Strings (Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass)

The Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass comprise the String Family of instruments. String instruments are among the oldest and most revered of the orchestra. They are capable of producing almost every sound to elicit almost every emotion. From sweet dulcet tones to soaring romantic melodies, the string family is among the most versatile instruments today.

Our teachers have studied their instruments for many years, and have been involved in many orchestras and ensembles. As well as being in the Annex Quartet, our Strings Faculty have performed with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company Orchestra and the National Ballet Orchestra among others. They have performed on almost every continent and in prestigious concert halls like Carnegie Hall in New York. Most importantly, they are thrilled to share their passion for their instruments with students, helping students prepare for any musical endeavour.

In addition, Midtown Music School is pleased to offer in-house instrument rentals through Remenyi House of Music. Please let us know if you require an instrument. We will be happy to set you up with the right instrument for your needs!

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.
