Our Reviews

Since 2009, our faculty have adhered to the highest standards of music education and have drawn on their diverse experience and training to create the most engaging learning experience for each student to help them achieve their musical goals. Below are just a small sampling of positive results we have celebrated.

"We have been with Jennifer at Arbutus Music Academy for more than eight years. Jennifer is a wonderful teacher who is patient and deeply committed to the growth of the student. She has built a solid foundation for our daughters' musical education, beyond the violin. We could not have asked for a better teacher!"


"Our daughter has been attending Arbutus Academy for almost six years now and we have to say how pleased we are with her progress. The teachers and staff at the academy are highly dedicated to their students which can be evidenced by the amount of their private time that they invest, particularly in the group activities. Our daughter has been encouraged to participate in both formal and informal recitals as well as Kiwanis festivals. They gently encourage and motivate the students to move up to new levels of playing, always maintaining a positive atmosphere."

Chris and Concha

"Our two sons have been students at the academy for 7 years, where they have learned violin, guitar, and theory. Thanks to the teachers at Arbutus, the boys not only have become technically skilled musicians, but they have also grown in their love for music; they have become comfortable, confident, and happy performing for other people, and also working and performing in groups. These are skills which I am sure they will be able to apply in other areas outside of music, such as at school, at work, and in their social lives--so Arbutus has offered an excellent mix of disciplined learning, fun, and personal growth."
