Piano Lessons

The piano teachers at Midtown Music School bring a wealth of experience working with students of all ages and levels. Our goal is to instill a lifelong love of music in our students and to provide a complete musical education through the piano.

Students here get to play on beautiful, well-maintained instruments in a bright, relaxed setting. We can cater the piano program to your needs, preparing students for RCM examinations, music festivals and university entrance auditions, or offering a more easygoing approach if you just want to learn for the love of it.

Besides learning to play the piano, students can expand on their musical knowledge through theory, sight reading and ear training.  As the student progresses, here at Midtown Music School we also offer all the theory and music history courses that complement the student's development in piano performance. The result is a well-rounded musician who understands music and loves playing it!

In addition to more traditional repertoire and goals, we also offer the world-renowned Suzuki approach – wonderful for young children, or students of any age! – as well as a complete Jazz program.  The Jazz program teaches students how to improvise, how to “gel” with other musicians in an ensemble, build chords, basslines and even compose for jazz combos.

Whatever your piano goals, we definitely have you covered!

Coronavirus Update, An Open Letter

This is David Stone, Director of Midtown Music School. As we all have seen, circumstances have changed dramatically. All schools in Ontario will be closed for three weeks, all major sports leagues are cancelled, Broadway is going dark until April 12th.  It is important during these uncertain - and unprecedented - times that we do our part to continue to live our lives as normally as possible.

With this in mind, the staff and I at Midtown Music School are going to do our utmost to help keep music as a regular part of your lives. In advance of these upcoming weeks, I wanted to help get everyone on board with how we will be able to keep the music going.
