What We Do
At The Melody In Me we help parents who want to bring the joy, confidence and life skills that come from learning music, into their child’s life, in a fun, challenging and supportive environment.
“As a teacher, my biggest joy is seeing my students grow not only their musical skills, but also watching them grow into more confident people through their musical journey” – Margot Hamilton, Owner
At the Melody In Me, we believe that everyone has the potential to develop musical talents and succeed in their musical journey if they are enjoying what they are doing. Our programs are designed to train and develop students of all levels from beginner to advanced in a relaxed, but professional setting. Each private lesson is tailored to meet the needs of the individual student and our group classes are designed in a way that both beginner and more advanced students have the chance to grow and develop.
While the specific method books used can vary from teacher to teacher, at our studio the process is the same. The classes are relaxed and friendly, but at the same time they are structured to build a solid foundation in technique, theory and performance skills. The Kindermusik program is a wonderful program for not only developing a musical foundation, but also for working to develop the whole child. Group classes are designed to challenge and develop all levels and abilities. All of the voice and piano teachers are qualified to prepare students for Conservatory exams as well as post-secondary studies, if needed. In Guitar lessons we teach note reading and theory as well as chord structures to be able to play popular songs.
Our goal at The Melody In Me is to foster a life-long relationship between our students and the performing arts. Not everyone will be a professional singer or actor, but we believe that music and the performing arts are an essential part of a well balanced life. Whether our students grow to be professional music makers or music appreciators, if they continue their relationship with music through their life, we have done our job!
We offer private piano lessons (age 5 & up), guitar lessons (age 7 & up) and voice lessons (age 9 & up) in a variety of styles. Our professional but friendly environment is sure to help your child succeed!
We have drama and musical theatre classes for young and old; including Musical Theatre for Kids (ages 6-10), The Musical Theatre Intensive Program (ages 10-18) and Acting for Adults (ages 18+)
Based on over 30 years of research in childhood development, this wonderful music and movement program is a delight for young children and their caregivers. Programs are offered for ages 1 month through 7 years.
Our summer Musical Theatre Triple Threat camps are sure to bring out the star in your child! We offer 2 age ranges: Junior Camp (ages 6-10) and Senior Camp (ages 10-14). In this week of fun, we spend time singing, dancing, acting and doing crafts. Small class sizes ensure that each camper receives personalized attention.
