Who is Morin Music Studio?

Music is our passion. At Morin Music Studio our programs are dedicated solely to musical education, training and all of the joy that it can bring to our lives.

We began as a a collective of professional classical musicians offering lessons throughout Calgary, Alberta and have grown to become one of Calgary’s leading musical education centres.


OUR PROGRAM AND PHILOSOPHY ARE UNIQUE

The foundation of our programs is rooted in developing the whole child and their joy of learning. The discipline of studying music cultivates values and learning habits that will continue to benefit our students in whatever they choose to pursue in their lives, while also unlocking the powerful language of music.

  • “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.”

    ~ Denise C.

  • “Dan has been an amazing teacher, trying to know the kids as whole person and using fit-for-purpose approach for different characteristics. We feel very fortunate and privileged to have him.”

    ~ Siyan and Fred Wu

  • “Carmen is a great director in the studio, she is amazing and knows each child’s musical needs.”

    ~ Terez Khazaka

  • “Our children have received excellent music instruction at Morin Music Studio. Thanks to the wonderful teachers, our kids have a love of music and a strong musical background which they will enjoy for their whole lives.”

    ~Geeta T., Mom of Kevin and Alix

  • “Dr. Michalis is a very qualified teacher, very supportive and cares for his students.”

    ~ Terez Khazaka

  • “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

  • “As parents, there are many criteria to consider when we chose a piano teacher for our children: qualification, personality, teaching philosophy or approach, track record, studio environment, and so on.

    All of the above are key to cultivate children’s solid piano fundamental skills and develop their love of music. We believe music helps children’s emotional and behaviour development. After the first interview with Carmen, we were certain we found the right teacher and transferred our children here. Now our two boys have successfully finished the third year in the studio and we are happy we made the right decision.

    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

  • “Our three children have been students at Morin Music Studio for the past 4 years. We are absolutely thrilled with how much they have learned and how they have grown as musicians!

    The teachers at Morin Music Studio are professional and very knowledgeable. They strive for excellence with their students and we have been amazed at the growth each of our children has shown over the time they have been there. We thoroughly enjoy the recitals that the Studio puts on and are so proud of watching our children perform with confidence and skill.

    Morin Music Studio is an exceptional experience and we feel grateful to be a part of it!”

    ~Shauna H. – Mom of Jennie, Victor and Maggie
