What do our students have to say?

“Dave Viva has been my teacher for 9 years. He is more than my teacher; he is a friend. Dave knows exactly what his students want to learn and will tailor his teaching style to what works best for you. Dave knows how to gradually push his students to new level in their playing, consistently making new strides. I cannot recommend anyone else who puts this much effort and energy into teaching his students.”

– Cameron Gray (guitar and bass student)

“I will keep this simple. The folks at Locomotion Music are the best. My daughter and I have both had lessons with them for over a decade. They are the best. Period. The most talented, polite, reliable & enthusiastic teachers out there. What more could you want? Choose Locomotion for your musical tutoring. You will not regret it.”

– Mark Johnson (adult guitar student)

“Because of what some have called his energetic and “natural” style of playing, James has been a sought-after drum teacher. Through his irrepressible enthusiasm, James communicates his passion for music to his students. He is a compassionate, sensitive and energetic teacher who wants to bring the best out of all those who study with him.”

“What could be better than having a musical instructor come to your home? The teachers at Locomotion Music have been filling our home with music, fun and positive energy since our kids were in grade school. They are such a positive influence and musical perfectionists. They are part of our family and life has been such a joy having them instruct our boys. Our oldest son was accepted into the strings program at Etobicoke School of the Arts (ESA) and a large part of it was because of Dave Viva at Locomotion Music. The very best musical experience you can have.”

– Parent of students
