What People Are Saying
"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."

"Imagine Music is top notch! My daughter’s piano ability has sky rocketed since Jennifer became her teacher. She teaches her in a fun and supportive way. I highly recommend Imagine Music."
"I took voice lessons through Imagine Music Inc. for several years. I always had incredible instructors who challenged me and allowed me to grow as a vocalist. My time with Imagine Music gave me the confidence and skills to perform in various musical theatre productions and as an anthem singer for sporting events."
"Jennifer has been exceptional at guiding me to work on piano pieces, theory, and technical work that are at exactly the right level. I always leave my lesson feeling encouraged and energized! Many thanks!"

"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."

"Jennifer is an exceptional music teacher. Our daughter has flourished because of Jennifer’s thoughtful, gentle mentorship. We’ve noticed during Imagine Music recitals that the teachers are hugely enthusiastic, and students proudly perform the pieces THEY chose. By treating
students as equal partners in their growth as musicians, Jennifer and her team keep students engaged and keen to practice and play. We know our daughter’s love of music will last a lifetime!"

"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!"

"As an adult learner of piano, it can be intimidating to take lessons but Jennifer was able to cut through that fear with her gentle and encouraging approach. I have really enjoyed playing piano as a form of therapy and Jennifer has been able to make it a relaxing yet fun experience every time I am in the studio."
"Our daughter has taken violin lessons for several years now with Imagine Music. She has successfully completed her level 6 exams with honours! We are very happy with Imagine Music lessons. Highly recommend!"

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many, but some of the most significant include, improving note reading, understanding how to notate music on the staff and understanding chord progression and harmony. Music theory will help you better understand what you’re playing, expand your knowledge, and of course, help you master your instrument!

All musicians can benefit from learning music theory. However, most theory books are based from a piano perspective as the entire range of notes is available on the piano, making it easier to play, hear, and visualize. We offer piano lessons that can help you grasp music theory easier.

It depends on your musical goals and ambitions. But just like all other hobbies or passions, the more you learn about it, the better you’ll become!
