Downtown Vocal Music Academy Open House

Is your child passionate about singing and performing?

Are you looking for an opportunity to harness your child’s creative and dramatic potential?

Junior and Intermediate students now have another educational option in the downtown core to develop their musical talents. The Downtown Vocal Music Academy (DVMA) is a TDSB school which offers an enriched music education for students in Grades 4 to 8 who have demonstrated a passion for choral and solo singing, musical theatre, and the performing arts in general.

Students at the DVMA attend a full day programme in which they divide their time between academic classes focused on the Ontario Curriculum, Music, Choir, Dance, and Visual Arts classes that develop their creativity and performance skills. The DVMA is a performing school where the students have the opportunity to sing every day, to create and make music, and to form relationships with other students who share their interests. Students become part of a close and caring community, and a culture that balances academics with personal leadership, character development, creativity, and innovation.

Each student must complete an application and attend a singing workshop held at the school to be considered for a place at the Downtown Vocal Music Academy. Students entering Grades 4 to 8 in September of 2018 are welcome to apply for admission. More information about Downtown Vocal Music Academy can be found at our website:  

The DVMA will be holding an open house in early January for students and families interested in admission. The open house will be held on Thursday, January 11 at 6:30 PM. The school is located at 96 Denison Ave. Toronto, ON M5T 2N1. The open house presentation will also be posted on our website if you are unable to attend.

Applications will be available online and in person at our school from January 12, 2018 onwards.   Applications will be due on February 16, 2018. If you have any questions please contact the school at 416-393-1340 or email
