About us

About us

We are a family-run music school serving High Park, The Junction, Roncesvalles Village, and surrounding areas of Toronto's west end. Over the past eight years, High Park Music has expanded from a home-based studio to a school now bustling with many students and teachers.

The owners / operators, Lori Oussoren and Michael Savona, were both trained in Toronto and abroad, and now live in the High Park neighbourhood with their two young children.


Our beliefs

We believe that the benefits of music lessons are multifold. The benefits of early music lessons range from boosting a child’s academic scores to increasing confidence and self-motivation; music lessons can promote early reading ability and can help prevent memory loss among older adults. Music lessons can help teach a child to focus and can help develop better problem-solving ability.

We believe in the value of music lessons in teaching our children transferable skills such as self-discipline, perseverance, independent problem solving, and self- motivation.

Finally, we believe that music lessons are a long-term investment; learning an instrument well gives us the opportunity for life-long creative expression.
