Private, one-on-one lessons in a variety of disciplines with professional and highly skilled multi-instrumentalist educators.

Teachers are dedicated, passionate, accountable and punctual and ensure that every half hour consists of review and new challenges for their students. Every BMA staff member and substitute teacher are required to pass a Level 3 Vulnerability Police Sector Check.

BMA policies are flexible and fair with required monthly commitment only. Administrators are dedicated to emailing you multiple make up lesson options daily for when you are too busy or ill to attend, with fair and flexible deadlines. We are organized and dedicated to serving you.

The majority of our piano teachers are trained in the RCM program themselves and have access to resource binders and training guides to ensure that all students are receiving quality and diverse lessons by teachers who are always learning and developing.

We have 3 high quality Yamaha uprights, a beautiful Young Chang upright, a weighted Kuwai ES6 and Korg digital pianos for band rehearsals and shows, and a Bergmann baby grand piano. Studios are equipped with eco-friendly Audimute acoustical panels to reduce reflected sound and dampen echo and reverberation.

Performance opportunities for all students, including our biannual concerts in December and June at Cedarview Alliance Theatre which is a professional, 700 seat auditorium, as well as our coffeehouses for soloists and bands at The Heart and Crown in Barrhaven which occur 3 times per year.

Our popular Tuneful Tots Early Music Education Program, designed by early education teaching professionals for young students aged 3 to 5.

The BMA Junior Choir, Barrhaven's only choir for students aged 9 to 12, built to enhance their vocal techniques, performance skills, musical ear and become better singers overall at a very affordable flat monthly rate.

The BMA Primary Choir, for young aspiring singers ages 6 to 8, designed to improve language and verbal skills, improve memory and instil a love for singing and learning at a very affordable flat monthly rate.

The BMA Band Program, for a variety of levels and ages, built to improve technical skill, ability to keep tempo and play accurate rhythms in a variety of styles, develop improvisational and soloing skills as well as stage presence and being an effective team player. Not to mention, all bands are coached on how to write their own originals.

Our vision for all students - young and mature, beginner through advanced - is to learn, create and innovate through the gift of music. Anyone and everyone is welcome to the BMA family!
