We Finally Found a Great New Location for our Georgetown Academy!
We are super excited to announce that we found the perfect location for our new Georgetown studio. St. Andrew’s Church has been very good to us and now it’s time to move on. Over the past year and a half our school’s enrollment has doubled and we’ve outgrown our current space at the church. The new location is 400 Guelph St. unit 1 (pictured right) and is only a 4 minute drive from St. Andrew’s.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for allowing us to be your music lesson provider and sticking with us during our growing pains at the church. Renovations will begin soon and we plan to move in December. Stay tuned for more on the progress!
Celebrating Student Achievement
The Academy of Music in Georgetown is the only music school in the area to give their students the
opportunity to earn cool colour wristbands (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for completing musical challenges. No other school inspires their students with smiling faces by giving them full colour, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.
More importantly when our students have a challenge coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their
teachers are proud, and everybody wins! Here are some of our recent achievers:
Left: Piano student Emma just earned her Songbird with her teacher Melanie! Center: Piano student Olivia just earned her Prodigy, that’s HUGE! Left: Guitar student Julian earned his Rockstar, his siblings beside him!
Did you know the Academy of Music has a 35 member Celtic fiddle orchestra? Every Wednesday evening the orchestra meets at St. Cuthbert’s Church in Oakville to rehearse and prepare for their annual fundraising concerts. These concerts are held twice a year and all the proceeds go to Food4Kids. Food4Kids provides packages of healthy food for kids aged 4-14 years with limited or no access to food each weekend. Packages of healthy food are prepared by volunteers and delivered to schools each Friday to ensure children have nourishment over the weekend. There are 400 children in Halton (Oakville, Milton, Georgetown) struggling through each weekend without food.
The OCFO’s 10th Anniversary Christmas Concert is on Saturday December 2nd and it’s going to be awesome! Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids under 12. You can buy them at the Oakville Academy. Or call either office. Cash donations are also welcome. Last year alone we raised over $7500 and every dollar went straight to Food4Kids!
