Our mission at Oakville In-Home Music is to offer all the benefits of a professional music school in the comfort of your own home. Like many in-home music programs we are NOT a referral service. Oakville In-Home Music is a division of the Oakville Academy of Music. Our teachers are the same professional instructors that teach at the Oakville Academy of Music. Choosing to take lessons with us means that you will get all the benefits that Academy students have been getting for the past 25 years. A few of those benefits include: Free all inclusive recitals twice a year, the Musical Ladder System, and unlimited make up classes that never expire.
When you finally get home, you can stay home
Tired of driving the kids to their activities all week after fighting rush hour traffic? Now you can just stay home instead and let our teachers come to you. Take your time making supper and enjoy that extra quality time with your family. At least one day a week.
If you need anything you can call, email, text, or stop by and see us at 1026 Speers Rd. Seven days a week! Like many in-home lesson providers we are NOT a referral service. Oakville In-Home Music is a division of the Academy of Music so you will get the same great teachers, programs, and benefits that the Academy has offered for 25 years.
Since 1994 the Academy of Music has been a leader in music education having taught thousands of students from young children though to adults in Oakville Ontario. Our in-home program is currently for piano, guitar, and ukulele, as they are the most popular instruments we offer.
Highly qualified teaching staff
Our music teachers have received their education from institutions such as York University, Western University, Humber College, Mohawk College, University of Toronto, and the Royal Conservatory of Music. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of Canada and the US, and have years of experience in teaching and performing. They are also picked for their friendly and warm personalities. All of our teachers strive to get to know each student and their parents personally, and to become familiar with your personal musical goals.
Free music recitals twice a year
Want to know how your child is doing and if they are really learning? One of the best ways for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital.
Twice every year many of our students choose to perform in our recitals. We hold these at a beautiful venue with a grand piano, and all the equipment necessary to make you sound great. The recitals are held right here in Oakville so you don’t have to travel for a world class recital experience.
These recitals are free for our students and unlike many schools in Oakville we do not charge for recital participation or admission fees.
The Musical Ladder System
We are the only music school in Oakville that gives their students the opportunity to earn special colour wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests. Do other schools offer prizes and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students by giving them full colour, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Musical Ladder is our unique method of music education that you can only get here.
More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Musical Ladder here.
Making a Difference in Our Community
Through various Oakville Academy of Music programs we have already raised over $27,000 for Food4Kids Halton. Food4Kids provides packages of healthy food for kids aged 4-14 years with limited or no access to food each weekend. Packages of healthy food are prepared by volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday to ensure children have nourishment over the weekend.
