Music at AK Arts Academy
It is our job, as parents, educators, and friends, to see that our young people have the opportunity to obtain the thorough education that will prepare them for the future. Much of that education takes place in the classroom. We must encourage our youngsters in such pursuits as music education. In addition to learning the valuable lesson that it takes hard work to achieve success, no matter what the arena, music education can provide students with a strong sense of determination, improved communication skills, and a host of other qualities essential for successful living.

AK Arts Academy’s Diverse Music Program Strikes the Right Note
AK Arts Academy is home to one of the top music schools in London Ontario. With a diverse staff teaching a variety of 1-on-1 and group classes, students of all ages are encouraged to think and create outside of the norm. Each year, our students participate in a variety of musical performances throughout the community and Southwestern Ontario.
There is a causal link between music and spatial intelligence (the ability to perceive the world accurately and to form mental pictures of things). This kind of intelligence, by which one can visualize various elements that should go together, is critical to the sort of thinking necessary for everything from solving advanced mathematics problems to being able to pack a book-bag with everything that will be needed for the day. Students of the arts learn to think creatively and to solve problems by imagining various solutions, rejecting outdated rules and assumptions. Questions about the arts do not have only one right answer.
Music provides everyone with a means of self-expression. Everyone needs to be in touch at some time in his life with his core, with what he is and what he feels. Good self-esteem and self worth is a by-product of this self-expression.
