Meet Your New Teacher

Hello there! I'm so glad you're here, ready to take the next step on a musical journey! Over the past decade, it's been my joy to teach hundreds of students of a wide range of ages, skill levels, and genres, at both my home studio and arts high school studios in Toronto.

Born and raised in small-town Ontario, not far down the road from London, I'm delighted to be returning to my roots to re-launch my teaching studio in the heart of this beautiful city. I'm passionate about holistic music education, helping my students grow as musicians and individuals, using teaching techniques based in the latest research. I believe in creating a safe, inclusive space for community through the arts - we are so much better together!

So - take a look around, or send me a message via the contact page. I can't wait to meet you, and to begin helping you (or your child) stretch those musical wings!

Musically yours,

Suzanne Schaafsma

From the studio to the world stage...

Training with Suzanne was truly eye opening, and with her, I found confidence and grounding in my classical singing technique. With her help, I was well-prepared for my application to a summer program with The Juilliard School in 2018, which I was accepted into and attended, as well as, to undergraduate programs for music. In the Fall of 2019, I began attending the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music for classical voice studies. As someone who is also pursuing a musical career in pop/r&b, I continue to use what I've learned in my lessons with her whenever I perform.
