Yellow Dog Music A new breed of music school

Yellow Dog Music

Covid 19 – Message from the Director

THEY SAY LIFE TURNS ON A DIME–a pearl of wisdom we all now understand! Deeply. 
Thankfully, Yellow Dog, trained by thirty years of innovating creative music lessons, is uniquely poised to keep pace. By coincidence, we were already contemplating online lessons just when the necessity to move into cyberspace asserted itself.  So we had no choice but to shut down our Leaside studio, we are, compliments of blessed, modern technology, open as usual, but online.

Our teachers–all of them professional, working musicians–are set up to deliver lessons from their at-home studios, through the online platform. All you need is a device with a camera, plus the free ZOOM app,, to login. Why ZOOM? Because educators and musicians favour it. If, however, you prefer Skype or FaceTime, that’ll work too. As always, our whole crew is about accommodating our students.

It feels a tad counterintuitive, I confess, to express excitement in these trembling times. But honestly, I am fired-up by the potential of our online foray. So much is possible! There are the obvious, but not-to-be-taken-for granted, benefits: the joy of music and its therapeutic value, plus the chance for students to beat back boredom while their musical development keeps moving forward. Beyond that, we are brainstorming other online ways to make music together: group lessons, jamming sessions, musical playdates or our teachers performing online as a group. Bottom line: the Yellow Dog family is sticking together and sticking to our plan to make beautiful, immune-boosting music in myriad ways.

With gratitude and hope for the well-being of us all,

Katrina Anderson, Director
Yellow Dog Music
