Kollari is committed to a Philosophy of Performance that provides our students constant and varied opportunities to take their learning outside of the classroom. Our calendar is here to provide you with all of the details for our seminars, competitions, and concerts. As the goal of our events is purely for student growth, admission is always open to the community, free of charge!
With a specially designed and acoustically treated Concert Hall, as well as sound-engineered classrooms, our facility is equipped with the proper and dedicated resources for our students to succeed. During a regular week at Kollari, students might take part in a concert, attend a music theory workshop, as well as engage in one of our seminars.
If you are a member of the Greater Toronto community, you are always welcome to join us during our live events and performances featuring the students and staff of our school, in addition to a lineup of guest musicians and speakers! And, don’t forget to always check back as we are constantly updating our calendar!
Benefits of Performance
- Learn what it feels like to play on stage
- Develop an ear for playing larger spaces
- Learn about different instruments and styles of playing
- Share your talent and knowledge with the community
Our music seminars include lectures and masterclasses that delve into a wide range of topics, including in depth analyses of different musical periods, right up to emerging trends in music technology. Music education is an ongoing journey and our seminars are designed to feed our students with knowledge and understanding from multiple angles in order to become well-rounded musicians. They provide them with the opportunity to discover new schools of thought that may pique their interest and even give birth to a new passion!
Performing is a key step to becoming a confident and inspired student. We had this in the forefront of our minds when we designed our school to be able to host its own concerts, with our very own Concert Hall. Our performance-focused curriculum gives students the opportunity to achieve the feeling of playing for and with others – an indescribable sensation that enriches the lives of our students in ways that only the sharing of music can achieve. Kollari students thrive on the opportunity to showcase their talents alongside their peers, and they also discover that the advent of a competition steepens and accelerates their learning.
What Our Students Say
“My daughter, Martina, has been educated musically by Yevi and Mimosa Kollari for over 10 years now. They developed Martina’s musical skills and most importantly they showed her to play with passion. The Kollari’s are very dedicated in helping their students grow to become successful musicians and confident persons.”
James Ortiz Luis
“My dream has always been to sing on stage! Kollari Institute of Music has helped me achieve that dream and so much more. The teachers are passionate about teaching and that passion transforms our dreams into reality. I started lessons with Kollari Institute of Music almost five years ago. To date my entire family are taking music lessons with the school… What I love the most about this establishment is the way Miss Mossa and Dr Yevi treat us. We are NOT students – we are their family, their children, and their friends! Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for us.”
“My children have been attending music lessons at the Kollari Institute of Music for 8 years. I am very pleased with the level of commitment by the staff to engage my children to explore their artistic ability with the piano, guitar and singing. My childrens’ teachers are exceptional in their ability to teach, collaborate, and bring them to new heights! This music school has provided many opportunities for my children to showcase their talents through RCM, music performances, and other opportunities for competitions and band programs. The director Mimosa, has been a pleasure to work with since the first day I walked in. She is flexible, supportive and has helped to motivate my children to learn music in a warm and inviting environment. Thank you for bringing music into my home!”
“Our children Mark and Naomi have been with the school for more than 15 years and have experienced great teaching in violin and piano. I dare say that Mimosa and Yevi give their very best to each child and are always willing to accommodate requests or address any concerns we may have. Monthly concerts at the school and the annual Christmas concerts at the Richmond Hill Performing Arts Centre provide the students the exuberance of public performance, the pride of personal accomplishment and the focused discipline required for it. You will never sense this school as a business entity. It is a place where music thrives enriching the lives of young and upcoming musicians.”
