Welcome William Shookhoff!

Midtown Music School is thrilled to announce our newest faculty member, William Shookhoff! Bill is a very accomplished musician, teacher, and coach. Among his career highlights: being the inaugural Associate Conductor of the first Canadian company of Les Miserables, and the initial touring company of Phantom of the Opera, working with opera companies all across North America, working at the Banff Centre for the Arts, and much more! In addition, you may hear some lovely opera floating around the halls while Bill is coaching his many opera singers as Artistic Director and founder of Opera By Request.

Bill is now available for piano lessons (and much more) on Saturday mornings at our school. Welcome, Bill!

Happy Holidays!

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season! To help get you in the holiday spirit, we'd like to leave you with a little holiday treat: some members of our MTMS Children's Choir singing a classic holiday favourite, led by the incomparable Meredith Wanstall. Happy Holidays, everyone!
