Recitals

All private students have the opportunity to perform in two formal recitals per year held in December and June. Students may perform one piece that showcases their work, and will perform with fellow members of their teacher’s studio as well as other students from Bravo Academy. Accompaniment is provided for students who will perform vocal or violin solos.

The recital is a fantastic chance for friends and family to see for themselves the progress that has been made throughout the term. Recitals are approximately 60 minutes long and are free to attend.

Masterclasses

Each year Bravo Academy invites renowned artists and music experts to present master classes. Master classes supplement a student’s education and allow students the opportunity to learn and gain insight from the highest level of musicians and professionals.

Lessons are available for all ages and levels (beginner to ARCT) and in all styles such as classical, pop, jazz, rock, music theatre, and opera. We offer preparation for competitions and music festivals, university entrance and auditions, developing a role for opera or musical theatre, and Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) and Conservatory Canada (CC) music exams.

Beginner lessons take place once a week for 30 minutes. Intermediate to advanced student lesson times range from 45 minutes to 1 hour. Private lessons are designed to suit the needs of each individual student. Students are encouraged to explore both the technical and creative sides of music. An average lesson includes instruction in: Ear Training – Sight Reading – Technique – Theory – Studies/Vocalises – Repertoire.

All registration forms and payment must be received in order to begin lessons.

For students that want to take the occasional lesson or would like a coaching/audition session with an instructor, the “casual student” option is available. Lessons are booked with a specific instructor based on the instructor’s availability. An administrative fee is added per 30 minutes.

A casual student is a student that is not committed to a specific timeslot and books lessons on a casual basis with a teacher that is available. A casual student’s lesson time and day is guaranteed provided it is booked at least one week in advance. Casual students are able to take part in masterclasses.
