Why Midtown Music School?


There are many music schools in Toronto. So what makes Midtown Music School different?

Changing the Focus

Music is supposed to be a fun and enriching pursuit. That’s why we focus on a love of learning, and a love of the material. Students are given instruction by highly trained and specialized faculty, all of whom also love to teach. By focusing on the journey, the destination – the goals of the students – is met with greater success and satisfaction. Our track record of student achievements in festivals, competitions and auditions is a testament to this philosophy.

Changing the Tools

Midtown Music School believes that, as times change, so do the tools of the trade. While we are proud of our quality instruments for our students (including beautiful European hand-built pianos from Bechstein and Schimmel), we also feel that technology plays an important role in music education for the 21st century. That’s why Midtown Music School offers student recordings, custom-layout arrangements using Finale notation software, and tablet computers to enhance our music library. Imagine having over 50,000 pieces at your fingertips! That’s the kind of possibility available at Midtown Music School  today.

Keeping the Best

While some things change, others stand the test of time. Keeping the student’s needs at the forefront, we offer a variety of programs to ensure the love of the journey remains constant. From traditional classical instruction, to the enrichment of the world-renowned Suzuki program, to modern jazz, rock and pop, Midtown Music School embraces the value in all music. Delivered by the best possible teachers, it all adds up to the best music education experience we can give.

Always Open

We are only as great as the community that makes up our school. If you are a part of our community, your questions, suggestions and feedback are invaluable to the change and growth of Midtown Music School. Call us, send us an email, or simply come talk to us. We’re always happy to listen.

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.
