Welcome to the Cote Saint-Luc’s Fortissimo Academy of Music and Arts where our goal is to spread the joy of music and art! Each year our highly professional faculty and talented students participate in classes, ensembles, competitions, appear at student recitals and concerts, proudly carrying on a rich tradition of studying and performing music. Our students’ age range is from 2 to over 80 years old. We are happy to provide opportunities for everyone to reach their own personal musical goals and fulfill their most sublime expectations.
Among our partners are the City of Côte Saint-Luc, the City of Hampstead, Agence Ometz and others. In the following years we plan to continue to expand our list of partners and patrons, to enrich and diversify our music and art program. At present we offer a comprehensive music education curriculum, which includes: solfege, piano group lessons, choral program, music history and theory, early childhood development and other classes, as well as a multi-level fine arts program, which; among others; boasts a unique painting class for 2 to 4 year-olds. Our art faculty is made up of professional artists and educators, each working in their respective areas.
In the future we plan to officially launch a financial aid program, which will serve our mission to provide accessible music instruction to everyone in the community, regardless of their income levels. Our most immediate plans include moving to a new, improved space within the same building, with bright new classrooms and a brand new art studio.
In the past year we became a registered charity organization and obtained a charity number. We plan to embark upon a variety of fundraising initiatives in the nearest future.
In the meantime you are encouraged to make a donation to the school via our Gifted Student Program by calling 514-836-6872 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
We thank you for joining the Fortissimo Family and look forward to introducing you to the magical world of music and art.
