At WIMA, each student will benefit from a personal approach based on their goals, whether they are at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level. Fun is the heart of our philosophy, and we integrate it into all of our lessons while imparting our knowledge and passion for music to our students. Our teachers work with pieces chosen by the student and adapted to suit their level. Students will also have the opportunity to play one of their favourite pieces at the end-of-session recital.
Our teachers use creative methods and books that perfectly correspond to the level of the student and respond to their objectives. Students will learn how to read sheet music, chord diagrams, and musical notation at their own pace.
Each WIMA studio is outfitted with quality accessories and equipment. Just bring your violin, your sheet music, and your energy!
