Meet the owner

A Sharp School of Music owner Nicole LeGault perches at the piano bench of a practice room, strawberry-blond hair tucked into a ponytail, pink-nailed hands folded demurely together. But when she belts out a song that reverberates through the room, you realize this dame is dynamite.

Though Nicole is serious about songs, her work space is upbeat and kid-friendly. Olaf the smiling snowman and Sven the red-tongued reindeer (both creatures from the movie Frozen) grace the top of her piano. An "indestructible" metronome shaped like an owl beats out the rhythm for her young students.

There are eight music studios at A Sharp School of Music - six contain pianos, one has guitars, and one sports a snazzy drum set.

Nicole has been tinkering with tunes all her life. “I was always very musical,” she says. She began playing piano at age five, and by age eleven she was playing pop music. Nicole began singing to accompany herself. “I had the melody and the pitch but I didn’t sound good,” she says, adding that she hoped to someday become a lead singer. So at age 19 she found a voice coach, embarked on intensive lessons and fulfilled her dream of becoming a lead singer, performing with the all girl punk band Fidget.  “It was a lot of fun – the singers get all the glory,” she says.

Nicole eventually became a music teacher but she was frustrated by her employers’ financial priorities. One day she decided to open up her own music school where she could tune in to the needs of her students– “a fun, safe place that was not all about the money,” she says. She called it A Sharp School of Music, with “sharp” representing a pun on the adjective as well as the term used for a half tone above the note of A.

    A Sharp is a wonderful music school. We have been attending since my son was only five and he looks forward to his lessons every week. We are scheduled for a piano exam with the Royal Conservatory this August and A Sharp have been continuing his lessons online using skype, which was pretty easy to set up and the online setup at the school is very professional - same music studio, and his same teacher. My sons teacher is wonderful and we are feeling well prepared and ready for the next level.

    A type of school the owner is never there, very difficult to get hold of her(her job is music, why should I spend my time during my work day to chase her?) When I raised the issue of several teachers giving up giving of working with this schooll damaging my daughter learning, the school then, takes a teacher who doesn't not even know to tune her own instrument as I saw her asking a guitar teacher to do so. Plus never gives parents the weekly report about how the student is doing, like all other

    My son has been taking violin lessons with Braedon at A Sharp and he loves it. Nicole and her team are professional, friendly, and have a passion for music. Already recommended them to several people.

    Warm, wonderful music school. Our 5 year old son has been playing piano for 2 years, and under Ms. Nicole's tutelage has improved steadily and is so proud of his playing! Our 3 year old daughter has lessons with Ms. Sarah who is great with kids, our daughter loves her lessons. Fantastic place that gets the best out of your children, we highly recommend it. Although we have moved from Etobicoke to Oakville last year, we still make the drive here each week... we would not go anywhere else! A++

    Great place for lessons

    I would recommend this school to anyone, the staff and instructors are patient and qualified, my kids are having a ball and I'm happy because I appreciate that musical discipline is very good for them in many ways.
