For musically inclined children and adults in the town of Oakville, Klaudia’s Music Studio, established in 2002, continues to be the premier school of music with offering one of the best in quality, professional music lessons in Oakville. The studio adopts a philosophy that music education should be a positive, creative experience, along with steady progress and lots of fun for its students!
The studio cooperates with selected teachers in offering private one-on-one lessons in piano, violin and all the other instruments you will find on this website under “Music Lessons” page. Klaudia’s Music Studio offers group instrumental and theory classes, as well as lessons for very young children. Page “String Orchestra Lessons” is dedicated to our very own string orchestra called MagicK that comprises of our students and also of students who do not take lessons with us. These are mostly adults who wish to extend their music interests. They have played at young age, haven’t played since and now they are ready to give it a try. MagicK Orchestra has its own concerts throughout the school year. Because of uniqueness of our string program, often, students who take private lessons from other music schools or private teachers are coming in to register for orchestra only. Besides classical music training we expand to popular music training and we hold Rock Band that forms with students of similar age and ability. Our guitar and drums combination classes are highly popular among teenage boys and girls. Not only do they have fun trying new possibilities, but the skill they get from being in a supervised environment is invaluable. From recital to recital you will see remarkable results. Classical guitar classes are an addition we are proud to offer, too.
Teachers of Klaudia’s studio, trained in music education, are skillful at adapting their teaching approach to suit the individual student’s learning style. Children and adults alike follow their personal goal of achievement. Bi-annual recitals and above mentioned orchestra concerts are the highlight of the studio offerings.

From happy customers:
“My children enjoy coming to their piano lessons every week. It is not a hurtle, not a struggle, this is what they want. What more can a parent ask for?”
“Such passion at this place.”
“My daughter took piano lessons with the same teacher for many many years, since she was about 7. When it came to the time to leave for university, she was in tears! So sad to leave! She will miss her teacher dearly and promised to keep in touch. This place cares about its students, cares about their struggles, worries, moods, concerns, successful moments, concerts, exams and everything in between. Thank you for being a part of our family. It means so much to us. Thank you!”
“Recitals are small and adorable. We like it that way. We can enjoy our son’s performance without that pressure from a huge audience. Instead, we are in a spacious acoustically sound hall, our son is playing on a grand piano in a small concert and we take that precious moment in. Each recital after recital this studio makes us feel love for music.”
“Orchestra is such a huge part of why I joined the music lessons. What an opportunity! As an adult cello learner I was anxious even to join music lessons altogether, not to mention orchestra. I soon learned that this is simply the best thing for me right now. I play masterpieces and I have to admit, not perfectly, but with such passion! If you are thinking of joining, do not hesitate for another moment!”
“Another music school told me that taking cello lessons at my age (I am retired) was quote “fruitless”. Wow. What an ignorance. So I joined Klaudia’s Music Studio. Klaudia explained the potential we all have for taking in new knowledge at pretty much any age. She would not even limit it to 99! And now I am so glad I listened. It is rewarding. Small steps toward achieving a small goal. Encouragement I get from my cello teacher every week is just so kind and gentle. I never thought I could do it and here I am, going on 9th year of lessons!”
“I joined violin lessons at the age of 40 and I never looked back. It will be 15 years this year since I started my new music journey. After taking piano as a kid I wanted to try something new and challenging. Violin seemed like a good idea, so I persisted. Then I bought myself a really good violin in Toronto. That made it real! Some years back I joined the Klaudia’s orchestra and I continued to perform at all solo recitals … every December and every June, year after year. The best part is that two years ago I joined a string quartet that consists of same minded adults like me, we are 2 violins, 1 viola and 1 cello. We did a competition and placed first! It was a good feeling. And we meet weekly, sometimes more that once a week because we became good friends. Music connected our hearts and truly believe it made us all better people.”
From summer music camp:
“My daughter loves your camp so much she made me arrive at least 20 minutes in advance every day, so she doesn’t miss a thing. After last year’s camp, she joined it again this year – twice, and she enjoys it tremendously. Thank you. I think we will sign up for violin lessons this coming up season.”
“Guitar and drum presentation was one of the best features of this camp. Besides all other instruments, my son started to love guitar and cello. He was so excited to come back every day for the camp! Thank you for this opportunity. We would not be able to decide what instrument is right for him if it wasn’t for your camp.”
“More parents should know about your camp and Junior program. I would sit through it for hours if I could. You make it interesting and it is amazing how much you cover!”
Grandmother, L.A., Oakville
” … thanking you for the wonderful summer violin camp you provided. Our son started the camp very interested in the violin and completed the program being able to play 4 songs. He also enjoyed learning about the history of the violin and how it works. We now look forward to continuing with lessons in the fall.”
A.&D. M., Oakville
“Klaudia quickly developed a very strong rapport with our children.
Through her dedication to music education Klaudia conveys her knowledge
and love of music to her students. Our kids’ experience has been fun,
educational and their appreciation of music will surely last a lifetime.”
