Synth/Keyboard Lessons

Want to do more than just play the piano? Our synth/keyboard lessons let you experience complete creative control over your music!

With your piano teacher, you will be able to explore your keyboard and push your abilities past the limit. A synthesizer keyboard comes with controllers and other fun knobs and switches to add depth and your own personality to your music. Some synthesizer keyboards have an Aftertouch feature that allows you to increase or decrease sound depending on the pressure you add to the keys while holding them down. Or add instruments to the classical piano sound for the illusion that you’re surrounded by an orchestra.

Learned how to play the ukulele this spring. Todd was very good as an instructor - and even though I was a lazy student (didn't do much practising 🙁 , I learned how to play - despite myself! Now, That's! amazing. Was a fun set of sessions.

I have had the privilege of teaching guitar lessons and rock band classes at Elite Music Academy and being a rock camp instructor at Toronto Music Camp since 2008. Elite is a great place to work. The owners are friendly and supportive. The staff is pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. The other instructors are top notch professionals who are a joy to work with. I can't say enough about the talented students I have had at Elite over the years. Their eagerness to learn, and the interaction I have with them, has been very motivating and inspiring for me. I hope to be a part of the great team at Elite for many more years.Todd Lefever

Love This place. It has 2 great owners and many wonderful teachers who will teach you everything you need to know about your instrument. it has many great programs such as rock which is run during the year and the Toronto Music Camp which is run in the summer for 5 weeks and is one of my favourite programs the school has. I have been with the school for lessons, rock band and the Toronto Music Camp for about 4 years and i love it. Elite Music Academy is one of the best music schools in Toronto and it always will be. i recommend this place to anyone who wants to take music lessons.

My daughter took piano and voice lessons at Elite and attended their Toronto Music Camp for two summers. She loved her teachers and has passed her RCM exams rather quickly. Her teachers mixed the lessons with classical training and pop music to keep it interesting while still providing a solid music foundation. Their store is warm and welcoming; the owners obviously have a passion for what they do. I also loved how they got the kids performing out in the community and recording their music. Seeing my daughter finally perform on a professional stage made all the back and forth to lessons worth it.

Buy a metronome! It takes some getting used to, but it’ll put the brakes on that runaway freight train tempo and help to stabilize your child’s sense of rhythm. Most digital pianos have a metronome built in. Ask your teacher to use the metronome in the lesson.
