Inspired Minds Music is a warm, comfortable and inviting school which is large enough to offer a wide variety of programs, but small enough to ensure we have a personal connection with all of our students and their families. We offer programs for students of all ages (from preschoolers to retirees!) and skill levels. Our talented faculty offer instruction in a wide variety of styles and disciplines.
Inspired Minds started in January 2015 in Mississauga, Ontario as a small In-Home lesson provider. Originally offering only private lessons for piano, voice and guitar the studio was generating significant success and the the dream of opening a physical location was quickly becoming a reality.
In mid-2015, Founder Tristan Cook chose to relocate to Kingston, Ontario to be closer to his family. His father is a Queen’s graduate who chose to retire in Kingston. This meant closing shop in Mississauga, and taking a brief break from teaching.
In 2016, the dream and vision was still burning bright, so Tristan worked to build a student base through In-Home lessons in the Kingston Area. As success continued to grow, Inspired Minds opened their first location in September 2016 at 805 Bayridge Road. It was a small studio with a large waiting area, a private teaching room, a group teaching room and tiny reception nook. With continued success in the first year (including being named one of Kingston’s Top 3 Music Schools (ThreeBestRated,ca) and a desire to offer new programs with additional teachers, it was clear we needed to expand into a larger location.
Our Current School
Now, we are in our second year and second facility. The studio features a large reception area with coffee, tea & snack station, a large waiting area with Wifi and Netflix, a group lesson studio, a large ensemble lesson studio, and two additional private lesson studios. All of our facilities are furnished with top of the line equipment for our students and teachers to use.
