Welcome to a community with a proud tradition of integrity and a strong commitment to excellence. In addition to private lessons with our experienced teachers, we encourage students to take advantage of the following special privileges:
Our School holds monthly Studio Recitals on our new Steinway grand piano in the Chopin Room. Studio Recitals provide students with a valuable opportunity to perform for a supportive audience, as well as listen to their peers. Our Studio Recitals are free for all performers and audience members. Proper dress code is emphasized.
The School offers a variety of specialized enrichment classes for a range of ages. In order to enhance their musical knowledge and create companionship in a fun, musical environment, participation in these classes is encouraged.
- Piano Play (ages 5-8)
- Studio Club (ages 9-11)
- Creative Music Program (ages 9-14)
- Piano Ensemble Program (all ages welcome; minimum RCM Level 4)
- Masterclasses (all ages welcome; minimum RCM Level 8)
Group Discount Concert Tickets
Part of music students’ education is to attend concerts. Therefore, we often arrange tickets at reduced prices for the Vancouver Recital Society, Vancouver Symphony and Vancouver Opera, and organize field trips to special events. We encourage parents to share these pleasures with their children.
Access to an Extensive Music Library
Our School has a wide variety of over 1,000 records, tapes and CDs as well as hundreds of music scores, many of which are now out of print.
Championship Cups & Gold Medallions for Theory Students
We have a proud tradition of offering the finest training in all theoretical subjects. In order to encourage achievement in theory, the student with the highest mark in each grade will be awarded a Championship Cup. Additionally, students who receive 95% or higher in Theory Levels 5-8 and students who receive 90% or higher in Theory Level 9 – ARCT (Harmony, Counterpoint, Analysis or History) will receive a Gold Medallion.
Scholarships for Piano Students
Our School awards scholarships for high marks in exams, festivals and studio contests. We continually wish to encourage more donations to our Scholarship Fund so that we can reward more students for their achievements.
