LESSONS & PROGRAMS

Music is so much more than simply learning to play an instrument. It also has the power
to aid in the development of intellect, ability to focus, stress relief, self confidence,
emotional recognition within speech, and of course self fulfillment.

Piano lessons

Whether you want to learn Bach or Bruno Mars, our piano teachers teach a variety of styles ranging from classical to popular music. Our piano faculty will help you learn the fundamentals of sight reading, technique, composition, theory and more while incorporating your favourite songs into the lessons.

Violin & Strings

As the Canadian music scene embraces the fiddle/violin this instrument is becoming a very popular choice at our music school, appealing to students of all ages! Our violin instructors can help you get ready for anything from playing in an orchestra to playing in a folk band.

Guitar & Bass

Our guitar instructors can teach you rock, blues, metal, classical guitar, or whatever style you want to learn. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that you are challenged with new technical or theory concepts, while also customizing each lesson to your guitar goals.

Choir & Programs

Here at the Nepean School of Music, we have two choir programs. Our Glee Club program is a non-auditioned group for young singers ages 7-12 who are interested in singing and performing popular music. Our newest choir, the Chinese Children’s Choir, is open to students of all backgrounds, aged 7-14. This choir is for students looking to explore Chinese songs and theory, while also learning and practicing some new Mandarin language skills.

We also offer our band programs designed to provide students with a community of like-minded musicians looking to take the next step and join a band. Check out the Band Program page for more information on how you can get involved!
