Dear Student and Parents,
Happy New Year! Welcome to the 2013 winter session at the Canada Music Academy.
CMA Director with TSO Conductor, Peter Oundjian, Nov 2012
We hope your holiday was a safe and happy one, and that you had the opportunity to share some of your new musical achievements with family and friends! We also hope this year brings you a little closer to
your musical dreams and vision.
It is our goal to make sure you receive the best quality and support in your music education with our team of hand selected, award-winning certified music teachers. As one of Canada’s leading music schools we feel privileged to have introduced thousands of students of all ages to the joy of music and we are glad you have chosen us as your music school.
This year we recommit ourselves to supporting our community. With our Academy scholarship fund, and with instrument donations from our partner store, All You Need Music, we are committed to continue
Canadian Music Competition Winners with Gryphon Trio’s Jamie Parker
creating and supporting music programs in elementary schools and high-schools across Canada, and support parents and teachers who understand the value of music education in our children’s’ futures.
If you have an instrument you’d like to donate please contact us and we will make sure it goes to a young student in need.
We have supported the wonderful work of the Ottawa Children Treatment Centre, Children’s Wish Foundation, Tindale St. George amongst many other charity organizations helping youth in our cities. We are committed to continue supporting these efforts.
Arts and Youth Support
10 Time Grammy Award Winner George Benson Supports the CMA Scholarship Fund
We have worked with multi-Grammy award-winning musicians such as Bobby McFerrin and George Benson, and helped bring the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and Oliver Jones to smaller city audiences who normally would not have the opportunity to host artists of this caliber.
We also continue to support young professional musicians by giving them new opportunities to travel and perform across Canada.
We have supported inspirational learning opportunities for young musicians, including the Canadian Music Competition winners and Lion’s club winners, in collaboration with the Brockville Concert Association, the CMC and the Gryphon Trio.
We have created musical exchanges across Canada and supported Juno award winning musicians with performance and teaching opportunities through our school and our association with Canadian Jazz festivals such as the 1000 Islands Jazz Festival, of which our Director, is also the Chair. We work hard to keep music and music education alive and vibrant.
Helping You Get There: Affordable Instruments and Rentals
We have developed a wonderful program for instrument rentals in collaboration with our partner store, All You Need Music, giving our student the opportunity to rent instruments for as little as $15 per month, with the added benefit of applying the full 100% of your first three months to the purchase of your instrument should you decide to buy it.
We want to make sure you love your lessons, your instrument, and as a consequence, ensure your experience gives you years of musical enjoyment! Contact us for more information about rentals or your educational discounts.
Wishing you a happy and healthy 2013!
Your Canada Music Academy Team
