About Us


Mastery is located on the University of British Columbia campus. Because of its proximity to a number of elementary and secondary schools, it offers before and after school lessons and programs as well as lessons at lunch hour and on weekends catering to the needs of busy families. Our teachers are trained professionally and bring excitement, passion, and strong pedagogical standards to every student. There is a spirit of excellence fostered as soon as you step into the school. The end result is to draw out of every student an interest in music and an ability to provide creative expression through strong technical skills.
