“Only Everything”

I am not sure if you remember me, but I used to be a student at the Oakville Academy. Over the years I took piano, vocals and musical theater. I had many wonderful teachers including Rebecca and Anne. I wanted to share with you and everyone at the Oakville Academy that I have just released my first CD titled ” Only Everything”.

Thank you for running such a wonderful facility for students to learn music. I’m happy to say that all my lessons are paying off.

Another Happy Student

Posted by on Jul 5, 2013 in Testimonials | 0 comments

Our daughter started ballet classes at the Oakville Academy of the
Arts (OAA) when she was three. Thanks to a warm and caring faculty
who are constantly devising fun and intuitive ways to teach children
technique and musicality through play and different exercises, she
grew both in confidence and in her love of dance. She soon started
taking additional types of dance classes, attended the OAA March break
and summer camps, enrolled in music classes, and ultimately joined the
part-time competitive dance company. Her younger brother quickly
tired of just looking in the classroom windows. The OAA adeptly
incorporated a little boy into their dance and music classes – even if
he was technically a little too small to reach the pedals on the drums
- and made him feel at home in the classes and proud of what he
accomplished each week. The OAA has such a fabulous faculty it is
hard to imagine where they consistently find such engaging and
talented people who genuinely love what they do and are incredible
mentors for children, modelling inclusiveness, patience, and
encouragement.

We are very thankful we found a studio that focuses on nurturing the
development of the whole child – socially, emotionally, and
artistically. Seven years after that first ballet class, we have now
had the privilege of seeing our children perform with self-confidence
and pride at numerous dance recitals, music recitals, and even dance
competitions – each time with a beaming instructor standing right
beside them. We can’t think of a better environment in which to
develop skills and friendships that will benefit them and bring them
joy for many years to come.
