WHAT WE TEACH:
Babies (age 0 - 12m)
You and your baby will dance, sing and move to the music in this class. Scarves, shakers, drums and other age-appropriate instruments are used to introduce babies to rhythm and music. Your teacher will use the piano, ukulele and sing songs to get the music flowing. At the end of the term, you and your baby will have a repertoire of songs you can sing together and you will feel more comfortable making music together at home.
Toddlers (age 12- 36m)
Toddlers will be introduced to more rhythm and melody to further their musical knowledge. Shakers, drums and other age-appropriate instruments will be used to get toddlers making their own music. The piano, ukulele and singing will also be introduced to help facilitate learning songs. At the end of the term, your toddler will have a firm grasp on inner rhythm and you will have both skills and songs to sing and exercise at home.
Toddlers & Tots (age 8-36m)
Toddlers and tots are introduced to music and rhythm together through movement, live music and making music themselves. Shakers, drums and other age-appropriate instruments will be introduced as well as the piano, ukulele and singing to facilitate learning songs. At the end of the term, your child will have a firm grasp on inner rhythm and melody, and you will have both skills and songs to sing and exercise at home.
Here is what other parents are saying about music lessons at Willowdale School of Music:
The school and the teachers teach how to enjoy playing while also teaching skill. My daughter plays with confidence and is joyful in her music lessons!
Love the Willowdale School of Music! My daughter started virtual singing lessons last year and eagerly waits for classes. The teachers are not only friendly towards the children but also have a very wide and deep knowledge of Music, singing and instruments. We just signed her up for piano lessons as well because she loves the lessons so much.

We acknowledge that the land on which we live and work is the ancestral lands of various Indigenous Peoples and that we live on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe, Chippewa and Wendat, in the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee to peaceably share and care for the territory around the Great Lakes, all newcomers are invited into this Covenant. This territory is also covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. Today, the meeting place of Toronto (Haudenosaunee 'Tkaronto') is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and live in this territory.
