The Conservatory of Music Enhanced Education (CMEE) was established in 1994 by Ida J Campana. She is a dedicated and accomplished piano instructor with over 20 years of teaching music lessons in Mississauga. Ida was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. Ida began piano lessons at the age of 7 and studied extensively with the Royal Conservatory of Music. She also studied with the renowned performer and clinician Elsa Hsieh.
Along with teaching hundreds of children and young adults in her music school in Mississauga, Ontario, Ida is an accomplished composer. She has written music for the yoga series “The Ability to Transform”; for charitable organizations such as “Interim Place”, and for students entering competitions & festivals. She has been featured on the television mentor series, “Spill Your Guts”, on Global TV.
In addition to her lifelong career and love of music, Ida also had careers in the marketing of consumer products and in politics. She also raised a family of four. All of this has given Ida the unique ability to teach and understand the training of each individual with a sense of humor, respect and compassion.
