We are a family music school owned by a local couple and staffed by some of the best minds in music. Our goal is to spread our love of music and help each student tap into the hidden artistic potential that lies within them. We offer a diverse range of classes and programs, each expressly tailored to a student’s skill level and desired outcome.
At Neighbour Note, we believe that music can change lives for the better. Enjoying the journey together with learning a fulfilling skill is the ultimate goal; but there is so much more to it than that.
Studying music at a later stage in life can reduce stress, anxiety, blood pressure, and feelings of loneliness. It can also improve memory, mental processing, concentration, and reasoning skills. Through music, seniors can reap the rewards of these positive lasting mental and physical health benefits.
We teach all ages, including adults, seniors, teens, and children as young as four years of age.
Yes! There are a minimum of four student recitals per year.
We offer lessons in rock, pop, folk, blues, classical, jazz, and heavy metal.
Yes we do. We teach basic song writing techniques such as texture, form, continuity, and development. Students learn to write numerous different chord progressions, themes, motives, riffs and licks. They also are taught how to compose and improvise using a wide variety of scale and scale forms, as well as diatonic, secondary, and quartal chords.
Our music and guitar lessons in Toronto are centred around innovative instruction methods with a focus on the key tenements of music: discipline, study, and experimentation.
Music is a holistic experience. Immersion is the key to mastery. With our summer camps, programs, and events, we create a complete musical framework that helps each student unlock new doors to life experiences.
It’s rare to find a music school that conducts in-depth research on music and its effect on the mind. We don’t just post popular articles—we examine studies that relate music with cognitive learning and joyfulness, and then implement them in our lessons. The beauty of our teaching methods is that students don’t even realize they’re learning—they are too busy having a blast!
