For Prospective Students

WHY CHOOSE THE CONSERVATORY?

 

  • We are Manitoba’s premier independent music education institution (established in 1984); a community of musicians, for musicians, by musicians (our founders were all musicians) – achieving a higher level of musical instruction because the instructors, students and staff are all infused with the passion and discipline, joy and camaraderie of music.
  • Our teachers come with the highest qualifications to teach from beginners to the professional level.  Our teachers rank among the most effective, inspiring teachers in the province.  All Conservatory faculty members have a BA Music (or higher) or an equivalent academic, performance and teaching experience.  Many of the instructors also have active professional performing careers outside the classroom.  Their passion to play is the living example that inspires students to better themselves in the classroom, and keeps the instructor current in the music community.
  • We offer a free consultation to new students to match student needs with teacher strengths.  Finding the best student/teacher combination will enhance the student’s learning, achieving and enjoyment of their musical experience.
