We personalize the lessons to respond to student’s specific needs, whether you’re a beginner or are simply looking to improve. Depending on your goals, we can offer you the opportunity of learning theory, different playing techniques, composition and stage presence.


Support materials:

We carefully selected books and varied methods perfectly suited to the student’s level in order to teach them how to read sheet music, chord diagrams, and musical notation.



Each WIMA studio is outfitted with quality accessories and equipment. You only have to bring your flute, sax, trumpet and your sheet music, and your smile! WIMA does not provide mouth pieces or reeds for hygiene purposes. 



In order to teach the musical basics while respecting the musicality of each student, we encourage them to show their teachers their favourite pieces and to choose the musical style that they would like to work on.

Malcolm is a Montreal-based saxophonist and pianist who specializes in jazz performance, as well as composition and arranging.

Malcolm had a foot in music his entire life, learning piano and clarinet at an early age, but he really started his musical journey at Royal West Academy where he first learned saxophone and played in the most prestigious wind orchestra/marching band there – Honour Band – as well as the resident jazz band. This is where jazz really captured his interest, and pushed him to move forward into the professional jazz performance program at Vanier College. There, he developed a passion for arrangement and composition. Vanier is also where Malcolm began tutoring other students, thereby starting his teaching career.

Malcolm went on to further study jazz performance at McGill University, where he received nearly a full scholarship upon entry.

Today, Malcolm practices multiple instruments (specializing in saxophone), and plays in several ensembles including an anime OST cover band. He has begun to branch out into music production as well.

Malcolm teaches in Pointe-Claire.
