About the School of Music

For over 130 years, the School of Music has been inspiring individuals of all ages to pursue their passion for music through vocal and instrumental workshops, classes, private lessons, and ensemble training. 
Private music lessons are at the heart and core of our services, with programs offered year round. Students of all ages and abilities can receive solo instruction in a wide variety of musical fields, instrumental disciplines, and stylistic genres.

Private music lessons accommodate students’ personalized needs and match their unique desires and ambitions, whether that be introductory steps into their musical journey or building the foundations of professional pursuit in music.

Our groups and ensembles for all ages give a wide variety of stylistic and musical experiences in inspiring social settings.

We are proud that the School of Music supports the talent of our students through a wide variety of substantial scholarships and bursaries.
Our students have many performance opportunities throughout the year either as soloists or ensemble members in class and departmental recitals. General recitals are held in November, February, and April at the Lilian Piercey Concert Hall, featuring all age ranges of our intergenerational student community and are live streamed for audiences far and wide. Community performances are also hosted in venues such as the Halifax Central Library and Northwood Care Facility, adding more opportunities for live performance experience. 

The music faculty members of the Conservatory stand for excellence in their field and are dedicated educators who love to inspire and share their joy and enthusiasm for music with their students. 

All our teachers offer private lessons either at the Conservatory or from their home private studios.
