High-Quality Formal Music Education

to learn the tools and language of musical expression

Individualized Programming
All Styles of Music
Support and Guidance from our world-class faculty

It’s worth it to receive quality guidance

  • Music training is most similar to learning a language and works with delayed gratification. Enjoyment increases as skills and understanding increase
  • Working without clear structure means lack of progress—which leads to less enjoyment long-term
  • Regardless of the program, music training requires time. Why invest the time and resources without the proper guidance to build skills and tools?
  • Learning music is more than learning to press certain keys or play certain strings. Why learn to play an instrument without building real skills and tools of expression that can open the door to creativity long-term?

It’s not only about knowing the exact steps to take, it’s also knowing which ones you must not skip

How do our programs work for your unique goals?

There is a reason why formal private instruction is considered the gold-standard in music education and training. Classical training does not mean that students are limited to playing only classical music—in fact, it’s quite the opposite! 

Western music (everything from Beethoven to today’s Pop music) serves as the foundation for classical formal training, which means that the music knowledge and understanding built through formal lessons will directly apply to all styles. Additionally, the tools of technique and musicianship built through formal training are unrivalled and will allow students to tap into their own individual musical expression in any style of music you apply them to.

Why Music?

Did you know that there is no other activity that activates and strengthens as many brain regions as learning a musical instrument?

We believe in music and in the joy it brings when connecting us to each other. Music is an essential means of human expression, and knowledge and understanding of music is integral to a well-rounded education. Formal music lessons develop self-confidence and effective learning habits in a positive and warm environment. By nurturing a student’s musical interests, unique strengths, and goals, the musicians at Morin Music Studio in Calgary instill a joy of learning while unlocking the powerful gift of the musical language. Music is our passion and our Calgary music teachers feel privileged to share their love of music with every student.

    ~ Kasandra H.

  • "I am extremely pleased with the progress that the boys have made this year, as I feel the online lessons are equally as effective as in-person instruction. These online lessons are so enjoyable for our family that the kids really look forward to their lessons, and probably even prefer them over in-person studio lessons."

  • "We enrolled our daughter in Suzuki ECE when she was 7 months old and she has continued into Crescendo kids as she has aged. The structured nature of the classes have taught her discipline and patience as well as nurtured her appreciation for music. Through repetition she has learned many songs and loves playing the instruments. She started off shy and unsure but her confidence continues to grow with each class. She comes home from music class and is excited to teach her stuffed animals what she has learned that week!"

    ~ Tam H., Mom of Quinn

  • "It is quite easy to find a teacher who is patient and always praise the student for their progress or a teacher who is rigorous about achieving high standard and targets, but it is not easy to find a teacher like Carmen who has both of the attributes. She will ensure the students not only have fun but also accomplish any goal they set for themselves.”

    ~ Jing and Dahai D., Parents of Alex and Steven

  • “My daughters have been students at Morin Music for the past year and we are absolutely thrilled with the experience. They both countdown to the day of their class each week and have so much fun there. My only regret is not starting them even earlier. The studio is bright, beautiful and welcoming and the instructors are playful, genuine, and effective at teaching the kids in a way that resonates with them. I look forward to having my girls continue to learn and develop their musical literacy. I would recommend Morin Music Studio to anyone looking for quality musical instruction”

    ~ Sandy G., Mom of Emaan and Aikam

We thoroughly enjoy the recitals that the Studio puts on and are so proud of watching our children perform with confidence and skill.
