Learn with the Academy of Music

At the Academy of Music, we strive to offer the best quality music instruction with exceptional highly trained and qualified music educators at an affordable tuition rate. We also strive to offer convenience with options to have the instructor come to your home either a live person or virtually with online lessons. We’ve also expanded to offer studio lessons at various locations across Winnipeg and online lessons across Canada.
When students take lessons with the Academy of Music, they learn the concepts required and progressively develop the mental, physical and emotional skills needed to play and perform their instrument of study effectively including to read music correctly and efficiently. All our instruments of study (including voice), follow a method of study which deliver concepts sequentially and lead to the Royal Conservatory of Music course. Instructors give feedback on student’s progress both verbally and in written form in a lesson notebook or dictation book. Teachers at Academy of Music are qualified to prepare students for Royal Conservatory examinations.
We also teach the students the skills required to perform their instrument in public and offer them opportunities to develop those skills through the free recitals we offer in December and June and other performing opportunities such as the Winnipeg Music Festival in March. For more information on the Winnipeg Music Festival, please visit their website at https://www.winnipegmusicfestival.org/
The value of musical education is not to be underestimated. Students who take music lessons are learning so much, it’s hard to put it all into words. The academic, cognitive and physical side is easy enough to define: they learn to read music and time signatures, they learn to play their instrument, how to place their hands just so. When you play music, your brain is firing on all cylinders, because there are so many elements to keep in mind in any given moment; how fast to play, what rhythm to play, what notes to play.
There’s more to it than just that, though; there’s also the emotional side, the primal element that makes music, the thing that we feel with our whole bodies before we can even speak when we’re still infants. The confidence you gain when you finally nail a new piece. The emotional rush that comes with playing a piece that you feel down to your bones.

How do we teach?

At the Academy of Music, we want everyone to be able to develop in all aspects of their musical education – not just physically, not just in learning the language of music, but in learning the poetry & theory of it, the essence that makes music one of the only universal cultural experiences. The core, emotive side of music makes it a common language for all humans. To do this, we teach you music in the most comfortable place possible; your own home.

In-home and online lessons are our specialty because we truly want to bring music to everyone. We imagine all the people who want to learn music, but can’t because of their busy schedules. The single parent who took guitar lessons as a teenager, but finds themselves too busy with the kids and housework to justify driving to a private school to learn their instrument. The grandparent wants to take ukulele lessons and play the songs of their youth, but can’t see well enough to drive anymore. The child who wants to learn to play the old piano in their house, but whose parents are too busy to take them away from home for lessons.
