Harmony House always always been nothing but awesome for me! I've taken drum lessons, performance classes, and just about every other course they have had to offer over the years. Harmony House always provides students with fun teachers and a positive learning environment which can be a rarity these days.. I have made several close friends over the years at Harmony House and wouldn't trade the years of lessons for anything. Sandi herself is the most motivating positive individual out there and her vision for harmony house is spectacular. She truly believes every single student has their own talents and it is her job to bring it all out! Thanks Harmony House 🙂

Harmony House Music Studio not only provides a high quality of instruction and unique learning opportunities but it also provides something that not all places of musical instruction can hope to create, a community. I was able to expand my passion for music and explore my abilities with the help of the amazing staff and their constant support and encouragement. I first joined Harmony House when I was 6 years old and continued to be apart of the school for 13 years. Throughout my time at the school I gained invaluable friendships with the other students and a self-confidence that I developed through the many solo and group performances I got to do and look back on fondly. My experiences with the school are ones I will cherish and never forget!

Looking back, it’s easy to see how much Harmony House has helped me grow, not only as a musician, but also as a person. The student directed environment is fleshed out with incredibly passionate teachers and a uniquely structured lesson program. The teachers are clearly talented musicians in their own right, and are always full of great advice for both recording and performance. My favourite part of Harmony House would have to be the group classes. While individual skills are foundational, the group classes create an opportunity for budding musicians to work with other students and expand their abilities in a low pressure, insanely fun setting. The Harmony House community somehow manages to be both tight-knit and wildly inclusive, and one I would recommend to just about anyone!

As I write this review we are driving to Northern BC and I am listening to my 2 youngest kids singing in the back seat. The last few hours they have been engaged in lively discussions of music theory, harmonizing and improv singing! My daughter said during our trip "Mom I realized how lucky we were to have done Harmony House music school." Our family has been a part of Harmony House for over 14 years. We stayed with Harmony House for so long because of the numerous benefits and opportunities it provided. Our kids were able to develop their confidence and public speaking skills through the numerous performance venues that were part of the music school curriculum. A few examples include community parades, fundraising concerts, and a chance to record in a professional recording studio! This combined with the new friendships they formed with the other students provided an amazing atmosphere for learning, personal development, and fun!

Hands down - best music school ever. Kids/youth stay engaged and motivated because they get to do the kind of music they want to do. Promotes music for life - and if you want - for work as well. Amazing (for adults too!!)
