Raising Money for Holland Bloorview

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!

We would like to formally welcome violinist Catherine Cosbey to our faculty at Midtown Music School! Catherine is a very talented performer and teacher. (And she's the sister of cello faculty Peter Cosbey; we enjoy being a family-driven school.) Catherine is now available for lessons for students of all ages and abilities. Welcome, Catherine! Feel free to read more about her and her amazing accomplishments here.

An Open Letter for Our Fifth Anniversary

On May 15th, 2011, Midtown Music School opened its doors for the first time. This weekend, we celebrated our fifth anniversary. I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for being a part of our amazing school.

When we started, there were only two of us, with one really nice piano and a whole lot of hope. Fast forward, and our faculty has grown to include not just piano, but all string instruments, stellar singing/songwriting and guitar departments, along with a complete Theory and History department (a rarity for any school to have that all under one roof!).

Ida, Peter, Mariko, Karen, Joanna, Richard, Yosef and Meredith: Our school is the best because of your amazing professionalism, expertise and heart. We wouldn’t be a school without you! On behalf of myself and all of the students, thank you for everything you do.

Theory/History Co-Requisites Information

So you just registered for your practical RCM exam. Congratulations! But if it was Grade 5 or above, did you complete the Theory or History co-requisites? No? Not to worry; Midtown Music School has got you covered on every subject, from Preliminary Rudiments all the way to Counterpoint and Analysis. We can prepare you for every May, August or December Theory/History Examination, all under one roof. And did you know they can count towards an Ontario high school credit? Read on for all the details.
