ʺMost people operate on a very limited conception of creativity and of intelligence... The trouble is that creativity is a bit like literacy; you may have an aptitude for it, but never develop the abilities that are required to exercise it. And that's a big fault of our educaiton system.ʺ
Sir Ken Robinson
ʺPlaying an instrument is a skill, but so is thinking about music and thinking about the playing. We train our students from early age to be active participants in their own learning which helps them enjoy music making. For example, when starting out a new piece, we analyse it and discuss melody, phrasing, notation, and talk about the meaning. Children can relate better to the music and have a feeling of ownership as they are learning how to play it. We do this with all students on all levels.ʺ

We believe that learning music should be fun while adhering to high standards and our students are the reflection of that. They are the voice of change when it comes to learning piano the fun way -- because it is through their feedback that we (Jelena and I) are better teachers.
We are proud of all our students, and, although there are MANY DAILY SUCCESSES that we would love to tell you about (and could go on forwever), we decided to use this section to highlight only some of them. We'll tell you about the rest in person :)
Sandra Mandic did her Grade 9 RCM exam this summer and got amazing results!! Good job Sandra - we're extremely proud of you!
Avery, 4.5 year old, just had her third piano lesson today, and is already becoming a great musician. She sings while she plays her favourite songs. Keep it up Avery!

“I have been teaching music from kindergarten to university level for over 25 years. All children love to sing, dance and act. They have endless potential. During our rehearsals, I further develop this potential. I teach them how to build self-esteem, be a part of a team and perform on a stage. We create a memorable performance while children enjoy music and have fun.”
With over 10 years of teaching experience, starting out under Sunny's tutelage, Jelena has been working with children as young as 3 years old and adult learners, including seniors. As Royal Conservatory of Music and Ontario College of Teachers certified teacher, Jelena brings a wealth of knowledge about different teaching methods, an endless supply of enthusiasm and the ability to infect students with her love for the arts.
