned about being able to follow. I'm glad to say that things are going well and I'm very happy with my violin teacher, Trina. I enjoy her teaching style very much and plan to continue with her. / Bianca S. - violin student

I think you're doing a great service for music lovers. Keep up the good work.
Angela:) / Teacher

We are absolutely thrilled with our teachers.  Our guitar teacher  has been a great influence on our son and he is loving his lessons.  Our piano teacher is a real jewel.  Her talent, patience and interactions with our son have given him a wonderful first experience. /Judith – Parent

You know I think you're marvelous - so organized, upbeat, very "student-centred". /Jill  (teacher)

My daughters have 2 different teachers (Cathy and Marilyn) and they are both extremely pleased with their lessons. It's been a pleasure dealing with the school and the teachers thus far and we look forward to continuing the lessons throughout the school year. /Jane  (Parent)

Having worked for several teaching studio's throughout the years, I have to say that the Montreal Academy is one of the best I've worked for so far. / Kathryn (Teacher)

My son Luis is taking trumpet lessons with Xylo. Xylo has certainly been a great teacher for Luis so far and we are looking forward to working with him in the future. /Verena (Parent)

Thank you
for what a great time I have been having! I am making good progress and happy with the lessons!  Marilyn gives her students confidence.  Music lessons are going really really well and I am happy with the way things are working out! /Carla

We love Gracey's new accordion teacher and he seems to be a perfect match for our needs. Mathieu is a sensitive and intelligent teacher who lives and breathes music in a creative and original way. The experience is very inspiring and motivating (even for mom who sits on the side and does paperwork during the lesson). Mathieu has been flexible with his schedule and this was also an asset as Gracey is still interested in maintaining her accordion lessons but is swamped with new life demands as she is in her first semester of a science program at Cegep and is holding down a job for the first time as well. It has been a stressful semester, but the lessons with Mathieu help rather than add to the sense of excessive demand she has had to deal with. We feel fortunate to have Mathieu as Gracey's accordion teacher and look forward to many more lessons.
Take care and thank you for finding someone so talented. /Mary (Parent)

Thank you very much! Yes, we really appreciated the quality of the lessons, the well-organized website, and everything about your academy. Best, Mary
