The Ottawa Music Academy first opened its doors on November 1st 1989 and the opening of the Kanata Music Academy followed on August 1st 1993. Since, both schools have been providing the surrounding communities with musical knowledge and merchandise. We offer both private and group lessons in a variety of instruments.

Our staff is dedicated to promoting a positive musical learning experience to students of all ages. Our teachers are highly qualified and versatile. Students choosing to be trained classically are encouraged to take exams from the Royal Conservatory of Music or the Trinity College of London. However, there are also plenty of learning opportunities for students who enjoy other styles of music, such as pop and jazz and rock.

In addition to lessons, the Academies each have a wide selection of music books, accessories, and instruments, with a 10% discount for students.
