Testimonials

What Parents are Saying

Fabulous academy to access and grow in the arts!
Amy and Michael Pickering absolutely know music, theater, entertaining, education… and they attract high quality teachers who want to share their love of music with kids ready to grow. Both my children have been enrolled in various lessons. My 12 year is currently in the Broadway Bound class which gives her a chance to understand the fundamentals of performing musical theater, during a more casual setting than a full blown musical. My 9 year old son is loving drumming and benefited from piano lessons prior, he is a musician in the making. They are both always energized after their classes. We are grateful for the Pickering team and academy!” – Laura T.

If you are looking for top tier instruction full of joy and fun you should check out Pickering Creative Artist Academy. There’s nothing I love more, than my home full of music and songs from my kids. The growth they have shown in skills and confidence is amazing and keeps them looking forward to their lessons each week. We feel lucky to be a part of the Pickering family!” – Erin O

Michael —

I want you to know that you and Amy inspire. You never tell anyone they can’t do or they are too old. Your energy is infectious and you have provided a place for people of all ability to thrive! My children aren’t “the best,” but under the wing of your academy they believe in themselves and have the courage to share that with the world.
You are building community through music by not leaving anyone behind.
Thank you for all you do!

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What's The Minimum Age For Starting With Music Lessons At Pickering?

At Pickering Academy, we believe music is for everyone! We have learners starting music lessons as young as 4 years old! We welcome the young at heart too – it’s never too late to pick up a new skill!

2. Which Instrument Should My Child Start With?

Pickering provides a wide variety of instrument lessons for all ages! Generally, the piano is regarded as the most user-friendly instrument for young learners and a great way to learn the basics of music. However, this also depends on what your child loves to listen to! We have kids who like to rock and roll and start out with the drums, or kids who love to belt out and sing through vocal lessons! Every child is unique – and that’s also why we’d suggest a trial lesson to discover your child’s unique talent!

3. How Can I Keep Track Of My Child's Progress?

At Pickering, we believe that children make great progress through strong teamwork between child, parent, and teacher! Our Pickering Music Teacher will update you on your child’s progress points after every lesson and if you want to take it a step further, all parents are welcome to sit into lessons so you can be a part of your child’s learning journey!

4. Do We Need An Instrument At Home? We're Just Starting Our Lessons!

Having an instrument at home to practice with is highly recommended! Learning how to play a musical instrument is not just a mental skill, but it involves a lot of muscle memory and exercises to strengthen coordination.

However, not to worry! Pickering provides instrument rental options at affordable monthly rates! You can speak to our Pickering Studio Manager for more information.

5. How Long And How Often Should One PracticeTo Master Playing An Instrument?

10 to 15 Minutes a day – YES, it’s that simple! When beginning your musical learning journey, short, daily practice is enough as a start, and you can slowly add a few minutes each time you progress to play more complex and lengthy repertoire. The most important thing? Consistency. The more consistent the practice, the more likely you are to build healthy, daily habits that integrate seamlessly into your routine – just like brushing your teeth!

6. What Are Your Teachers Qualifications?

Our teachers all have outstanding musical qualifications – ranging from Professional Performing Arts Vocations, Certifications, Bachelor’s, or even Master’s Degrees!

Moreover, they’ve undergone through a rigorous hiring process. Not only do we hire talented musicians, but we’re proud to say that our teachers are also passionate and dedicated educators who genuinely love students of all ages!

7. What Are Your Rescheduling Policies?

Glad you asked! At Pickering, you’ll experience the ultimate flexibility in rescheduling lessons. You’ll only have to give a 6 hour notice to reschedule or cancel a lesson, and our makeup lessons are valid for 6 months after the cancelled lesson date!

8. Can You Provide Advice For Families Interested in Pursuing Professional Performing Opportunities?

Great (and important) question! Pickering has a professional performing arts and entertainment industry network nationwide including our leadership team. We have students (and instructors) performing in professional theatrical companies, film, television, concerts, touring, and more. We also host workshops and forums with industry professionals to help safely guide you through the world of professional arts and entertainment.
