Yamaha Music School

Innovative music lessons and classes from beginner through advanced for children, teens, and adults.



As a former Yamaha student currently studying Music and Concurrent Education at Queen’s University, I doubt I’d be here if it weren’t for the solid musical foundation I received from Yamaha. I was involved in Yamaha programs from the ages of 3-16, and the Yamaha teaching method was instrumental in developing my musicianship. In addition, part of what inspired me to go into Concurrent Education was working as a practice coach– it was an amazing experience to get to work with young children and help them learn.

Achilles has grown from a little boy who had to climb to the bench to play his piano to a teenager who is composing his own music. Yamaha played a fundamental role in making music a part of his life. As a parent, there are no words to express how much I’ve enjoyed watching him exploring his learning journey under Yamaha’s guidance. I can’t thank the school enough for enriching our lives in such an important and beautiful way.

Mr. (George) Heldt is an excellent teacher: patient, friendly, and smart.

Junior Original Concert is the best thing any Yamaha student can have, what a rich performing experience it is for a child in that tender age. We still remember and appreciate all the good things everybody at Yamaha did for us. It was 10 years of fun and excellent learning experience for my daughter; something she’ll remember and cherish for the rest of her life. We still talk about it once in a while and she feels that her ties are still strong with Yamaha as she still goes to the school for lessons every Saturday when she’s not racing as a competitive swimmer.

Testimonial for Ms. Ruby: We love the Yamaha curriculum and think that you are a fantastic teacher. I agree with you about the Ear Training program. Grace has really improved her pitch recognition this year. She is able to play piano on her own and it is often the first thing she does when she wakes up or gets home from school. Thank you for giving her a great start in music.
You offer a unique experience with playing ensembles and performing for the class often that private lessons cannot offer. Also, Jeff (Greenway) has taught my daughter how to come up with chords to match a melody.

Very happy with Ms. (Makiko) Mori. She loves children and she is a natural teacher, very passionate about music, too. Very lucky to have her teach (my daughter). We were thinking of switching to private lessons in our home, but will stay on because of Ms. Mori.

Dear Richard (Stewardson), I would like to express my very deepest gratitude for your thoughtfulness and concern teaching David these last few years. He has enjoyed it a lot, and I think you’ve had a very positive influence on him during an important time in his life. I cannot thank you enough for all your help.

Craig: It’s not just about learning to enjoy music, it gives the children the ability to think, finish what they start, and try new things. I can see that at Yamaha, each step they grow, they gain self-confidence and it’s very enjoyable. – excerpt from interview in Torja Magazine, Nov 2011, pg 36.

Akira: We sometimes make our own music pieces and when we have no idea how to do it, our teacher never tells us “do it like this” or gives us the answer. That’s why we have to think of it ourselves and learn ourselves. I have to think really hard and come up with my own music. I really, really have to use my head but I learn a lot of new things so I like it. It’s like a treasure hunt and going on a mission to find it. It makes me happy.
