Teaching Info

Simply Music is the largest playing-based music education institution in the world. It presents a piano learning method that looks at music in a totally new light, and pioneers a new direction in music education. Its revolutionary approach profoundly differs from the more common, traditional “reading-based” methods making it fun and enjoyable to all ages.

Music Rhapsody was developed by internationally renowned
music educator, Lynn Kleiner and is a fresh approach to early childhood music education. Through the use of unique instruments, puppets, and a no-hurry approach, young children are engaged every step of the way. Young students are fully prepared for Simply Music piano lessons and learning other instruments through their participation in this amazing program.
The Simply Music Rhapsody journey begins at birth and continues for a lifetime.

Singing lessons focus on technique, breath support, story telling, tone, performance and song writing.

Our daughter Jordan joined Eliette’s Music Academy last year for piano and individual singing lessons. Prior to coming to Eliette’s my daughter had done 2 years of piano lessons with no real progression however with the Simply Music Piano program she started playing tunes from her first lesson. It’s been truly remarkable. We were happy to find a musical outlet for our daughter who loves piano and singing. Eliette stimulates and stretches her musical ability at each lesson. We feel blessed in being part of a successful music school. I commended Eliette’s Music Academy for their commitment to quality.


My daughter absolutely loved Music Rhapsody Preschoolers class and also the Simply Music Piano Lessons. Eliette is fantastic with kids and an absolute talent when it comes to her wide range of musical skills. Cannot recommend highly enough!


Excellent teaching, our daughter loves Eliette's patience, kindness, humour and the challenges Eliette sets her. The music is always current and great choices for Jenna's voice, which gives Jenna even more confidence. Jenna also takes piano lessons and it's awesome seeing those skills develop so quickly.
