About Us

We are Experts Learning Institution

The Conservatory of Music Enhanced Education (CMEE) was established in 1994 by Ida J Campana.  She is a dedicated and accomplished piano instructor with over 20 years of teaching music lessons in Mississauga.  Ida was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. Ida began piano lessons at the age of 7 and studied extensively with the Royal Conservatory of Music. She also studied with the renowned performer and clinician Elsa Hsieh.

Along with teaching hundreds of children and young adults in her music school in Mississauga, Ontario, Ida is an accomplished composer.  She has written music for the yoga series “The Ability to Transform”; for charitable organizations such as “Interim Place”, and for students entering competitions & festivals. She has been featured on the television mentor series, “Spill Your Guts”, on Global TV.

In addition to her lifelong career and love of music, Ida also had careers in the marketing of consumer products and in politics. She also raised a family of four. All of this has given Ida the unique ability to teach and understand the training of each individual with a sense of humor, respect, and compassion.

Ms. Campana is a firm advocate of an ancient philosophy that simply believes that “Kids, who study music, don’t go bad!”

She is the author & publisher of her own series of technical books and learning materials which have been favorably reviewed by the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association, (ORMTA).  Look for Ida’s new children’s book series “Yes, I Can Play Piano – I Can Count To 7″ available now.  All of these books can be purchased as downloadable e-books from our online Shop at minimal cost, or as free supplemental resources.

Ms. Campana also hosts a series of tutorial videos, designed to help students continue their music studies online.  Find her on YouTube under Ida Campana.  For FREE theory lessons please check out our Musicnotes Blog.

Our Teachers

Every parent’s first question, after “How much does it cost?”, is “Are your teachers qualified?”  The simple and flippant answer would be, “Of course, they are!”

But the truth of the matter is that our teachers are more than just qualified.  They come from the top echelon of dedicated educators who have spent at least 12 years of their lives studying music, at great expense, and who have received their teaching credentials from an accredited music institution such as top-notch Canadian universities & colleges or from the Royal Conservatory of Music, based in Toronto, Canada.  This organization has been around for over 150 years and its teaching curriculum has set one of the highest standards in the world!  And we are pleased and fortunate that it is these teachers who have chosen to work for our Conservatory.

So, we can assure you that we have highly qualified, certified, experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated teachers.  But, how much would these qualifications be worth?  Well, much more than any lesson fee you will ever be asked to pay.

And now, may we ask you a couple of questions?  “How dedicated is your young musician to learning from our teachers?  How dedicated are they to practicing what their teacher will share with them?”

Let’s find out – together.
