What I 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
I believe that everyone has the potential to develop musical talents and succeed in their musical journey if they are enjoying what they are doing. My program is 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 depending on the student’s needs, at my 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. I am qualified to prepare students for Conservatory exams as well as post-secondary studies, if needed.
My goal is to foster a life-long relationship between my students and the performing arts. Not everyone will be a professional singer or actor, but I believe that music and the performing arts are an essential part of a well balanced life. Whether my students grow to be professional music makers or music appreciators, if they continue their relationship with music through their life, I have done my job!
