“piano is known to be the most challenging instrument in the world to master
and the most popular musical instrument people take lessons for.”
Students have a choice to participate and follow through the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum OR may learn piano just for fun as a hobby. We can teach any kind of genre. You name it! Jazz, pop, country, soul, RnB, Blues? We know it all.
We are qualified to apply and prepare students for any RCM practical examinations.
RCM CURRICULUM (for all levels) consists the in-depth study of Repertoire, Studies, Technique, Sight Reading, and Ear Training.
Visit the RCM website for more info.
Preparation for university/ college music-related programs is available as well. We can help you prepare for the audition process to ensure you meet your post-secondary institution's requirements for your entry application. All universities and colleges that offer music programs test candidates on music theory and music performance with their primary instrument. These music tests play a significant factor in the decision making process of selecting successful candidates. We can also help you prepare for any university/ college level music theory test and/ or music practical performances that may be required of you during your post-secondary career.
LOOKING TO BUY A PIANO?
Talk to any JQL Music & The Arts instructor to get the best recommendations! Every student is required a different type of piano due to skill level differences. For beginners who have no music background to begin with, we would suggest a simple electric/ digital piano. That would do the job for a year or two or even longer, depending on the student's progress, speed and ability to move forward.
For those who are going through The Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) curriculum, we strongly recommend to purchase an acoustic piano for at-home practicing. All RCM exams require students to play on an acoustic piano either on an "Upright piano" or a "Grand piano". This is also why within our music studios, we have both upright and grand piano for students to practice on. The more exposed they are to acoustic pianos, the better performance they will give on the day of their exams.
Please note: There is a huge difference between a digital piano and an acoustic piano. They both produce their own unique sound. Please talk to one of our music instructors to find out more details about their differences.
We have some great dealers on our team who give extraordinary savings especially to our students! You do not want to miss these deals. Our dealers sell both used and new acoustic pianos from various trustworthy popular brands. Contact us today for more information!
