Solidify your foundation with theory and history
Theory is incorporated into both Voice and Piano lessons on a practical level as part of our scaffolding approach to teaching. Because theory, harmony, analysis, and history are essential when preparing for RCM exams at levels 5 through ARCT, separate lessons are also available for focused instruction.
Lecture-style lessons include workbook exercises and quiz
Prior material reviewed ongoing to ensure depth of understanding
Practice exams provide complete process for the well-prepared exam student
Music History lessons for advanced RCM
Music History lessons are structured in such a way they:
correspond to RCM History 9, 10 and ARCT levels
expand the lecture-style presentation with a listening component of required music
incorporate exam preparation skills by using charts and quizzes

What Else Students Are Saying
Henry Van Dyke
O Music, lead the way —
The stormy night is past,
Lift up our hearts to greet the day,
And the joy of things that last.
The dissonance and pain
That mortals must endure,
Are changed in thine immortal strain
To something great and pure.
True love will conquer strife,
And strength from conflict flows,
For discord is the thorn of life
And harmony the rose.
