Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Bringing You The Best Online Music Experience In Toronto

We’re still here for you! During this very difficult time, many music schools have stopped offering music lessons. Now more than ever, we need to bring our community together online! While Toronto Arts Academy has always taught many international music students online, we wanted to do even more with our online experience.

Now, you can enjoy over 100 hours of free music classes every month all completely free for our students. 

See a sample below:

taking care of yourself with music lessons

If you’re feeling lonely, we’ve got you – 7 days a week. Come on in to one of our group classes! Parents and siblings, if you have a family member registered at our school, you’re all welcome to explore our classes!

Don’t feel like playing your instrument in a private lesson? That’s ok too! You can use your lesson time to catch up with your teacher, relax, and talk about what’s happening and share about each others experiences. Just let them know you need some talk time.

Taking Care Of Yourself:

  1. Take News Breaks. This includes social media. Find 2 or 3 reliable news and social sources, and try and limit from your engagement with those sources to 2 or 3 times a day.
  2. Care For Your Body. This includes meditation, eating healthy, exercising regularly, and limiting or avoiding alcohol and drugs.
  3. Make You Time. Make time for yourself and do the activities you enjoy. We’ve curated hours and hours of musical activities for you to enjoy with our fun community for free!
  4. Connect With Others. Connect with us on zoom, or your friends on other social apps. Share you concerns and talk about how you’re feeling.

Top 3 Tips For ZOOM Technical Issues:

  1. Audio Settings: There are 3 audio settings which we feel are important to change from the defaults for music lessons. You can find those here.
  2. Preserve Processing: Close down any extra browsers, browser tabs, or apps on your computer or device you’re not using that could hog CPU power and cause lags in your zoom lesson.
  3. Internet Connection: Try to make sure there is no interference from your wifi signal, or that are you close to your wifi as possible. Do a speed test to check your internet connection.

Zoom Security

Zoom has seen exponential growth in it’s usage. As a result, Zoom has focused attention on increased security. This past Saturday, Zoom made an upgrade that required us to update our zoom link to include an embedded password.

Be aware that we have taken steps to minimize security risks on our platform. Due to our unique zoom setup, security is enhanced beyond just our secured link via the use of private breakout rooms for students, and for visitors requiring front desk approval before entering our main room.

If you are a registered student, please contact us to get our updated link.

Zoom Virtual Backgrounds:

Have you wondered how some of our staff get their cool backgrounds behind them in our zoom lobby? It’s easy! Find instructions here. Older devices may have not virtual backgrounds available as an option. Need some ideas? Have a look at these hipster backgrounds, or these kids backgrounds.
