Welcome to Don Mills Music Studio!
Welcome to Don Mills Music Studio, the music studio of Derrick Lewis and Meri Dolevski-Lewis! We are an INDEPENDENT music studio based in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) that primarily serves students in the Don Mills and nearby neighbourhoods, which include Leaside, Pape Village, East York, Thorncliffe Park, Flemingdon Park, Bayview, Willowdale, and parts of downtown Toronto. However, we have and have had students travel to our studio who travel all the way from Brampton, Whitby, and Newmarket.
We offer lessons in piano, clarinet, organ, trombone, music theory, ear training, improvisation,composition, and arranging. We teach students from beginners to ARCT level. We also have referrals for teachers of several other instruments available. Meri Dolevski-Lewis is also available for school and community ensemble clarinet clinics.
We welcome beginning students from 4-16 years old; older students are only accepted if they play at an approximately minimum Level 2 RCM prior to starting lessons, with the exception those who are parents of younger students.
We welcome child and teen students with a wide range of abilities, from the intellectually challenged to the highly gifted.
We strive for students to achieve excellence in their music studies, such as through exams offered by The Royal Conservatory of Music, but, at the same time, having fun by using technology to enhance their learning experience, such as learning some ear training and theory on a laptop computer as well as making audio/video recordings.
Enjoy your visit!
