Our Story

As a young teenager, Locomotion Music founder David Viva fell in love with music – especially with his guitar. He went on to pursue his passion by studying music at The Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles and then returned to Toronto to play in several local bands. For the next 20 years, life revolved around touring, gigging, writing and recording, all while teaching guitar lessons and running a music school in Brampton. In 2013, David decided to start his own business. Locomotion Music was born and has now grown to include hundreds of students throughout the GTA, over 40 teachers and multiple community music programs.
His wife and business partner, Sabrina comes from a background of working in hospitals and with nonprofit organizations managing volunteers, developing programs & partnerships, fundraising and event planning. After many years in the nonprofit world, Sabrina moved over to Employee Engagement, Corporate Social Responsibility. Working for a private start up out of the U.S., for 7 years Sabrina had the opportunity to consult with Fortune 500 companies on their employee volunteer programs. As a Director of Account Management and Latin America Initiatives, she had the opportunity to work on projects with the United Nations and travel the world working with multinational companies developing their employee volunteer programs. In 2018, Sabrina made the leap from the corporate world to a business owner when she joined David to grow their own family business. Today, Sabrina runs the day to day operations of the business; David continues to teach guitar and they both manage the overall business together.
We welcome you to the Locomotion Music family, where music is home, and home is family.
