About Us

Welcome to the Avenue Road Music & Performance Academy – where music comes to life.

We're a registered charity with a passion for spreading the enchantment of music to people of all ages and backgrounds. Situated in the heart of Toronto in a charming heritage building, our academy is dedicated to providing access to the joys of learning and playing music.

Our exceptional faculty is ready to help you on your musical journey. They customize lessons to align with your individual goals and desires because, let's be honest, one size does not fit all when it comes to music education.

We're not just about lessons; join us for our in-house concert series, and adult masterclasses by internationally acclaimed artists and educators. We are the proud home of the Gordon Lightfoot Concert Hall, and Gordon Lightfoot's own grand piano, generously donated to support our mission.
