Ideally, you want to encourage your child to explore musical expression as soon as they begin to show interest. Music lessons fosters many skills for a child including creativity, cognitive ability, and fine motor skills. Children develop at their own pace so take advantage of Mississauga School of Music's complimentary intro to music lesson, where we will assess your child for readiness and help them along on the first steps of their musical journey.

We’ve developed an interactive and engaging online preschool music program involving play, singing, and movement. Play is essential to healthy childhood development and encourages children to embrace their imaginations. With this program, they will learn to recognize melodies, pitch, beat, and rhythm, preparing them to transition smoothly into our structured, one-on-one music lessons.

For formal, one-on-one music lessons, a good benchmark is five years of age. At this age, children are able to sit still and begin learning the foundations of music theory. Learning at an early age promotes self confidence, self discipline, and improved study skills and dexterity.

Of course, it’s never too late to learn. Mississauga School of Music also offers one-on-one music lessons for adult learners; we have many adult learners enrolled in piano, guitar, violin, cello, theory and vocal lessons. All you need is the desire to learn and we’ll have you on your way.
