Canyon Entertainment Group, known for representing up and coming artists, is using their knowledge of music and the music industry to help aspiring kids and young people achieve their dreams. The Academy has already had great success with the formation and skyrocketing praise of the all-girl pop-rock group, Girl Pow-R.

Canyon Entertainment Academy has been launched to fill a gap in the training and education of young musicians and singers in their quest to becoming true artists and professionals in the music industry.

Today, Canyon Entertainment Academy announces the opening of their new school which has been launched to fill a gap in the training and education of young musicians and singers in their quest to becoming true artists and professionals in the music industry.

With the launch of the Academy, Canyon is bringing their passionate way of teaching children and young people about the music industry to everyone. At the core of the Academy's offering are Performance Training courses which integrate the important skills required for success:

  • Learning songs and memorization tricks
  • Choreography
  • Playing an instrument while singing
  • Stage presence
  • Impressing the audience
  • Showing your style
  • Getting ready to perform
  • Stage and mic techniques
  • Ways to ‘give back’ as an artist

For years, most music and vocal teachers have had a very mechanical and 'by the books' approach to teaching aspiring artists to sing or play an instrument. And, there has not been an integrated school to bring this together through Performance Training.

Canyon Entertainment Academy is here to fix that issue by having passionate teachers and a curriculum that allows students to not only learn about music from those who love their work, but students will also learn how the music industry works from people who represent independent music artists.

Canyon Entertainment Academy wanted to create the Academy after the success the company has had helping to form the all-girl pop-rock group Girl Pow-R, which is a group of talented young women from ages 11 to 16 whose first original single “Krisi” debuted on November 24th, 2017.

The girls have toured all across Ontario performing over 65 shows in 2017, and they also have a full-length music video shot entirely in Ontario coming out in early February 2018. This shows what talented young people can accomplish with the teachings that Canyon Entertainment Academy provides, along with dedication, practice and the proper resources.

The Academy's program allows for the student to participate in a variety of different sessions to work one-on-one with one of the talented teachers with deep industry experience, to learn how to play instruments such as guitar, piano, ukulele, violin, or brass instruments, as well as vocal training.

Beyond the instrument and vocal instruction, the Academy also offers a 16-week Performance Training program consisting of 6 graduated levels to help students learn how to put their musical talent into practice. Canyon Entertainment Academy also offers courses in song writing and music production and recording. All of this passion and talent means that the teachers at the school are enthusiastic about their work and are looking forward to teaching current and aspiring artists who are equally excited about creating great music.

With the knowledge and expertise of the teachers available to all students, any person between 5 and 25, with a passion for performance, can be the next award-winning musical artist.
