About the Music Studio
Ed Lettner established The Music Studio in Etobicoke (Toronto) after graduating from the music program at Humber College. His goal was to combine his passion for teaching with the skills he gained through education and performance to provide a centre for excellence in traditional and contemporary music education. Ed chose The Music Studio’s motto, “Instruction by Professionals’, to convey his philosophy. The Music Studio began on a side street with four teachers. Today, home is a modern, energy-efficient facility in the Islington Village Plaza where 19 dedicated teachers welcome hundreds of students each week, reflecting the diversity of our community.
Children and adults of all ability levels may study Classical, Jazz, Popular and World music in a friendly learning environment. Students benefit from: personalized private instruction, an innovative ensemble program, performance opportunities and free recitals. Students are matched with teachers based on their musical requirements and personality, and prospective students may speak with teachers before registering. Their students receive top marks in music examinations, and receive awards and scholarships at music festivals. The Music Studio in Etobicoke (Toronto) supports school music programs by including students’ school music in their lessons. The Music Studio's Music in Motion Children's Program offers a stimulating and fun introduction to music for children 6 months to 7 years of age.
Customer service and value for money are also at the core of Ed’s philosophy. There is no registration fee at The Music Studio and their Instrument Discount Program helps new students begin their lessons. The convenient scheduling of lessons, and free music folders and lesson notebooks are more examples of how The Music Studio puts students first. Ed is proud that most of The Music Studio’s new students are referred by current students and school music teachers; a testament to the training and student-focused approach of the teachers, many of whom have been with The Music Studio for more than ten years.
The Music Studio in Etobicoke (Toronto) will continue to build on Ed’s philosophy by maintaining its focus on offering the best in music education with a personal touch as more exciting programs are added in the years to come.
