Arcadia Academy of Music - Newmarket offers several programs that strive to provide students the opportunity to approach music on their own terms.
From rigorous conservatory programs to open-ended contemporary programs – students will have the opportunity to find a learning style that best suits them. We also offer a wide array of group programs that range from band to theory classes to allow students to meet and grow alongside like-minded peers.
----- PROGRAMS ----- - Music Theory Program: Each level of theory in the RCM offers a progression-based learning environment that builds upon a student’s understanding of musical concepts. Starting from Level 5, students will learn eight core principles that subsequent levels will further reinforce and expand. For a brief look into each level, read below to see how the progression works across a `student’s musical theory journey.
- Songwriting Course: In this 16-week program, students will learn how to write and create their own original songs but also learn how much of the music they listen to undergo the same process.
- Arcadia Rocks Band Program: The program runs 2-3 times a year. There are 2 segments, October to January and March to June that will run for 14 weeks each; once a week rehearsal for 12 weeks, then in week 13 there will be a live performance at a venue determined by the host location(s). On week 14, each band will be able to record at the Arcadia Woodbridge Recording Facility in Woodbridge OR a recording studio approved by Arcadia Head Office.
