Make the music you want to hear

All musicians benefit from one-on-one instruction. By honing your musical instincts and building your playing or singing skills, physical stamina and mental discipline, private lessons improve your ability to fully express your creative musical potential.

Most people benefit from lessons of one hour per week, although younger students may need to begin with 30-45 minutes. Those who are self-motivated and take lessons more frequently will find their playing improves at an accelerated pace.

At the Conservatory, our instructors have decades of real-world professional experience and the skills to guide every level and age of learner. If you have never touched an instrument before but love the idea of making music, or are a working music professional looking for some objective feedback, we can help you.

Our Popular Music program is guided by James Desautels, an award-winning musician, songwriter, producer, composer, conductor and Grammy® voting member who has worked with everyone from Itzhak Perlman to Pearl Jam. Whether he is your instructor or shaping your learning environment behind the scenes, Jamie is thrilled to share his expertise to help you take your music further.

The Conservatory is also proud to offer you some of Calgary’s best music facilities. Our new home — a spacious 90,000 sq. ft. facility featuring large music studios, rehearsal halls, spaces to practice and the stunning 700+seat Bella Concert Hall — offers you a unique place to learn, meet new friends and be inspired.

We believe that with an open mind, dedication, a creative environment and the right teacher, every student can bring more of themselves to the music, and better music to the world.
