Hi, I'm Rebecca!


My philosophy is centered around teaching children to love music.  And to love music, it helps to be able to play your instrument well!

After teaching violin at The Kingsway Conservatory, I founded Upper Beaches Music School in East Toronto. 
Now The Lane School Of Music, we're growing to meet the need in West Toronto.

 We're here to help you find perfect balance of enjoyment and excellence in your family's musical journey.


Where will the new school be located?

We're soon moving into a beautiful, sunlit space at 2489 Bloor Street West.  We'll have 8 studios for private teaching, one large room for groups and on-site parking.

Will lessons be in-person or online?

Online lessons will continue throughout the summer.  We will resume in-person lessons in September (if restrictions allow) with safety protocols like screening, masking, and plexiglass to protect students and their teachers. 

Who are the teachers?

We are so pleased to welcome the following teachers to our faculty:

  • Andrew Frost (guitar)

What is Upper Beaches Music School?
