The Best Saxophone, Clarinet, and Flute Lessons in Toronto

Hard-to-find Wind Instrument Lessons in Toronto!

We don’t mean to toot our own horn, but we’ve got the best saxophone and clarinet teachers in town! These deeply expressive woodwinds take a lot of skill to play. To succeed, you need a skilled music teacher and a supportive school to get from those early squawks into a beautiful music – whether it be jazz, blues, classical or rock.

Elite Music Academy prides itself on well-rounded music education, ensuring that our students get exceptional lessons and opportunities to progress as a musician. We provide $23 trial lessons so you can meet the teacher first before registering.

As a performance-based music school, we arrange opportunities for students to perform at popular venues around Toronto. Our music school also has two large Winter and Spring recitals in a professional theatre. Regardless of whether you play sax or clarinet, kids ages 10-17 are welcome to join our Rock Band course to gain experience playing in a group and developing musicianship.

Saxophones make a great addition to our summer Toronto Music Camp, where kids and teens learn how to play in a band and make music videos. We don’t mean to toot our own horn here, but whether your ambition is to play in a jazz ensemble or Honk Fest, Elite Music Academy has you covered with exceptional teachers and prices.
