I am an Teacher with 50 years experience . I am the Principal and Owner of Neighbourhood Music Studio, a private music school in Bowmanville, operating since 1996. My teaching staff and I welcome students of all ages and levels.
For very young children age birth to 5, a wonderful early years music program, that includes the caregiver, is offered that is quintessential for any young child’s development and rounded education. Instrument group lessons are a great start to bonding with the instrument of choice. Small groups assure continuity, camaraderie and progression.
Private or Semi Private lessons are offered in recreational studies or enriched accreditation programs through formal examinations.
NMS offers a pedagogical style that allows students to enjoy, focus and attain a high level of performance. Qualified professional teachers offer supportive coaching, training students to be creative in order to nurture their own passion for music. Teaching methods and lesson planning is tailored to students’ individual needs, enabling them to achieve their highest potential.
Let the music begin.
