"I am LOVING this 😊. I’m sure if someone was to sneak downstairs while I’m playing (practicing) to my favourite tunes…they’d see me there with a huge smile. Peter is a great teacher and I’m enjoying learning."

"My teacher Jasmin and the school owner Jennifer have always been supportive and helpful. I've grown a lot in over a year of piano lessons and become more enthusiastic about the subject. I'm glad I'm taking lessons at this school!"
"Not coming from a musical background I have always been a bit intimidated by this space. Jennifer at Imagine Music has been very approachable, excited about anyone learning music, super encouraging of our venture into violin lessons for our 9-year-old.
Hannah Mortensen, our child's teacher is a great role model, and very encouraging. This music school celebrates music learning at any level."

"My 11 year old daughter Cindy has taken private piano and vocal lessons with Marilyn since she was 4. Marilyn is a wonderful and talented instructor with very effective teaching methods. She is very patient and caring to her students. She specializes in piano
and vocal lessons to fit students' needs. Marilyn and Cindy not only work on technique but also theory, musicality, and effective practicing. The thing I like most about Marilyn is she has a genuine love of music and she inspires Cindy to enjoy music as she does. She also makes the lessons fun, so Cindy is motivated to practice all the time. Thanks to Marilyn's positive and encouraging teaching style, lessons are always enjoyable!"

Frequently Asked Questions

Without the bass – there won’t be any music! The bass creates the rhythmic foundation of a song (the consistent pulse of the piece) while supporting the harmony of other instruments, such as guitar or saxophone. Studying bass means learning rhythm and harmony, vitally important elements of any song.

Not at all! You can never be too old to learn the bass! Learning bass is simple and great for beginners as you understand the importance of setting up music through tones and melody. We teach bass to students as young as 7 to as old as 60! We can help you get started with online, in studio or in home lessons.

Even though they look similar, the bass has four strings to the guitar’s six, with the focus very much on creating a foundation to establish the song. The bass is also a bit bigger, but that shouldn’t deter you from playing it!

Ultimately you should be comfortable doing either one. Plenty of people rotate between the two, depending on the type of music they’re playing. We encourage both forms and will be happy to teach you the method that you’re most comfortable with.
