Waterloo Region's Finest Art Education Centre

Music Lessons in Waterloo Region

Whether you’re picking up an instrument just for fun, if you’re interested in Conservatory examinations, or even if you need help preparing for a University entrance audition, our friendly, talented teachers can help you reach your goals.

We accept students of all ages (you’re never too old to learn to sing or play an instrument!) and all ability levels.

All music lessons are private and individual, one-on-one with the teacher of your choice.

Since our private lesson schedule is not run according to any fixed term lengths, you are free to start or stop lessons at any time throughout the year, pending instructor availability.

In addition to private music lessons, we also offer the opportunity for many instrumentalists to form small chamber ensembles, with professional coaching. If you are interested, please let your instructor know and we’ll see what we can set up for you. This is a possibility for all string, woodwind, brass, and piano students.


We also offer a range of flute choirs for flute students (beginner / intermediate / advanced / adult). We own a full set of alternate instruments (including piccolo, Eb Soprano, Alto flute and Bass flute), which flute choir members have the opportunity to play. Flutists do not need to be taking private lessons at RSA to be eligible to perform with one of our flute choirs. Please contact us for more information.


We do not charge for cancellations, provided notice of cancellation is received 24 hours prior to the scheduled lesson; otherwise, the instructor is obligated to charge for the missed lesson. However, if the cancellation is due to illness, bad weather, or another unforeseeable reason – or if 24 hours notice has been given – we will credit the fee paid toward the following month’s lessons.

PLEASE NOTE: The intent of our flexible cancellation policy is to provide students and parents with a penalty-free way to cancel a scheduled lesson primarily for unusual or unforeseen circumstances. Instructors do have the right to charge for missed lessons if a student appears to be abusing this policy, or is repeatedly cancelling lessons for unacceptable reasons (“I am not prepared” is not an acceptable reason for a cancellation). At the instructor’s discretion, lessons may be terminated entirely. Please keep in mind that by repeatedly canceling a lesson, you are occupying a time slot that could be filled by a more reliable student, and taking income away from the instructor.
