The Ontario Conservatory of Music has offered high quality, fun, and educational music lessons with qualified teachers since 1939. We welcome students and aspiring musicians starting at four years of age, and from all experience levels. It's never too late to start learning a musical instrument!

Our courses for children have been carefully selected and refined to ensure your child succeeds. For adults we offer private lessons on an informal basis, and are happy to match the needs and goals of each individual. Exams are not mandatory, and lesson times are flexible. If you're just getting started and don't have an instrument, we have them available for rent!

What are the benefits to studying music?

  • Character - Music education is an important step to broadening knowledge and character.
  • Confidence - The ability to play an instrument creates poise, self-assurance, initiative and leadership.
  • Healthy Attitude - Relieves tension and stress, creates healthy attitudes, well-being and mental awareness.
  • Discipline - Music is a constant study of discipline and one of the best ways to learn the necessity and value of it.

Lessons are $20 each (preferably paid monthly in advance) and are scheduled once a week, unless additional lessons are desired.
