Mississauga School of Music (MSoM) started from humble beginnings. In 1988 Jenny Goh, a piano instructor for well over 33 years, realized her dream of opening a music school in Mississauga. She wanted to raise the standard of Mississauga music lessons, and offer lessons taught by highly qualified, professional instructors with Music Degrees. Jenny set out to form a music school, dedicated to providing high-level, performance-based training, that she had received at the prestigious Shanghai Conservatory.
Recognition As Mississauga's Top Music School
Through the inspiration and dedication of teachers, students and parents, Mississauga School of Music is a six-time winner of the #1 Music School category by Readers' Choice (Mississauga News). We are also honoured to be a four-time winner of the Consumer Choice Award. Our achievements are a result of offering one-on-one, comprehensive music lessons based on the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum, to the community of Mississauga, and surrounding areas of Oakville, Brampton and Milton for over 30 years.
We are proud of our students' achievements which have been showcased at multiple music festivals:
Peel Music Festival
Kiwanis Music Festival
Milton Music Festival
York Region Music Celebration
Rotary Burlington Music Festival
Davenport Festival of Music
North York Music Festival
Odin International Music Competition
Our students have excelled at these music festivals resulting in Provincial Winners, Provincial Finalists, Platinum or Gold Medalists, and music scholarships.
Quality Over Quantity is Our Motto
Our music school places a premium on the quality of teaching over the quantity of music teachers which keeps the number of music teachers small and ensures that the quality of teaching remains exceptionally high.
Our music teachers have a diverse range of experience in music education, teaching and performance. They are essential to ensuring that students have a solid foundation when learning to play an instrument. This will prevent having to unlearn bad habits and will accelerate their progress in the long run.
Helping Students Reach Their Full Potential
Helping students reach their full potential is key to our success. This is most notable in our students' Top RCM Exam Scores in Ontario and Canada, including coveted National RCM Gold Medals and Provincial RCM Gold Medals (awarded to students with the Highest RCM Exam Scores in Canada and Ontario). Students at Mississauga School of Music have won National and Regional RCM Gold Medals in Piano, Guitar, Flute and Violin.
Most importantly, we do our best to nurture a love for music in our aspiring musicians. Many former students choose to study music at the academic level and receive admission to universities across the country.
Mississauga School Music (MSoM) has over 45 first-class, dedicated and experienced music teachers with formal training: including those with PhD, Master and Bachelor Degrees in Music, International Competition Winners, Ontario Registered Music Teachers, and RCM Affiliated Teachers. The majority have been teaching at Mississauga School of Music for 25-33+ years.
