About Crescendo Music Studio
Crescendo’s vision is to establish and maintain a music learning environment that is CARING, VIBRANT, & ENGAGING.
For well over a decade, Crescendo Music has been dedicated to providing students with high-quality music instruction. Crescendo is founded on the principle that all music learning should include music exploration, performing, theoretical knowledge, ear training, rhythm training, and listening exercises where many musical genres are discovered. Learning can occur in either a private or group setting, and a variety of music can be explored, from classical to rock, pop and jazz.
Crescendo Music Studios is a family-run business in Sherwood Park for over 15 years, started by Dean and Leanne Cummings. Crescendo was born from a desire to create an environment where high-quality, holistic music instruction happened every day. Their goal is to ensure the atmosphere of their music studio is encouraging, energizing, and purposeful for their teaching team, students, and families.
Crescendo Music Studios is so pleased to announce their Summer Camps and Group Programs are open for registration!
Musical Munchkins™ is a brand new addition to the studio this year. Musical Munchkins™ will give you a fun and rewarding experience as parents, babies, and toddlers engage with others in LIVE music! We will explore singing, dancing, movement, and instrument play, designed specifically for the “munchkins in your life” from babies age 6 months to age 4.
The classes aim to provide a holistic music experience and are designed to get your child engaged in music as we explore a variety of musical styles and genres. Our instructors will support you by choosing fun songs and activities to IGNITE a passion for music in your child (and you)! Enjoy our live grand piano, live guitar, live hand drums, movement, singing…and more in each class!
Each parented class is 1 hour in length and runs September to December. Crescendo Music Studio will also give parents an extra 30 minutes to visit after each class! NOTE: Two children in the same family will also receive a discount!

Crescendo’s Vocal Chorus
Crescendo’s Vocal Chorus is BACK! Much like a ‘Glee Club’ this vocal group will learn how to sing engaging music together in ensemble with others.
Students will learn to sing “in canon” and harmonize with each other singing contemporary music and a variety of other choral-friendly styles. Crescendo will teach the important vocal techniques you will need to know in order to create a powerful and healthy sound in our ensemble. They will add movement and other elements as we continue to advance our skills throughout the program.
At the end of each term, Crescendo presents a concert for the parents and they perform at the Sherwood Park Music Festival in April, if they feel ready to do so. For kids age 6 to 10 and 11 to 14.
Crescendo’s Group Piano
Crescendo’s Group Piano class is a keyboard-based music program for kids 5 to 7 that is designed to take you on a journey of music exploration including rhythm learning, singing, solfege, movement, piano playing, theory, and drumming to some fun and high-energy tunes!
This program has been designed for first-year or beginning piano students, and follows a comprehensive curriculum. The instructors at Crescendo’s are focused on providing age-appropriate activities and challenges for the group[ and the individual student! This program is designed to help grow a child’s ability to read and play music while also making music together in a fun environment with other kids their age!
Classes run from September through to June at Origin Road Music (#195, 130 Broadway Blvd. in Sherwood Park). Crescendo encourages everyone to commit to this 10-month term so that you and your classmates will get the post out of this experience.
This year, Crescendo Music Studios has 8 WEEKS of summer camps planned with their friends at A Charmed Affair!
Crescendo has returning favourites like Rock Band and Musical Theatre Camps, Superhero, Princess, Frozen, and Mermaid camps too!
