The Music Box is moving to a new location!

The Music Box is expanding! After 3 plus years of working out of my home I am pleased to say that we are ready for a larger location. Every day for the past three years, as I was teaching, I could see a building sitting across the road. It was rarely used and full of potential. I dreamed of having such a large bright space to share music with my students.

The building started out as a shoe store and shoe repair shop, but over time has housed everything from a gift shop to a graphic design business, a barber shop/ hair salon, scrapbooking supplies, and it did house a piano/voice teacher at one point too.  The time is right and circumstances allowed for me to move into the building at the end of the year.  I can hardly wait! There will be a busy hair salon going in right next door too so students and parents can even get a makeover while in town for lessons!

In the new space there will be a large waiting room to ease transition between classes, space for taking care of the needs of our youngest students (changing and nursing stations), designated areas for Music Pups baby classes, MYC classes and private learning and space for me to teach in the way I am most comfortable…BIG!!!  I love learning to be a full body experience. We remember when we “do”.  While I have loved teaching in my current location I have had to alter my methods a little to fit the space. It will be so wonderful to spread my wings once again. Refreshing for both myself and for my students!

Today we began the countdown…6 more lessons for everyone until Christmas recitals and the closing of the studio. We will reopen on January 14th in the new location at 17 Goshen Street North. Now to pick out paint, rugs, design a layout and dream of how wonderful the new space will be….oh and storage!!!…I should mention there will be storage!!!!

Check back for updates as the new place is transformed into “The Music Box – Family Music Centre”.

Aimee…it was with butterflies and excitement for you and all the musically inspired children whos lives you touch, when I hear the rumour of your new location. Peeked (for the first time) at your web site and have read the news of you moving across the street. This is one of the best news I have heard lately. I remember with appreciation the love of music that you helped to nuture in our daughters,and the wonderful preschool program formatted by you many years ago now. The enthusiam keeps growing over the years.
Congrats!!!!! Carolyn Mathonia
p.s. Katie just purchased her own piano, she has no home yet, but her first piece of furniture is a piano!
