What We Teach

We apply an innovative approach to learning that combines traditional theory and technique with highly modern, fresh, and creatively focused ideas. As a student of music, your child will be provided the time and resources to work and learn closely with our dedicated musical teachers while enjoying numerous performance opportunities to grow. Your child will also benefit from a range of diverse and challenging classes that will be available to them. We teach more than music. Orrett Music Academy’s music lessons in Etobicoke encompass our holistic learning approach.

Our main goal is to instill a love of music that will last a lifetime. Our professional music teachers provide regular verbal and documented feedback to parents.

Pitch Perfect


Voice students can learn classical, pop, jazz, music theatre, or a combination of styles. Lessons emphasize vocal range, expression, proper breathing and warm-ups, as well as microphone and performance techniques.

A Start in the Right Direction


The ukulele is an excellent warm-up instrument for eventual guitar or bass lessons as it is much easier on the fingers, and faster to learn!

Long-Lasting Beauty


One of the greatest instruments for young children to learn is the violin. The violin influences students to find the right pitch using their ears and is invaluable to young budding musicians, proven to stay with them for the rest of their lives.
