Thank you for your interest in Music Teachers on the Go! This unique music school was founded in September 2010 with the intention of making quality music lessons accessible and affordable for busy families in the Greater Vancouver area. I’ve recently had my second child and very quickly realized that having small children is a full time job in itself! I found that I had very little time for anything else (e.g. driving them to different activities, especially in rush hour traffic). However, having a background in both music and elementary education, I was fully aware of exactly how important those activities (especially music lessons!) were.
Studies have shown that educational benefits of music lessons have an expanding effect beyond just learning how to play an instrument. Theyfacilitate brain development and cognitive skills from young to old and can really play an important factor in a child becoming a rounded and successful person. Furthermore, to be successful with music lessons, it usually takes a lot of discipline, and that discipline can transfer to the skills necessary to be successful academically. Things like study skills, cognitive skills and communication skills can all be improved with the addition of music lessons.
That’s what prompted me to start Music Teachers on the Go. With Music Teachers on the Go, all lessons are taught in the convenience of your own home by our experienced teachers. We offer lessons to students of all ages and levels on a weekly or flexible schedule. We hope that you find all of the information that you need on our website. Please contact us if we can assist you further. We look forward to hearing from you!
