MUSIC. EDUCATION. OPPORTUNITY.™
Husband and wife team Christian Bell-Young and Karen Bell-Young opened their home-based music studio in September 2017, with the goal of building a comfortable and creative space where personalized and enriched musical experiences for all ages and abilities could occur. Read our story here.
Students of CBY Music have achieved great success. Our students have earned leading roles in professional musicals with Drayton Entertainment and Theatre Aquarius, as well as with local community theatre companies. Our artist development path, in conjunction with our record label, has helped students grow as songwriters and recording artists and helped them prepare for global, commercial release. Many of our vocal students have won numerous scholarships at local and provincial vocal festivals and students on our exam-track consistently achieve first-class honours with distinction with the RCM and Conservatory Canada.
And with our expanded programming, including The CBY Music Choir, our "Aspire Series" of masterclasses and our newly-added "Acting for the Camera" course (led by award-winning Canadian film and TV actor Alysa King) CBY Music has quickly become one of the most sought-after private performing arts studios in the Hamilton/Halton region.
