Here are a few important things for parents to consider when they consider musical instruction for their child at any institution.
SAFETY AND CERTIFICATION
Safety first. Parents should know that the Manitoba Conservatory of Music and Arts performs background checks on all staff and faculty members when hired, and every 2 years thereafter. This includes a Child Abuse Registry check.
Certification: All Faculty are certified teachers with a minimum Bachelor’s Degree in Music and a proven teaching background.
Along with being respectable citizens, our faculty must be professional-level musicians. To ensure this, all Faculty must pass an audition before being hired.
Finally — to ensure they are good teachers, their performance — including student and parent evaluations — is monitored every year.
