Professional, Accredited Private Music Lessons: Educational and Fun

When you decide to take music lessons for yourself or enroll your child, the really tough decision begins.

  • Are they good teachers?
  • Will my child be comfortable in this setting?
  • Will my child retain interest?
  • Should I buy an instrument right away?

Ryson’s has been teaching private music lessons in St.Catharines, Niagara for 70 years!  Piano lessons, Guitar lessons, Violin lessons, Brass and Woodwinds lessons, Drum lessons, Vocals and more are all offered at Ryson’s.

Before we sign you up and take your money, we answer your questions and help you become comfortable before you make your decision. How do we do this?

Anne meets with all prospective students and parents in a casual interview process which helps us to understand your objective in taking music lessons.  It also helps you to understand that music lessons can be a reasonable investment and successful results require a certain amount of commitment. Regular attendance and practice is the only way to truly learn for a lifetime of musical enjoyment.

Our private music lessons follow the teaching examination and accreditation of the University of Toronto’s Royal Conservatory of Music, which is the most highly regarded organization of it’s kind in the world.  Other accredited music conservatories are available upon the request of the student or parent.

At times our waiting area may seem like a social gathering. That’s because many times it is.  The interaction and relationships with our students and parents is what makes our job so enjoyable.

Welcoming third generation students to Ryson’s for their very first lesson to organizing Student Biands and arranging public venues for them to perform is what Anne enjoys.

We believe that it’s our job to provide engaging opportunities to have fun and learn at the same time. Our experience has shown that a child who’s enjoying the learning experience will achieve quicker and better results.

Our reward is watching the proud faces of the parents and children as they progress through the learning stages. There’s nothing like a proud parent watching a son or daughter perform in front of a live audience.
