My children have all been taking various music lessons (piano, drums and voice) from TKAM for a few years. We have had nothing but positive experiences with all of the teachers from the school.   I highly recommend this school if you are considering music lessons for yourself or for your children.

Kandice is very knowledgeable and interactive. She has a great incentive program for the children and she has great and unique teaching techniques. The studio is very cozy and inviting. I will recommend to all friends and family. I feel I get my money's worth at The Kitchener Academy of Music.

I have been an adult student of Kandice's for a number of years. As an adult with no music background it is a challenge to embark on music education. Kandice is always encouraging and patient. I'm not sure how she has such patience listening to my pieces slowly move along. She always wants to make sure that I am learning what I want to learn and tailors my lessons to meet that goal.
