Why Midtown Music School?

Music doesn’t fit into a square box, so why should music lessons? Our school takes a fun, relevant and modern approach to music with lessons tailored to the student’s individual needs. From classical to jazz, RCM Exams to songwriting, school credits and auditions to Kiwanis festivals, our students’ results and achievements speak for themselves…

Toronto Marlies Partnership

Midtown Music School is proud to announce our new partnership with the Toronto Marlies Hockey Club! The Marlies have a long history of developing professional talent to prepare players for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL. (Sounds a little bit like what we do in music!) We have a lot of excitement coming up with Marlies - including some potential performance opportunities for all our students! Stay tuned, we have much more to announce in the coming weeks...

Welcome Cello Teacher Amahl Arulanandam!

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of Amahl Arulanandam to our incredible faculty here at MTMS! Amahl brings with him a wealth of teaching and performing experience. He is an avid fan of all musical genres (and we mean all) and is an active participant in Toronto's vibrant New Music scene. You can read more about his amazing work on his bio page. Please say hello to him when you see him in our halls. Welcome, Amahl!

Something to Brag About

"This time last year, I wasn't even planning to pursue university for music immediately after high school, and when I changed my mind you were committed to preparing me for auditions. I don't have to remind you that I wouldn't have made it into any university for music without support and guidance from you."

On May 15, Midtown Music School celebrated its sixth anniversary. We are incredibly proud of the impact we have had on so many people's lives throughout the years, and look forward to sharing our music with many more people to come. This year in particular we had four students successfully audition for post-secondary music schools. One of them, Gabriel, wrote about his experience with us. While we don't necessarily want to brag about ourselves, this review summarizes everything we strive to achieve. Here's the review (original can be found here):

Raising Money for Holland Bloorview

We have always tried to give back to the community whenever possible. As such, Midtown Music School is pleased to participate in Holland Bloorview’s Capes for Kids campaign! This fun fundraiser involves someone (in this case, David Stone) dressing in a cape for an entire week to raise money for Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. It’s all about being a hero for kids with physical challenges, be they born with them or rehabilitation. This amazing facility has touched many lives – including our family – so please consider donating towards this amazing cause. (Donations over $10 are eligible for a tax receipt.) Also, as an added bonus: Anyone who donates $50 or more will be entered into a draw for a free one-hour private lesson with David for anything he can teach!

You can donate online by clicking this link. Thank you for your support!
