Good afternoon students and families!
Wishing everyone a good start of June. We are excited and hope everyone continues to stay safe as things open up, and wish everyone well when embarking on travelling or trips.
This is a small reminder to everyone to please inform of any holiday requests moving forward as we get closer to summer. The sooner you do, the more accurate job we can do with billing and calculating the invoices.
Thank you everyone, and enjoy the rest of your day!

Good afternoon students and families!
We hope the wet weather the last few days has not dampened your spirits as the colder temperatures slowly make way for better patio days and outdoor activities.
For Royal Conservatory updates, Piano RCM books will be adjusting to their 2022 syllabus and books starting in June. Please note the older syllabus will only stay in effect for another year upon its new syllabus release. Please talk to your instructor for updates if necessary.
As usual, please reach out for any concerns or issues with the invoice. May all our mothers have a beautiful mother's day weekend.

Welcome to the season of Spring. We hope everyone gets their moments of sunshine as the city awakens from its slumber from the pandemic one step at a time.
Quick note that Royal Conservatory Examinations are once again being held in person starting in the month of May. If students are interested, be sure to talk with your instructor on how to apply and the differences going back from online to in-person. Please note that online exams will still be held for the time being, so students and teachers have a choice in the matter.

Royal Conservatory Exams have extended their online exams up to January (rather than November before). If students are planning to prepare for in-person exams with their instructors, please be advised to prepare for virtual exams for the time being for the season of January 2022.
We highly recommend the instructor and students doing an online mock exam to test the internet speeds at home, mic quality, and overall smoothness of the process.
Feel free to reach out if any elaboration is required.
