education is the process of discovery that invites truth and infinite possibilities into one's world
The first things to ask ourselves, whether a parent, a teacher or a student, are what education means and what is its purpose? The questions seem straightforward enough at first, but the answers to them can get complex. What matters most, is for the teachers, parents and students to be on the same page in regards to our answers. Our aim is to agree on our definition.
As a society, we have gotten through different time periods and yet the concept of education has stayed with us as a powerful weapon. At each point of our history, people made decisions on what should be taught to the new generation and how it should be done. Education could mean preparation of the new generation for a specific career, the transfer of cultural values, the general disciplining and code of conduct, or the exploration of new ideas and the notion of independent and critical thinking.
Times change, but music continues to remain one of the biggest universal interests. The challenge is – where and how to embark on the journey of musical education.
Of course, there are many reputable schools and academies here in Toronto that do a great service to their students and instructors. At the same time, picking the right music teacher (and music school) from among hundreds of existing ones is difficult task.
Dear students, parents, friends and fellow enthusiasts:
Today we start contributing to our blog – to share with you our thoughts on education, relevant news, updates about our academy and interesting stories. This blog will also allow you to add your voice and ideas to our ongoing conversation about education.
We are living in a time when many organizations are lacking the personal touch and the individualistic approach. We aim to differ, as we deeply care about our approach to each one of our students, about their journey of discovery and many successes.
That’s why, I'd like to start this conversation with a personal introduction.
