Music school

We'll wake the artist within you

We teach the art of music

We've been teaching musicians and artists for the past 30 years.

Coda Music School was founded in Longueuil, QC in 1993, where it grew for 20 years on Sainte-Hélène street and almost four years in the Estuary. Since 2007, Coda has opened a second school to serve clientele in and around Ville Saint-Laurent. It is located on Thimens Blvd near the Bois Franc district.

Over the years, Coda has always maintained a reputation of offering quality lessons given by experienced teachers. Their courses are adapted to the needs of each individual student, be they: development, learning, discipline, personal culture, pleasure, well-being or challenges. With individualized courses, Coda is there for you, regardless of your age or your musical level.

A tax receipt is available for students under age 16. Furthermore, Coda is an educational institution recognized by Revenue Québec (accreditation number 14-07-0160), that permits music professionals to deduct their expenses related to the development of their art and practice

Don't hesitate to contact us! It is our pleasure to respond to your questions!


Coda offers courses for everyone from 7 to 77 years and from all skill levels.

We adapt to the student's goals and can offer lessons in both popular and classical music.

The students will have the opportunity to play in concerts twice a year on a voluntary basis.

  • Tanya Karamanos

    Violin, Viola, Piano

    Tanya is currently in leave and will be back in September 2021. Having begun her musical studies at the age of four, Tanya has been surrounded by classical music since her early childhood. She was nominated for musician of the year at her high school graduation at Place-des-Arts in Montreal, Quebec. As a pianist, Tanya studies with many influential piano pedagogues on the Montreal piano circuit. Moreover, she has also played in piano masterclasses for Suzanne Goyette and Loraine Prieur. As a teenager, Tanya won 1st prize at many classical piano competitions in Montreal. Loving both piano and violin, Tanya decides to focus on her violin studies when she completes her collegial studies with great success in classical violin under the tutelage of famed violinist Vladimir Landsman at the École de Musique Vincent-D'Indy in Outremont, Quebec.

    In 2009, Tanya completes her Bachelor's degree in Music at Université de Montréal. After completing her bachelor's degree, she is admitted to the Graduate Diploma of Advanced Performance Studies at Concordia University in Montreal which she completes with great success in 2011. At Concordia University, Tanya had the privilege of studying classical violin performance under the late Yaela Hertz. Tanya recently completed her Master's Degree in Music in violin performance at the University of Akron in Ohio with great success. Through the years, she has also developed an affinity for the viola.

    She also holds a Certificate in Leadership from Concordia University which she was pursuing while attending the University for the Graduate Music Performance Program.

    Parallel to her concerts and teaching, Tanya is regularly invited to perform alongside contemporary musicians of the Quebec and Canadian scene.
