A Note from Margrit
It was during my studies at the University of Toronto that I started my music-teaching career. One of my professors who had four children found out I lived very close to him in Scarborough and volunteered me to teach his children. That was in 1971. I taught music part-time on and off for the next twenty-five years.
In September 1996, I hung out my shingle and registered Neighbourhood Music Studio. The name came about, as my married last name is Voisin meaning Neighbour in French. It just seemed right.
I am most grateful and very blessed for the 3,000+ students who have attended NMS throughout the years. We continue to share some wonderful musical time together.
My professional staff of teachers and I are here to teach well-rounded lessons.
I am available by email 24/7 and by phone every day except Monday and Wednesday after 2 pm as I’m personally teaching.
