Windsor-Essex, Ontario – Saturday, June 17, 2017- Elite Piano Studios is proud to announce the grand opening of their recently completed new music facility located at 3315 Banwell Rd. in Windsor, Ontario, featuring world-class student instruments, accomplished and veteran music teachers and acoustically engineered recital space. During a time when many were leaving the region for other opportunities, Lisa and her husband Luke Heney found an abundance of opportunity right here in Windsor-Essex.

“We made the move to Windsor from Kingston, Ontario and started teaching piano out of our living room,” said Lisa Heney. The community support was immense, and soon we purchased and renovated our first two room studio. The students kept coming, and more growth was only a short year and a half away. Our new space is a music enthusiasts dream. It allows us to offer everything that we have wanted to give our students and community, from purposefully-built Grand Piano rooms to expanding our services to include guitar, voice, songwriting lessons, summer camps, and workshops. Our Mission as a studio and business is simple; to offer the Windsor-Essex community the absolute best in musical education.”

Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens wished Elite Piano Studios congratulations and continued success. "On behalf of City Council and all of our residents, I want to thank Elite Piano Studios for their investment and confidence in the Windsor market. The city will continue to support businesses in the arts sector because we know it is both an economic driver and an essential part of life in Windsor. Congratulations to Elite Piano Studios for your expansion and relocation in the City of Windsor."

Stephen MacKenzie, CEO of the WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation (WE EDC) added, “Seeing growth in our creative sector is an excellent indicator of the health of our overall economy. We are actively engaged to help foster expansion and increase opportunity in this ecosystem, as outlined in the research report WE EDC produced with a focus on identifying the regional strengths and opportunities for music as an economic driver in Windsor-Essex.  As an outcome, the Music Advisory Council was formed and is hard at work identifying initiatives to help local music businesses grow.”
