A few words from our newest family member, Mr. Ashif Govani:

“In 2016, I was fortunate to be introduced to a couple of successful brothers – Pat and Maurizio Di Rauso, CEOs of Arcadia Academy of Music. With their vision and pioneering spirit we partnered to open the first West GTA school in Burlington on April 10, 2017. Growing up in steel town Hamilton in the 80’s, you needed to have a liking to rock, so I was exposed to AC/DC, Rush and Ozzy. I was always a big fan of Michael Jackson, Prince and Grand Master Flash, just to name a few. Today, the greatest satisfaction for me is to hear my students playing this music! I am honoured to be able to fulfill my lifelong dream of owning my own business and to bring the Arcadia footprint to the Golden Horseshoe. Together with my wife Lina and son Aidan, we are enthusiastic to be involved in the community and connect music with the growing interest of young students and adults alike.”
