School of Music Arts just had it's first birthday and we're still growing fast. We love music, and we love to teach, and we're excited to bring more music lessons to London, Ontario. We found the video below to be very educational about how playing an instrument can help in a variety of ways, more than any other activity. We invite you to check it out!
Are we the right music school for you?
10 Benefits of Becoming a SMArts Student
1. Wide Variety of Instruments
We teach piano, keyboard, voice, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, classical guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, violin, cello, trumpet, french horn, flute, saxophone and clarinet...ALL IN ONE PLACE!
2. The Most Qualified Teachers
All of our teachers have either college or university training, or they are professional musicians. Each one is dedicated to helping you achieve your personal musical goals and to helping you learn the songs and styles that you want to learn in your music lessons.
3. Flexible Lesson Times Available
We know that you have a busy schedule, and we also know that everyone's schedules are different. From daytime lessons to night, and weekend lessons, we accommodate even the busiest schedules.
12:00pm - 8:00pm Mondays to Fridays
9:00am - 3:00pm Saturdays
4. Comfortable and Entertaining Waiting Room
Instead of waiting in a music store showroom, our clients enjoy a comfortable waiting room equipped with magazines, toys for kids, colouring books, free bottled water and wifi, and even a 39" television with documentaries, kids shows and other programs available to watch.
5. Free Music Recitals
We hold two recitals per year, and we encourage all of our students to participate. Every parent wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. Recitals are a great way for students to show off what they've learned and to develop the skills used in performing in front of an audience. Students may participate for free, and the only admission we ask for is a donation for the London Food Bank.
6. High Quality Sound-Proofing
Unlike most music school studios, our rooms have been constructed using premium materials that eliminate over 90% of sound including low frequencies that are more difficult to block. The result is a sound-proofed studio where students enjoy greater focus without the distractions of other lessons happening in adjacent studios.
7. Instruments Available to Rent
For a very reasonable fee, students may rent most instruments needed to take music lessons including pianos, guitars, violins, ukuleles, trumpets, cellos, flutes, clarinets and saxophones. We also have among the best purchase option anywhere. 100% of your rental fees may be applied against 60% of the value of any instrument. This gives students the opportunity to try before they buy while learning on quality instruments.
8. Instruments, Accessories & Books
We are not just a music school. Although music lessons are our primary focus, we also provide students with the necessary tools they need, such as instruments, strings, lesson books, tuners and more. Everything you need to be able to learn all in one place. And if we don't have it here, special orders can be made fast and easy at no extra cost.
9. Located at Southdale Rd. and Jalna Blvd.
We are the closest music school to service the areas of Byron, Westmount, White Oaks, Old South, and even Pond Mills. We know there are students in the South that don't want to travel to the North end for their music lessons. While we would gladly serve students in other areas, this is where our roots are, and we are here for you.
10. Month to Month
Our music school does not require semester minimums for music lessons. We only want students who really want to be here and we will not commit you to a long-term contract.
