Feel the Rhythm of Burnaby, British Columbia

Located just east of Vancouver, Burnaby is a dynamic city with a rich musical landscape. With its wide array of live performances, engaging festivals, and cultural vibrancy, Burnaby invites music enthusiasts to explore and enjoy its fun-filled festive season.

Dynamic Venues and Live Performances

The Michael J. Fox Theatre is a premier location for concerts and cultural events. It offers state-of-the-art facilities and an intimate setting that enhances the live music experience.

Local spots like The Rec Room and Central Park Pub regularly feature live music in a casual setting. These venues provide a cozy and engaging atmosphere for enjoying performances by local and touring artists—a great way to end the day with friends and family.

Festivals that Celebrate Music

The Burnaby Blues + Roots Festival, held annually at Deer Lake Park, draws music lovers from all over the region. This festival showcases a diverse lineup of blues, roots, and folk artists in a stunning outdoor setting, creating an unforgettable experience for attendees.

Another notable event is the Burnaby Summer Theatre Festival, which includes a variety of musical performances as part of its programming. This festival celebrates local talent and offers a platform for specific artists to connect with the community through music and the arts.

Supporting Local Talent

The Burnaby Summer Theatre Festival allows ambitious musicians to be noticed. It is an excellent opportunity to showcase local talent and for artists to share their music and shine. This community must encourage people in the arts as its list of successful people includes Michael Bublé (Canadian Singer), Luca Fogale (Canadian pop singer-songwriter), Matthew Good (Canadian musician), Cory Weeds (Canadian jazz saxophonist) and Craig Berkey (Canadian sound engineer). Even though none of these people mentioned made their career by sitting at the piano, we won’t hold that against them. It appears a lot of talent comes out of Burnaby.

This is the first time on my tour of Canadian music schools that I’ve seen something like this. A special spotlight goes out, not to a piano teacher but to the city. This spotlight shines on Burnaby’s Harmony For All program. This program promotes music education and gets instruments into the hands of the community. The program doesn’t seem to support piano lessons but keep checking back as programs like this evolve.

Music Education and Workshops

With some pretty heavy firepower in the music education department, students should be able to find instruction on the instrument they choose. Burnaby seems to be a very musically active city worth investigating.

While in these writeups, I mainly focus on piano lessons, let’s leave the piano alone for a moment and focus on fine art workshops in general. This city has it going on when it comes to the arts community. Here, you can find Burnabys’ Fine Arts Activities for those interested in learning more about the fine arts.

Now, back to the piano. When you click on the Fine Arts activities music link, you are provided with a list of private music teachers you can enroll with for lessons; how great is that? And you guessed it, piano lessons are on the list, so start searching for that ideal teacher.

Piano lessons in Burnaby seem to be popular as some classes are already full.

Exploring Beyond the Music

It’s time to get off the couch, and instead of heading over to the piano for a practice session, head outside for some fun activities. While visiting Burnaby, take time to explore the city’s other attractions. Enjoy a stroll through the beautiful Burnaby Mountain Park, visit the Burnaby Village Museum to learn about the area’s history, or explore the scenic trails around Deer Lake Park. The city’s parks and cultural landmarks offer perfect settings for relaxation and outdoor activities.


Burnaby, British Columbia, is a musically active city offering a rich musical experience with dynamic venues, lively festivals, and an encouraging community. Burnaby invites music lovers to explore and take part in its culture and natural beauty. Come and feel the rhythm of Burnaby for some unforgettable moments.
