“Where words fail, music speaks.”

~Hans Christian Anderson


We offer private lessons in banjo, banjolele, drums, guitar, keyboard, piano, ukulele, violin, and voice. All of our music classes are taught by accomplished, practicing musicians who love teaching.

We are also willing to accommodate your needs and provide semi-private classes in any of the above instruments at half the cost, provided that you find a person to take the class with you or your child. We recognize that semi-private lessons can provide a more affordable option for learning an instrument, as well as an excellent structure for learning rhythm and tempo, but we also know that private classes allow students to progress at their own speed and benefit from the one-on-one attention of an instructor, so we leave the choice and the price up to you.

We are also pleased to have a top-notch children & youth choir as part of our academy. Be sure to check out our choir page for more details…

Space is limited in all of our instrumental classes, so be sure to sign up early by emailing info@westviewartsacademy.ca
