Welcome to the Academy!


The beautiful thing about learning to play music is the joy,

the complete satisfaction it gives you this week and next,

and for all the weeks in the rest of your life.

At the Academy, we love what we do and it shows. We love to make music and teach music but what we love most is seeing how music ignites the imagination and instills a love for learning in our students. We see that in our youngest students just 5 or 6 years old to our seniors in their 70’s and 80’s, and we see it whether they are on piano or violin, guitar or ukulele or any of the other instruments we teach.  Are we passionate about what we do? Absolutely.

West Kelowna Academy of Music is a dynamic Music Community providing teaching excellence in a welcoming non-competitive environment where music-making is celebrated, and individual goals are valued. The Academy’s “Music4Life” philosophy empowers students to develop the skills and knowledge necessary for music to become a lifelong interest and a satisfying source for well-being.

Mental Health is just as important as Physical Health 

Often times, our mental health is overlooked due to busy schedules, after school sports, dance clubs, etc. 
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. 
Music has so many positives to our mental health, mental growth and personal development.
