The Academy of Music offers music lessons in-home, studio, at school and on-line! Starting in 1990 with in-home lessons in Winnipeg on piano, guitar & voice, we’ve expanded the in-home lessons to include violin, drums and ukulele. We now offer studio lessons as well as on-line instruction via Zoom or FaceTime throughout Canada and the U.S.A. on the piano, guitar, voice, violin, drums, ukulele, flute, saxophone, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, oboe, bassoon, euphonium, tuba, French horn, viola, cello, double bass and electric bass!
Learn with the Academy of Music
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.
At the Academy of Music, we strive to offer the best quality music instruction with exceptional 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 other cities across Canada. Please check our locations tab to see what options are available in your area.
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.
On-line and in-home 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.
