Windup Music

Expanding Minds Through Creative Process

A new approach to piano and guitar lessons
in Toronto.

Personalized Lessons

Your child is unique,
and so is our program.

Where traditional music programs attempt to teach every child in the same way, we offer an approach personalized to each student. We rely only on the most basic skills that exist very early on in your child’s development.

Discover Interests

We encourage students to explore all aspects of music; improvisation, composition, recording.

Personalize Path

Each student is unique in their skill development and musical interests. We tailor our teaching to them.
