Testimonials, Reviews & Feedback
"I'm writing this email to thank you for the engagement of my piano lessons. Thank you for directing me to Ms Yi, a brilliant and a passionate piano teacher, who is very patient, professional and knowledgeable. She is good at inspiring people and makes a personal plan for each student. In one word, I love this teacher. Thank you" - Qian
"Hello, I am the mother of a student by the name of Deidra Corina Robertson-Chois. She took lesson with one of the best voice teachers, the late Christine Attalah for many years. This teacher was instrumental in giving her the technique to sing well. Christine left us too soon but she left my daughter the gift of singing. My daughter was 14 at the time of her first lessons and is now 23. Thanks to you and to her wonderful teacher she continued her career as a singer as is now on the first rounds of LaVoix 6. Her name is Deidra Chois. So thank you to you for your wonderful dedicated teachers and this special performance I dedicate the the beautiful and talented Christine Attalah my her voice and encouragements always shine in my daughter's life.
You may go an look on youtube at the La Voix 6 site: under Deidra Chois and Ben Cherry and also at her website : Deidraandben.com. They have other videos. You may share this story if you wish and have your students and parents see the videos as witness to how your school was instrumental to start my daughter's appreciation of music.
Many thanks. Merci beaucoup à tout l'équipe." - Ana Rosa Chois

"The students and staff at Sinclair Laird Elementary School in Montreal would like to say Thank-You to All You Need Music and the Montreal Academy of Music for providing the instruments we bought after being awarded the Band Aid Musical Instrument Grant from MusiCounts this year. The new instruments are an exciting addition to our music program. It is such a pleasure to see the children enjoying a variety of new instruments in class as well as in the preparation of our upcoming Spring Concerts. All You Need Music played a big role in fulfilling our instrument "wish list" within our given deadline, they were always so friendly and ready to help. The CTV coverage is testament to how happy the students were to open the new boxes of instruments for the first time and discover what would become part of our school's inventory. Thank-You All You Need Music for helping us with the last and most exciting part of fulfilling our goal." - Mme. Helene Diguer
"As a parent at Sinclair Laird and member of the Parents Participation Organization, I would like to say Thank-You for all the great instruments that All You Need Music supplied us with. We are always trying to help raise the bar in the students' education and bringing greater exposure to music and the arts is a big part of this process. They were so excited to discover so many new instruments and equally happy to have new instruments in good shape and in more abundance. Thank-You for being such and integral part of this process, we are excited to see all the instruments we have now being played by our kids." - Joanna Peters
"I would like to congratulate you and your team on the wonderful concert you organized in June. I was very much impressed with the overall talent of all the students. I understand that for some of them it was the first time in front of an audience and for some it was the first time on the professional stage. Nevertheless, they all showed the incredible talent they posses. My family and I, we enjoyed every single performance. The fact that the Starfest event took place at Place des Arts has given all of the students, parents and, I am sure, the music teachers that additional edge. I would like to thank you and all the organizers who dedicated their valuable time and professional expertise to organize this year's event. Congratulations." - Magdalena
"I just want to thank you for letting me take part in the recital on the 19th. I had such a great time! Nobody at school could believe that I had played at Place Des Arts! Well, thanks for such a great opportunity!" -

"I have been a student of the Academy since January 2004 and it's been a wonderful experience. I got a late start with my music lessons (I'm 41) and was a little concerned about being able to follow. I'm glad to say that things are going well and I'm very happy with my violin teacher, Trina. I enjoy her teaching style very much and plan to continue with her." - Bianca S.
"I think you're doing a great service for music lovers. Keep up the good work." - Angela

"My son Luis is taking trumpet lessons with Xylo. Xylo has certainly been a great teacher for Luis so far and we are looking forward to working with him in the future." - Verena
"Thank you for what a great time I have been having! I am making good progress and happy with the lessons! Marilyn gives her students confidence. Music lessons are going really really well and I am happy with the way things are working out!" - Carla
"We love Gracey's new accordion teacher and he seems to be a perfect match for our needs. Mathieu is a sensitive and intelligent teacher who lives and breathes music in a creative and original way. The experience is very inspiring and motivating (even for mom who sits on the side and does paperwork during the lesson). Mathieu has been flexible with his schedule and this was also an asset as Gracey is still interested in maintaining her accordion lessons but is swamped with new life demands as she is in her first semester of a science program at Cegep and is holding down a job for the first time as well. It has been a stressful semester, but the lessons with Mathieu help rather than add to the sense of excessive demand she has had to deal with. We feel fortunate to have Mathieu as Gracey's accordion teacher and look forward to many more lessons.
Take care and thank you for finding someone so talented." - Mary
"Thank you very much! Yes, we really appreciated the quality of the lessons, the
well-organized website, and everything about your academy."Best, Mary
