New Venue for Instrumental Lessons

By | News

Exciting News!

Wilton Academy of Music will be moving all Private Instrumental Lessons to our new venue!

This spring, as of April 23rd, all instrumental lessons in piano, guitar and violin will be held at St John’s Parish Hall located at 816 Spadina Cres, in the building directly behind St John’s Anglican Cathedral.  We will have access to 3 lesson rooms in the lower floor of the building – watch for our signs.

We have been so thankful for the great lesson space that MCH has provided for us over the past few years, and we will continue to hold our early childhood Saturday morning classes there.  However, the increasing demand for our private instrumental lessons has created a huge need for more space.  We are SO excited for what St. John’s has to offer as we continue to grow:

  • More rooms, solely for our use – This means a broader range of times and days available for regular lessons, allowing us to accommodate more students on our ever-growing wait list.
  • High quality pianos – We will have the space and means to provide excellent instruments for our students and instructors to enjoy.
  • Central and secure location – Easy access, right in the heart of the city, providing an extensive security system and comfortable waiting area for students.

Your lesson teacher will provide detailed instructions regarding security code entrance and parking and help to address any questions/concerns you might have.
