Music Education


608 Upper James St., Hamilton, Ontario

Mandate of providing affordable lessons to learners of all ages & experience levels. With group programs costing only ~$15/week and the inclusion of a free instrument rental, learning to play violin has never been so accessible!

Our group programs are fun and educational, with students learning a variety of music from classics like Bach and Beethoven to movie themes, Pop radio hits, Bluegrass and Celtic fiddling.
The group setting is a wonderful way to learn to make music with others. Our ensembles perform throughout the year in the community, including free concerts at retirement homes, libraries, markets, sports games, churches, charity events, music festivals and competitions.

There are group programs available for children beginning their musical journey, continuing students, advanced musicians, and adult learners.
