Fall 2021 Program Updates


As we begin the exciting process of re-starting the Conservatory's in-person programming we encourage you to check this page frequently for program-specific updates. We will make changes to program instruction and delivery as health guidelines evolve.


Please feel welcome to email conservatory@mtroyal.ca with any questions or concerns. We are hopeful that more musical instruction will take place in-person in the months ahead and we thank you for your continued interest in the Conservatory! 


Fall 2021
Updated September 21, 2021 

Private music lessons 

Private lessons for music, Speech Arts & Drama, and voice will continue online through the summer but will resume in-person at the start of the Fall term. Our students and instructors are excited to resume face-to-face lessons even as they continue to excel virtually and offer online lessons. Learn more about online lessons or in-person registration for the Fall semester.


Group Music and Speech Arts & Drama Programs 

In-person delivery of MRU Conservatory Speech and Drama group classes is paused due to concerns related to COVID-19. 

Our fall semester classes will begin as scheduled, online.

In light of the escalating number of COVID-19 cases in our community and our desire to protect the health and safety of our students, we have made the decision to launch our fall semester online.  We are committed to resuming in-person instruction as soon as possible and anticipate that this is a temporary measure.  We appreciate the feedback provided by parents and share your concerns. 

The relaunch of in-person classes will be reviewed on an ongoing basis throughout the semester, with Thanksgiving as our first target.  We will not make a return to campus until we can do so with confidence.


Academy & Advanced Performance Program

The Academy and Advanced Performance Program will return to in-person instruction effective March 15, including the chamber ensemble classes. The deadline to apply for the 2021/2022 program is June 30.
