Our goal for every student is to provide them with a solid foundation for which they will base all their future singing endeavors. We start at the beginning teaching students who may have never sang before the basics for breathing, enunciation, posture, diction, and more. Of course that is not all, while building the foundation that will help all singers improve, we also work on our repertoire to learn songs so that by the end of our 5 day camp students will have the skills and knowledge to be better singers AND songs to sing in their repertoire. Students with previous experience will have the benefit of reviewing these concepts but also working on them in a group setting.
Learn from certified instructors that make learning fun
All of our instructors are Studio Nine certified professionals that have experience teaching children and young adults in a fun environment that keeps everyone entertained while learning.
Studio 9 teaching methods accelerate learning
Studio Nine is continuously working on improving the way that lessons are taught using exceptionally fun methods that keep students’ attention while teaching them even the most boring, yet important fundamentals.
Scared to sing? It’s a lot easier with friends
That is why singing in a choir can be an excellent way to start. You will be singing and working with a group surrounded by people just like you so you can learn and develop together without the fear of being ‘alone’. Strength in numbers you will have the support and encouragement of a group of people learning and developing together.
No homework or daily practice, it’s summer!
Each and every day the students will review the material from the day before and add new songs, exercises and techniques. All the students will pick up from where they left off the previous day so unlike other programs there is no requirement for the student to practice between classes.
Relax and enjoy singing together as a group
Singing can be an individual activity when we learn to sing and improve our own personal abilities it is also important to collaborate in a group. Our classmates can encourage us and help us develop, they can provide us with insight and assistance inside and outside the classroom. We also want you to work with other singers and sing in a group and experience the joy of singing and the fun of singing with other people. Singing can be relaxing and joyful and what better way to do that than with a group of people.
Learn to sing in only 5 days while having fun
What would you say if I said you could learn the basics, learn some songs, have fun, and do it all in JUST 5 DAYS? In our summer choir camp it is true. Within 5 days we take a student who has never sang before and turn them into singers.
Perform at a recital in front of your family and friends with a chance to win recording studio time, private lessons and a guitar!

We assume that none of the students have played before, so that we can get everyone on the same level as soon as possible.
We can accommodate kids with experience, so everyone can have fun learning.
In this camp we look at four instruments: piano, guitar, drums and your voice. Maybe you have experience singing, but you have never picked up a guitar before. With our focus on flexibility, we are able to give everyone fun group lessons that are worth their time.

With our program you will have the chance to try piano, guitar, voice and drums all in the same week. You won’t just try the instrument but actually learn some skills and some songs that will stay with you the rest of your life. This is an excellent way for students who have an interest in learning more than one instrument to try out and experience learning guitar, piano, drums and singing all in a single camp.
Kids should have fun in the summer, so we don’t have homework or required daily practice.
We understand that kids are supposed to relax and have fun in the summer, so we never assign homework. Each day, before beginning the new lessons for the day, we review the material from the previous day with our students. We find that this way students stay on the same level because no one is practicing extra at home.
Small class sizes full of kids your age means you will meet your new best friends.
Group sizes are 4 to 10 children, so that all children receive adequate instruction, attention and care. Children also feel comfortable making friends with their fellow campmates when we keep class sizes this small. It only takes 5 days to feel confident. Come out to meet your new best friends!
Perform for your family and friends, to show off your new talents!

High School Musical
If you like Musical Theatre, dancing, singing and acting, you will love our camp!
Musical Theatre Camp is a lot of fun and teaches you how to sing, dance and act like your favourite stars!
Here is what you will be doing throughout the week:
- Strengthen your singing voice for the stage
- Master cool dance moves to show your friends
- Learn how to perform and be like your favourite actors
- Conquer your fears of performing for an audience
- Make friends along the way!
- Kids and teens who participate in performing arts score higher on exams
No previous singing, dance or acting experience is necessary, so everyone feels welcome.
We assume that all students arrive with little or no experience in musical theatre. Our certified instructors start by teaching you the basics, so you don’t feel overwhelmed. From there, you will learn cool dance moves and tricks, how to sing fun theatre songs for a crowd, and how to act just like your favourite movie stars.
Studio Nine’s certified instructors make learning fun and easy.
All of Studio Nine’s certified singing, dancing and acting teachers have plenty of experience working with kids and teens. They teach you the basics first, then show you how to grow on stage. You’ll be a star in no time!
Our teaching methods help you learn fast.
Our certified teachers design easy-to-learn choreography with our students in mind. All of the choreography is accessible for kids and teens in their specific age group, and helps develop their existing muscle and skill.
Singing, dancing and acting is great exercise, so your parents will be happy.
Singing tones our muscles, increases lung capacity and helping regulate breathing. Singing also builds a relaxed, yet tall and confident posture. That means that singing is a great exercise. Dancing builds strength and flexibility, but is also really fun.
Our summer camps help you get over your shyness and meet new friends.
Are you a bit shy? Our small classes are the perfect place for you to learn how to express yourself. With only 4-10 kids in each class, students receive exceptional attention while building confidence in their own time. We want you to feel comfortable in our positive learning environment, so we make sure to keep similar ages and skill levels together. This way no students feel overwhelmed or bored with the instructions.
Theatre lessons tie all of your skills together, so you will be a superstar in no time!
Theatre requires extreme movements, expression and style. Without these distinct and extreme movements, the crowd watching the performance may not see exactly what each actor is acting out. Theatre classes increase fitness, strength and coordination, as students must develop their motor skills until they are suitable for the stage.
Learn about different characters, then act them out yourself.
Acting out different characters lets you learn about different roles and personalities, and how to problem solve in different ways. They learn from the experience of the character they take on. This helps our students later in life, as they encounter new situations.
You will have fun learning and preparing for a final performance.
Students will spend the week preparing to perform a musical theatre production (think Glee, High School Musical, Into the Woods, Disney films such as Frozen, etc) for their families at the end of the week. Students will be given the chance to direct, act and sing in a production, as well as participate in set making, costuming and make-up design. Instruction will be given in acting, singing, dance and stage-blocking. By the end of the week, you will know all there is to know about stage performing. From there, you can pick their favourite role and follow it.

With our methods, you learn really fast because your band chooses the songs.
We find that you learn faster when you play a song you love. Our Rock Band Summer Camp takes student requests, so that our certified instructors can teach you exactly what you want to play. We help guide the rockers so they choose songs that are appropriate for their personal playing level and abilities as a group, but ultimately our students decide the songs we play.
Small classes help you make new friends that stay your friends forever.
Students of similar age and skill levels are placed together in classes of 4-10 teens. Not only does this help create a positive atmosphere for learning, but it also helps our students build friendships. Friendships based on musical compatibility are often long lasting and valuable. Come meet your new bandmates!
Our instructors actually play instruments themselves, so you get the full experience.
Don’t know a drummer or a singer? Never had a chance to jam with a saxophone player? No worries, our class is open to all instruments and vocalists. Take this opportunity to use the knowledge and skills you have developed in your private classes and put it to use. Surround yourself with like minded people who play a different instrument. Collaborate, Create, and Rock Out!
We cover all of the rock band bases, so you get to choose what role in a band you like best.
A rock band has a few players. Some students like songwriting, while others prefer smashing the drums. In our Rock Band Camp, you get to try out a bunch of different instruments before choosing which one you want to play.

Studio Nine Early Childhood Certified Instructors keep kids engaged longer in a safe, non-competitive environment
Our highly trained early childhood music instructors know exactly how to keep your children engaged in a positive way, while teaching them valuable skills. Does your child show an interest in music but you don’t know where to start? Do you want your child to have a foundation in piano, but have fun while they learn? Are you looking to try out piano lessons for your children, but don’t want to make a long term commitment? Our kids summer piano camp is a great place for your child to explore their skills and learn to express themselves through music.
Studio Nine Early Childhood Programs are proven to have more lasting effects
Our program incorporates games and crafts that will not only make the lessons more fun but they also help the students retain and recite the information better and faster. Studies show that when young students learn with games and fun exercises they retain more information, have a more positive learning experience and will continue longer in their field of study.
The intro to piano program uses games, stories and physical activities to teach the fundamentals of music education in a fun and engaging way.
Students will actually play their way through the music program, sing and dance their way to an understanding of complex ideas and concepts and listen to engaging stories all designed to create a deep understanding of musical concepts and ideas. Of course they will also spend a LOT of time playing and working directly on their own keyboard to develop the skills and learn some songs. This unique program will teach students the right way to play the piano with fundamentals that they will use for the rest of their musical lives.
Our small camp sizes mean more attention for your child that builds better interpersonal skills, communications skills and teamwork
Many children work and learn better when they are able to work with their peers. Our program works with small groups where students interact and work together on both the piano and their other activities. This helps them build interpersonal skills, communication skills and teamwork. Together they learn and play and grow in a positive environment under the instruction of our teachers. Our ideal class size is 6 students but we can work with groups as small as 4 and as large as 8, never any less or any more. This is an excellent size for young students to receive personalized one-on-one instruction from the teacher as well as build friendships with their peers. We want your children to receive the absolute best instruction and care when you sign them up for our kids camps.
No daily practice required, so your young children can have fun, stress-free
Every day the students will review the material from the previous day before they move on to new material. There is never an expectation for the students to go home and practice before they come back the next day, especially with the younger groups. We want you to have as much quality time with your kids as possible.
Classes are grouped by age levels, so all children feel comfortable
We know that young children mature and develop quickly. Our program is offered in two specific age groups for students: 4-year-old class, and 5/6-year-old class. Not only will students have a better time being surrounded by students who are the same age as them, but they will also learn better and faster because the program is written specifically for their age and level of development.
No parent participation is required, so mom and dad can sneak in some relaxation time
Students absolutely learn faster when their parents are involved, but in this summer program the classes do not include parent participation. Students will learn to work independently and directly with their teacher and their peers. This is excellent practice for students who are entering kindergarten or grade 1 at school. Many parents want their children to have a little more experience away from mom and dad before school begins.

- Learn different songwriting techniques, so you can pick your favourite style
- Learn how lyrics merge with rhythm and melodies
- Sing your own song for your family
No musical background is required for our class, so all students feel welcome.
Even though we only offer this class to teens, we do not expect anyone to have any sort of experience in music or in writing. We teach students how to work with writing tools and techniques to build a solid foundation from the ground up. The goal is to challenge students, but within reasonable boundaries, so that they have fun along the way. We also teach students the basics of musical language because we find this helps our young songwriters get a feel for the musical knowledge required to advance.
Our teachers are all certified Studio Nine instructors, so you know you will have fun.
The Studio Nine School of music is a prestigious, yet affordable, option for your musical pursuits. Our summer camps are a great opportunity for you to try out musical instruments without any huge commitment. These same instructors are available for private lessons year-round.
Our methods teach you fast, so you can have fun the rest of the summer.
During our 5-day Songwriting Made Simple Camp, our teachers guide you through exercises designed to improve your songwriting skills and knowledge. We want our students to use their existing creativity to develop song forms, melodies, rhythm, harmony and lyric writing. Our certified instructors use creative and interactive exercises designed to build confidence and create success.
We group songwriters and musicians together, so you can make new friends who play different instruments.
In our Songwriting Made Simple Summer Camp, we pair songwriters with teens who want to play instruments. This way you can learn from each other. If one prefers to just write, another can sing their lyrics. Students of all instruments and disciplines are encouraged to join so you will have the ability to write with peers who have a different background.
We help you feel good about your songwriting skills.
We want our students to learn how to collaborate, and give constructive and positive feedback. We believe that regular feedback and collaboration is a great way for students to grow. Especially in songwriting, a student may need a fresh set of eyes or ears to understand how their song is evolving. This way everyone improves and grows together, in terms of writing and the musical aspect.
You will know how to write complete songs, so you can be on your way to stardom!
Our goal is for you to be able to write complete songs by the end of the week, and understand the mechanisms behind this writing. In our program, students will gain the ability to rework their thoughts, work on multiple projects at one time, and work to complete songs through the entire camp.
We host a final performance, so you can see what happens at every stage of making a song.
Throughout the camp students will have the opportunity to have their songs performed for the class, either by themselves or by their peers. On the final day students will perform a concert for their family and friends with selections of songs they have written over the course of the week. This is a great opportunity for students to engage in all aspects of songwriting and performing. Students have the option of performing their own song, or letting another perform it for them, so everyone feels comfortable throughout the class.
