K&M Music is the best training center we have experienced in Canada and USA, the instructors teach the theory of music, and based on that the student practices classic compositions, students cannot and are not allowed to memorize the music but rather learn the theory of music, I would recommend this center to everyone who wants to learn music fundamentally.

K and M Music Company has been greatly influential in my life. Both Mrs. Katherine Dvoskin, and her husband, Michael Dvoskin, go above and beyond not only to teach you their respective instrument, but to assist you in other learning aspects regarding music that may arise throughout your musical education. Both instructors are patient, generous and incredibly professional. Not to mention tremendously dedicated to their students ambitions for success.
