  • 1,000 seat Auditorium rises with wrap-around tiered seating (some seats are actually above & behind the stage performers! Light woodwork motif makes you feel like you're inside the hollows of a gigantic guitar!!
  • Attended an event in February and it was such a great time. Staff was all smiles and hospitable!
  • Royal Conservatory publishing now puts the prices on their books up whenever they can. Cutting sales discount margins on the local music stores.... then aggressively selling books directly to students. My local music store has been selling RCM books for 40 years and now with my teacher discount it's not worth him stocking Royal Conservatory. RCM is pushing out the little family stores that have supported their books for decades. There are tons of great repertoire books that are far more affordable to the average family folks. Disgusted by these new practices and greed. Frederick Harris is NOT a not-for-profit organization don't be fooled. Myself and many peers will not be using RCM as there are many equally good programs out there. You can get a great music education without Royal Conservatory. Support your local print music retailer they are dropping like flies.
  • Very elegant and well-maintained building, beautiful architectural elements provide wonderful atmosphere, very professional space
  • Be careful. Not only did they botch the dates I wanted for my son's exam, they booked him for the wrong instrument and kept calling him the wrong name in correspondence. With 3 weeks notice they told me they could not accommodate my preferred dates. Even with the faults being on their part they refused to provide even a partial refund for my exam fees. I am so disgusted by this organization I have pulled my children from classical music lessons and moved them to other activities.
