We exist to help extraordinary people discover a lifelong love of music, one note at a time.

About Us

At Resound School of Music, we are passionate in our belief that anyone can excel in learning to play music. But having the wrong teacher or trying to do it alone can leave you feeling frustrated, discouraged, and wanting to quit. The key is finding a teacher who understands your needs and who truly cares about your long-term success. That’s where we enter the story.

We started Resound in 2009 with a vision of providing the finest music instruction available from the comfort of your home. Over the years, our proven approach has helped hundreds of people in the Metro Vancouver area just like you. But don’t be mistaken; we’re not your typical, stuffy music conservatory, nor do we ever want to be! Instead, we are the music school that was designed with you in mind. So really, this story isn’t about us at all; it’s about you.

DOING THE DRIVING FOR YOU

Most of us are busy enough as it is. Your time is valuable. Whether you’re a parent of young children, a career-minded professional, or a full-time student, you probably spend more time on the road than you would like.

 

Our goal is to make your life easier. One of the many benefits of taking lessons with Resound is that you don’t have to look any further than your own home to find a great teacher. We do the travelling for you so that you can reclaim your time and focus on what really matters.

FINDING YOU THE PERFECT TEACHER

You are unique. That’s why we match you with a teacher based on your goals, musical interests, personality, and learning style. Our free musical assessment allows us to pair you up with the teacher who will best suit your individual needs.

 

We hire only the very best teachers at Resound, accepting less than 5% of those who apply. All teachers possess a University-level education and have had a criminal record check conducted by the RCMP. This way you can rest knowing that the person we are sending has been thoroughly vetted – and that you and your children will be safe.

HELPING OUR COMMUNITY

We believe in giving back to our community. Through our partnerships with schools and organizations, we work to provide opportunities for students to receive a music education that they might not otherwise have access to.

 

Also as part of our global initiative to fund the arts, we have committed to sponsoring a music program in the Spruceland Village in Kenya. We’re passionate about making our mark on developing countries and in the fight to end poverty. So as you enjoy learning to play an instrument, you can also enjoy the fact that you are providing the same opportunities to others!
