As the principal of the York Region Conservatory of Music and with years of experience as an examiner, adjudicator, and music instructor, Victoria Gilbert Mendes has seen the incredible benefits of music study.She notes that music doesn't just increase a student's intellect but it also plays a role in contributing to one's social growth and character.

"By taking music lessons, one has to get prepared to go to that weekly class," explained Mendes."This results in responsibility.Secondly, one has to practice on a daily basis if possible.Again this incorporates responsibility, discipline, and dedication.These are just a few examples of what a student will take with them from their musical studies as they develop and grow throughout their teen years and into adulthood."
While many parents promote music lessons, support and encouragement are also key aspects in a child's growth."With each and every performance, students gain more confidence," said Mendes.
"Instrumental or vocal training is the study of simply an instrument or voice," said Mendes.

Ensuring her talent doesn't go unnoticed, with the aid of her vocal instructor Victoria Gilbert Mendes, YRCM principal and examiner for the Royal Conservatory of Music, Indigo Records released Morgan's debut solo album entitled The Black Swan last November. The album contains more than a dozen songs, all ariettas and musical show tunes that she enjoyed learning while studying with Mendes for the past seven years.

"The moment Holly began vocalizing at her first lesson, I discovered a hidden treasure," said Mendes.
Mendes, also a record producer, was more than happy to assist.
Little did Morgan know, or plan, to get the sudden outburst of public attention that she did. The local media jumped on the unique rising star.
"[The experience] has been incredible," she said.
"Holly progressed extremely quickly due to her enthusiasm and drive," said Mendes.
Mendes is also sending her to various opera master classes to study with professionals in the field.
She will be visiting Italy this summer to participate in her very first intensive opera vocal workshop.
