Arts and Science Academy of Canada music division strives to ensure that every student will become and remain part of a beautiful, creative, friendly and very professional atmosphere. Our school invites students to study hard, to learn a lot, to get good results, and to love music. Not every child will become a musician, but everyone will forever cherish and enjoy the knowledge, skills and the sensitivity acquired while studying music. Music will always be an inherent part of who they are.Teachers in our school are highly qualified musicians representing the Russian school of music. A teacher must have a very strong educational background including 7-8 years of music school, 4 years of music college, and a university degree (5 years). Our program contains all musical subjects (instrument playing, performing as a soloist and as an accompanist, theory, solfeggio, music history). At Arts and Science Academy of Canada students learn all this while at the same time learning their academic subjects such as Languages, World History, Math, Physics, Geography, etc. We have a lot to share with our students; we teach them not only to play an instrument, but also about different genres, styles, history, etc.Every child is unique. Every child in our school gets his or her individual program adapted to their abilities, interests, and personality. Our music department works in close connection with The Royal Conservatory of Music of Canada, and our students participate in the RCM examination program. We teach piano, guitar, violin, flute and all theory subjects.

The Vocal Program focuses on ear training, group harmonies, lead singing, back-up singing, performance and stage presence. The vision for this Program is to develop confident, skillful performers through positive and exciting classes, where each participant has an opportunity to open up and strengthen their own abilities within a group setting.
Participants will learn what it takes to compete with the most powerful and admired singers often seen on shows such as Glee, Canada’s Got Talent and Canadian Idol.
PJ Bahramian, Program Director:
Growing up in Toronto, PJ formed his first rock band when he was only 12, and started getting his vocal training at the age of 15. PJ entered the Musicians Institute (MI) in Hollywood California in 2003. He learned all the ins and outs of the music industry, music theory, performance, songwriting and composing. Upon his graduation, PJ was offered a teaching position at MI and became one of the youngest teachers at the Institute. From 2003 to 2005 PJ worked as a host for a music show at a Los Angeles Persian Television Channel “ITN” and was featured in various commercials and music videos. PJ formed his existing band, Man the Destroyer, in 2004 and moved it to Toronto the same year. Man the Destroyer came a long way from being a garage band to performing all over Canada and the US with some of the biggest stars in the industry, including Blaze Bayley, former singer of Iron Maiden in 2011. Now back in his home town, this well seasoned singer would like to bring his knowledge and experience to your children.
