The first lesson is always a trial lesson.
If for any reason you are not happy we will fully refund any pending charges or help you find a new teacher. Your choice!
Lessons are tailored to suit each student's individual needs. Focus is on technique, theory and ear training, but with an emphasis on having fun and fostering creativity. Songwriting and composition can be woven into lessons for interested students! Many different styles of music taught, including classical, pop, musical theatre and jazz.
Teaming up with another private studio, we organise two student recitals per year at the very hip café Le Cagibi in Mile End, in order for our students to have the same performance experience that they would get at a music school.
Honours Bachelor of Music in Performance from the University of Toronto.
Ainsley McNeaney is a multi-faceted musician (piano, voice, percussion) with an Honours Degree in Music Performance from the University of Toronto. Now based in Montreal, she is an active singer-songwriter, composer, freelance musician and private music teacher.
Whereas musical enjoyment and happiness always comes first, students (and their guardians, for very young children) should commit to a regular practice routine between lessons in order to get the most out of our time together. :)
I am also available for clinics, group lessons, and for performances!
