In Milton, Ontario since 2004, teachers at Bel Canto School of Music have helped hundreds of students achieve their musical goals through highest quality, one on one instruction.
For our students of all levels, these goals include working towards RCM (Royal Conservatory of Music) exams in voice, piano, and theory, preparing for auditions, festivals and competitions, song-writing, releasing albums and performing live. Many (both current students and graduates) have enjoyed commercial success on stage, the internet, radio and TV.
