Fun and Engaging Musical Education

Fun and Engaging Musical Education

The Academy of Music is a family-run music school established in 1982 by our owner and founder Joanne Parker. Since then, our Milton studio has grown to encompass a wide variety of instruments as well as ensembles. At the Academy, we believe music education should be enjoyable and practical, which is why we provide each of our students the opportunity to perform in both graded and non-graded settings (concerts, recitals, competitions, etc.)

At the studio, you can expect to meet Joanne's son, Sean Parker (Sales Manager) and Amanda Zulauf (Teaching Supervisor).


Our teachers complete pedagogy training and participate in educational workshops several times a year.  We believe learning never ends; you can be confident that you are receiving a quality music education from the Academy of Music Milton.

Our program can be customized to accommodate any students’ interests and goals. No matter what instrument you choose, Academy students can expect:

  • Unlimited make-up lessons
  • Access to multiple playing opportunities (check out our Youtube page!)
  • Individualized lesson plans
  • Graded course of study and exams
  • Performance Opportunities
  • Post secondary audition preparation
  • Music points!
  • Free extra help lessons


A. Developing good practice habits is essential to success in music. At the beginning your child should practice about 15 minutes each day. The important thing is that they are consistent.
