People Say The Nicest Things!
"I have had my kids learning at Forte for 2 years now, they have completed Jungle Music and then Music is Fun, my older daughter is about to start piano. I am enjoying learning with them. I can highly recommend their courteous and friendly teachers and staff."
"The atmosphere, dedication, creativity and enthusiasm at Canning Vale Forte School of Music. Our weekly lessons are one of the highlights of our week! A big hug and thank you to all the staff that work there."
"I have taken (my) children aged from 6 months up to 6 years to Forte music classes both here (Forte Canning Vale) and in Brisbane. Classes are fun and children are engaged from start to finish. Children are introduced to music from an early age and learn concepts such as beat, rhythm, pitch etc through fun, play based learning. This knowledge continues to grow as they progress and I have had 5 year olds playing keyboard with both hands, quite impressive! I would recommend this school to anyone wanting to introduce music to their children and to build a solid base of music for their future."

"All of the staff are welcoming, wonderful & treat both the children & parents like family and would encourage that to continue. I have not found anything you should stop doing."
– Lily, Learning Voice & Guitar
"I firmly believe music education is essential for children in their early formative years, as positive effects of music on cognitive, academic, social and artistic skills are now well documented. I have two children who are under tutelage of Mrs. Pik Kong of Forte Music school, for more than two years. Pik is one of the most committed and passionate teachers I ever seen, in any field. She established good rapport with my children who are now looking forward to their weekly lessons with her. My older child attends private piano lessons and my younger child is doing the Piano Key Course. I highly recommend Ms Pik Kong of Forte Music School,Mt Waverley if you're seeking superior music education."

"My two children have been involved with the Music is Fun and Jungle Music programs with Pik from Forte Music in Mount Waverley. The programs have given my children some great skills and confidence in performing to others as they work through their lessons each week. Pik has been a supportive and engaging teacher who is clearly passionate about developing the skills of her students. The programs are a lot of fun and facilitates the learning needs of each child. My children are always excited to go to lessons and look forward to playing the variety of instruments on offer and singing along to their favourite songs. I highly recommend Pik and her team at Forte Music."

"All the staff at Forte are extremely welcoming and friendly to everyone and make you feel at home. My child gets so much from the lessons and looks forward to coming each week. Everything about the Music is Fun class is great. It teaches the basics of music in a way that is fun and easily understood by children."
"Forte Music school has surpassed our expectations in all aspects - Pik and her teaching material is as top notch at it gets. The kids get involved through play and activities...music is learned through tunes, jingles, charts, little play activities and a sense of music instead of boring books. My daughter loves going to Pik's music class!"

Unfortunately Alice will not be returning for music lessons at Forte in September. She is leaving primary school and has been given a music scholarship at the Cathedral School. This includes music lessons at the school during the day. If it wasn't for this she would be continuing at Forte until she was 50 (her words - apparently that's really old!!). I spoke to Sarah last night and she said she would let you know - but wanted to let you know too.
It is impossible to put into words the impact that music lessons at Forte has had on Alice. Weekly lessons have been an important and happy event since she was 5. She absolutely loves music and it is simply part of her life now.
Needless to say that the scholarship would never have been possible without the fantastic lessons (piano and violin) she has had with some excellent teachers (Miss Claire, Miss Sarah, Miss Sophie G and Miss Kristina). The opportunity to play at the WMC and St Ffagans every year has made her a confident performer which has been so helpful for school performances and exams etc. She seems to take them in her stride which is a reflection of how well prepared she has been thanks to her teachers and the whole supportive Forte environment. A massive thank you to all at Forte.
Fortunately for me Seb is continuing with his piano classes as I can't imagine not making the journey to Danescourt a few times a week! I might even need to sign up for lessons myself!"
"The staff are brilliant with the children and are enormously patient with them which is wonderful."
"The Jungle Music program is fantastic! The school is very welcoming and the teachers are wonderful."
"I work at Forte Dee Why and it is a true pleasure seeing the kids learn and develop but most of all have fun doing it! Highly recommend Forte Dee Why."

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your support throughout my time at Forte. You have helped me to grow and flourish as a teacher which I really appreciate. I wish you and the school all the best for the future.
"To Jane & Suzanne,
Genuinely thank you both so much for everything. I feel like you've helped nurture me to become the young woman I am today......I feel like I've gone from a Caterpillar into a butterfly :-)
Lots of Love."
