What Our Renters Say

I have been renting the space from Arraymusic for more than two years. The space is ideal for the type of work I do, which is teach groups of people who have been fearful of singing, to find a voice.
Orville Heyn Music Faculty – Humber College, The Banff Centre for the Arts
I have been running my jazz school from the Arraymusic studio for more than six years. … The Arraymusic studio is a perfect fit for my needs, offering a complete package: a spacious room, piano & other necessary equipment – at an affordable cost.
Howard Rees Jazz Instructor
I’ve been using Array’s studio for the last 10 years and it certainly provides an invaluable service to musicians like myself. The rates are reasonable and the staff is great. I’ve rehearsed everything from a trio to a 20-piece band in that studio.
David Buchbinder Trumpet Player, Composer and Bandleader
New Music Concerts has used the rehearsal space offered by Arraymusic on numerous occasions over the past few seasons and we are very pleased with the service provided. It is always a pleasure dealing with the helpful Arraymusic staff and we are pleased to recommend them highly.
David Olds General Manager, New Music Concerts
Arraymusic provides such a great service to the wider musical community through making their space available to artists outside of their organization. I was really grateful for the opportunity to work at Arraymusic and for a work environment which is unparalleled in this city.
Fides Krucker Contemporary Vocalist /Actor
It’s great to have access to a studio run by musicians who understand the importance of providing affordable rehearsal space. Arraymusic has been extremely generous to The Toronto Jazz Orchestra over the past seven years and it is inspiring to work in a space where making music is so clearly the top priority.
Josh Grossman Director, Toronto Jazz Orchestra
Arraymusic has always been available and flexible to meet our needs and rehearsal periods. It is a reliable venue that is much needed in the city.
Sandra Laronde Artistic Director, Red Sky Performance
Arraymusic has provided the perfect writing and rehearsal space for my quartet and I. There is no other facility like it in Toronto. It is invaluable to me.
