meet darryl & michelle 

Darryl has been involved in music his whole life...but in 2007 he created his passion of owning a music store while still in his firefighting career.  Retiring after 30 years, he decided to take it to the next level and purchased a building in Walkerton, where we live.  Michelle was born and raised here and has great family ties to this town.  We now proudly offer our customers a grand 2 level store with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Guitar Teacher

We are proud to offer our students the opportunity to learn with Matt Preece.  Matt is a full-time grade 5/6 teacher in Southampton and has been playing guitar since he was in grade 5.  He attended the Bond School of Music in Niagara Falls, where he developed his skills as a singer/guitarist.  Matt is extremely talented, and you can currently find him playing weekends in Bruce County as a duo or in his full, 4-piece country band, The Golden Horseshoes.

meet ana

Piano Teacher

We are pleased to offer our piano students the opportunity to learn with the highly accomplished, Anurandi Norbert.  For the last decade, Ana has diligently pursued a career as a pianist performing, adjudicating, and educating.  She has obtained a Master's Degree in Music Education and accumulated a diverse range of skills as a collaborative pianist performing alongside solo musicians, vocal jazz ensembles, and ballet dancers.  Ana has taken great pride in helping students create lesson plans that allow for student autonomy.  She believes that a music teacher's role is to help students develop their critical reasoning skills and design their own music journey.  Ana brings an approachable and fun personality to our lesson program and is an eternal source of encouragement and inspiration for budding pianists of all levels.

*There are only a few spots left available on Saturdays with Ana, please contact us to reserve your spot!

"So happy with BOTH teachers!  My kids loved lessons.  My son was beaming after his lesson and my daughter can't wait for the next one.  Thanks Darryl for having a space for our kids to learn and have fun!"
