COVID-19: group programs are being conducted virtually, or distanced (indoors or outdoors), depending on the situation. Proof of full vaccination is now required for all students 12 and up who’d like to attend private, in-person lessons. Virtual instruction is also an option.  Younger children may participate in person if deemed necessary for their progress.

COVID-19: due to restrictions, Kindermusik classes are being conducted either distanced and outside (when weather allows) or virtually.

Kindermusik music and movement classes offer you the chance to spend quality time with your baby, toddler or preschooler in a fun, educational environment. Lynn, our licensed Kindermusik educator, will use her many years of experience to guide you in engaging your child with the various activities.  In virtual classes, periodic two-way communication allows families to connect with Miss Lynn and the others in their class.


“Lynn allows children to learn at their own pace in a fun and interactive program. She has customized her programs to suit the needs of our autistic students, incorporating sign language that allows the children the freedom to explore music in their own way.”

— Gail, Child Care Provider, Barrie


Covid-19: thanks to the vaccines, some group seniors programs have resumed, indoors, with protocols in place.

Our seniors music programs are offered through retirement residences, providing seniors the chance to re-engage with music and the memories it inspires.



Every day, we strive to put our core values of patience, compassion, integrity, excellence in music and fun into action. Our goal is to ensure that everything we do is centered on providing a positive and inspiring musical environment.

Meet Lynn Thompson, RCM grade 8 piano, clarinet & voice

Lynn has proudly provided music instruction in the Barrie area since 1997. She is certified by The Royal Conservatory of music, both as an elementary piano and intermediate clarinet specialist, and soon, an elementary voice specialist as well. She is also a licensed Kindermusik educator.

She loves sharing her knowledge of music and seeing her students experience what she’s learned. She wants each student to feel confident in their musical abilities, but also to have fun with music. As time allows, she enjoys introducing them to the many other instruments in her collection. Seeing her students improve and explore music gives her great pleasure. However long they stay, she hopes to give them a foundation of music that they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.
