Frequently Asked Questions:

How is P.E.N. helping with back-to-school?

We are happy to announce that the P.E.N. doors are open and we are receiving students for classes and private lessons once again.  We realize that some families prefer to stay online and we are fully prepared to continue online with you.

P.E.N. has the technology and the facility setup to ensure students can learn safely.

  • Students can choose to attend their classes online or onsite (please note some classes are online only)
  • Maximum students per onsite class is six (6) in general classrooms
  • Our Town Hall can accommodate a maximum of 12 students safely
  • Although we have some iPads available for students to use in class, we encourage our students to “bring your own device” (tablets / laptops) to minimize sharing
What tools does P.E.N. use for online learning?
At P.E.N. we actually extend the classroom by using interactive technologies that allow the students to engage as though they were in the class with the teacher. This includes group activities and assessments. In fact, our teachers receive immediate results from class assessments and quizzes to confirm each student is progressing. It is also a great way for mom and dad to know how their children are doing.
What are the qualifications of your teachers?

When it comes to our education programs, we put quality above quantity.

The P.E.N. Education Centre only hires Ontario Certified Teachers (or equivalent) or industry experts for our academic courses. Our music faculty have a minimum of a BA in music. In fact, you may find that most of our teachers hold MA or PhD credentials in their fields.

What does Enrich Empower Exchange mean?

All of the academic and music programs at P.E.N. are designed to enrich every student’s education by empowering them to be self motivated and confident learners in a healthy environment.

P.E.N.’s international program will develop academic exchange opportunities for our students, and for students abroad, that want to expand their global perspectives . This exciting program is at the heart of the P.E.N. spirit.

Do you offer RCM Music exam preparation?
Yes indeed. All P.E.N. Music students prepare for RCM examinations and we prepare the students for a university career in music
What instruments do you teach?
Piano, voice, flute, saxophone, clarinet and trumpet.
What academic courses do you offer?
