We are thrilled to announce that, starting September 2017, our Suzuki-certified violin teacher Catherine Cosbey will be running our new Suzuki Violin program at Midtown Music School! This will involve both the private lesson as well as the supplementary group class. More details regarding dates and times will be available soon. In the meantime, we are accepting applications for students in order to ensure our group classes are fun, fulfilling and engaging. We hope to see many new faces performing beautiful new music!

Now that the weather has finally changed, it's time to talk Summer! Lessons, that is. At Midtown Music School, we're open all year round. Read on to find out how things work when the mercury rises. (And don't worry; we do have air conditioning.)
At Midtown Music School, we follow the TDSB calendar. Every student is welcome to take a week off for March Break. This year, the dates fall on March 11-17. We are available for lessons during the week if people wish to take lessons. Enjoy your time, however you choose to spend it!
We have always tried to give back to the community whenever possible. As such, Midtown Music School is pleased to participate in Holland Bloorview’s Capes for Kids campaign! This fun fundraiser involves someone (in this case, David Stone) dressing in a cape for an entire week to raise money for Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. It’s all about being a hero for kids with physical challenges, be they born with them or rehabilitation. This amazing facility has touched many lives – including our family – so please consider donating towards this amazing cause. (Donations over $10 are eligible for a tax receipt.) Also, as an added bonus: Anyone who donates $50 or more will be entered into a draw for a free one-hour private lesson with David for anything he can teach!
You can donate online by clicking this link. Thank you for your support!

If you are struggling to find an after-school time for music lessons, did you know that students are able to have lessons during the middle of the day? It's true! Not only is it a convenient option for adult learners who have flexible work hours, but even school-age children are eligible. At (21[2e] of Part II [School Attendance] of the Province of Ontario's Education Act 1990), it states:
Music is an important part of every child's life. At Midtown Music School, we are pleased to be able to offer Suzuki Piano (and Suzuki Violin very soon!).

We would like to formally welcome violinist Catherine Cosbey to our faculty at Midtown Music School! Catherine is a very talented performer and teacher.
