Many instructors teach from September to June, however students ask to start every single month and there is almost always a teacher with an opening available in his or her schedule.

Individual music lessons at the Conservatory are taught one-on-one with an instructor.  Lessons are available seven days a week.


There are times when instrumentalists and singers need to work with a private accompanist/coach. The Conservatory has a number of outstanding accompanists who can help students prepare for an important audition, concert, exam, or music festival.

Cost: $22.50/half hour (pro-rated for longer sessions)

To register, please talk to your accompanist about how much time to book and call the Student Services office at 306-585-5748.
