About Ekko Studio

In early 2021, Ekko Mindful Music Studio opened its doors in the heart of Downtown Dartmouth as a socially conscious enterprise. Founded by Adam LeBlanc, a passionate music educator with over a decade of experience, Ekko strives to create positive and stress-free environments that are inclusive and welcoming to all.

As a social enterprise, Ekko is driven by a dual purpose: to provide exceptional music education and to make a meaningful impact in our community. We are committed to fostering an environment where music becomes a catalyst for positive change, transcending traditional boundaries and creating connections among individuals from diverse backgrounds.

At Ekko, we firmly believe that learning music should be an enjoyable and empowering experience. Our high-quality music lessons cater to students of all ages and skill levels, while our team of experienced instructors is dedicated to creating engaging and fun lessons. We aim to inspire and uplift our students, enabling them to discover their true musical potential.

By choosing Ekko Mindful Music Studio, you not only embark on a journey of musical discovery, but you also contribute to our social mission. Your support helps us fund initiatives that bring the joy of music to underserved communities, empowering individuals who may not have had access to music education otherwise. Together, we can create a harmonious society where the transformative power of music reaches all corners and enhances lives.

In 2022, Ekko expanded its vision to encompass Ekko Wellness, an invaluable addition offering counseling therapy and music therapy services. Our adept counsellors provide a safe space for children, teens, and adults navigating the complexities of mental health challenges. Through evidence-based approaches, we guide our clients to explore their innermost thoughts, cultivate effective coping strategies, and attain harmonious equilibrium.

Experience the synergy of music and social impact at Ekko Mindful Music Studio, where the notes we play reverberate beyond the studio walls and resonate within the hearts of our community. Join us in nurturing a culture of inclusivity, creativity, and positive change through the universal language of music.
