Although you’ll find some awesome music events that take place here, due to the size of the area (It’s not a big city like Los Angeles), learning music production, especially EDM can be quite challenging. However, Recording Connection actually has a location here so I guess it’s a sign of things to come.
You will definitely find the usual guitar schools and piano lesson places (Some really good ones are here if you want to up your chord progression game) but definitely limited when it comes to professional music production.
About the City
The Golden Horseshoe is a region of Southern Ontario that is shaped like a horseshoe around the west end of Lake Ontario. The center of it lands just about where Burlington and Hamilton meet. The neighborhood there are a mix between the highrise-filled cities, and the cottage countries of Lake Erie, Prince Edward County, and Barrie. It also includes an area of Ontario referred to as the “green belt”, which provides most of the agricultural land in the province.
Niagara Falls may be one of the most famous features of the Golden Horseshoe area but it’s the entire Niagara Escarpment that is sanctioned as a United Nations designated world biosphere site. Whereas, the Niagara-on-the-Lake area is known is a known wine region with many amusements that support the tourist industry surrounding the falls.
The most expensive areas to live and visit in the Golden Horseshoe lie along the shores of Lake Ontario and Lake Erie, with downtown Toronto having the highest cost of living, but gentrification has caused many of the suburban areas to develop quickly into medium-to-high income communities. Education is a major focus for the Ontario government and many of it’s best schools are located in the Horseshoe, from St. Michael’s College for boys to Appleby College in Oakville, from the prestigious University of Toronto to the acclaimed McMaster University and its teaching hospital.
For entertainment, residents of the Golden Horseshoe are spoiled for choices, from the arts and entertainment districts of Toronto and Hamilton to Paramount Canada’s Wonderland theme park to the ski hills of Blue Mountain and Horseshoe Resort.
