The School

Theory. Practice. Performance.

Our Story

The Manotick School of Music (MSM) opened its doors in 1991 and continues to provide musical instruction to students of all ages and skill levels in the Manotick area. In 2014, the ownership of the school changed hands and MSM students were combined with those of Musical Thought Studios, also located nearby in Manotick. Today the strengths and talents of both schools operate as Manotick School of Music under the direction of Lisa Bing, founder of Musical Thought.

Our Philosophy

Our goal at Manotick School of Music is to not only provide high quality music lessons, but to instill the artistic habit in all of our students and their families. Sure, taking music lessons can improve reading and math skills, concentration, self-esteem, and school grades…but there are also more personal reasons for studying music. Time and again, music has been identified as a universal language because of its ability to speak directly to us without using words. The artistic habit is making room in our lives for these conversations.

Our teachers are all experienced, qualified, dedicated music instructors and professional musicians, each of them passionate about their art and eager to instill in their students a love of music. So come visit us here in Manotick and learn what music can do for you!
