Compass Music Academy founders and professional musicians Ben Leggett and Eric Treleaven have teamed up and are poised to open their doors with a philosophy that “The process of achieving your goals should be as much fun as the achievement itself.”

The two have worked together on the Juno-nominated “Floods and Fires,” by Craig Cardiff and countless other musical projects, both live and in the studio.

They want to share their wealth of musical knowledge with members of the community. They have pursued music very passionately as a hobby growing up, and through their hard work and desire to learn and improve, they have turned their musical passions into careers.

Private lessons are offered in guitar, bass, drums, piano, ukulele, and voice, and will begin Sept. 11.

Workshops in recording, songwriting, instrument technique, instrument maintenance will begin in fall of 2017 and are first come, first served.

At Compass, the duo says the goal is to teach in a way that makes music more accessible than through “traditional” methods and focus on performance based teaching with a goal of playing music with other people.

With that in mind, the two felt that an exciting approach should be taken in concert with their launch. The much anticipated “Rock School” program will launch in the fall of 2017 where interested students will be placed into bands and coached by industry professionals in weekly rehearsal sessions, and be given public performance opportunities in the city.

Compass Music Academy will be hosting a registration and open house Tuesday, Aug. 29, as well as the following Tuesday, from 5-7 p.m. at 1180 Cassells St. in North Bay.
