Each private lesson is tailored to the individual student's needs. Our most popular program is our one hour music lessons starting at only $29.95, which includes a 30 minute private lesson and a theory class. A proven successful approach that includes theory in a different setting, especially designed for students with A.D.D. and other needs. Synergy is one of the few academies that offers theory as part of the regular lesson!

The aim of our program is to grow an appreciation and love of music and performance, while furthering our students’ knowledge of proper technique and skill. Our music teachers are highly qualified, holding an array of accreditations and teaching certifications.

Advanced students and RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music) 60 minute Exam Certification Program is divided into segments. Repertoire and studies preparation is private. Theory, technique and ear training is semi-private. You will never need to attend a separate theory class on a different day and pay extra. Every student works towards gaining a strong foundation that helps them succeed further faster.  
 
Student social interaction, with others who share their passion, is facilitated through events such as music games day, composition, picture day, performance opportunities and many more. 


Group classes are available for ages 5-13 in piano, guitar, voice & drums. Courses are 8 weeks long. *Please note that guitar students will need their own instrument.

Beginner Piano Lessons
Each student has the opportunity to perform in any of our recitals & festivals throughout the year - including SynergyFest! Our very own adjudicated festival - offering scholarships and awards for all their hardwork. 
My son has been with Synergy for 9 years, learning piano and now cello, and has progressed amazingly due to the dedicated and encouraging teachers. They prepared him for his RCM exams which he exceeded in and all the staff are warm and friendly. Synergy is also very organized and professional and provide a variety of opportunities for performances and individual growth. The teachers communicate students' progress to parents consistently and the atmosphere is very motivational.
