The One Piano Player Challenge

Let’s find out what we can accomplish together! Our next school-wide challenge – The One Piano Player Challenge – beings on Friday, February 1! This challenge will run for 12 weeks, and throughout these 12 weeks we will be focusing on TEAMWORK! The rules are very simple. For each week, your classroom teacher will award maximum of 10 points to your class based on:

  • Homework completion.
  • Overall class participation and engagement.
  • Effort invested into playing and singing together as a group (like there is only ONE PIANO PLAYER in the room!)
  • Overall progress week after week.
  • Parent participation/engagement during class. (Parents should participate too!)

To receive 10 points, your class must show excellent progress from week to week. Teachers will also be permitted to award up to 5 BONUS POINTS throughout the challenge for weeks where classes show EXCEPTIONAL progress.

Classes that earn 100+ points before the end of the challenge will be treated to peanut and tree nut-free cupcakes at the end of the challenge!

Individual students are also welcome to participate in The One Piano Player Challenge! Please ask your teacher about the modified challenge rules!


  We are excited to announce that our Annual Junior Original Concert is coming up, with a very special addition. As many of you know, the Junior Original Concert is an event where our Senior Students are provided with the opportunity to showcase their original composition pieces. This year, it is with great pleasure that we dedicate our Junior Original Concert, and the amazing works of our students, to the Hospital for SickKids. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness for their new development plan, Project Horizon, in order to bring the best in class healthcare to kids in need.
