The PGCM is a registered non-profit music school that strives to provide the highest quality of music education and performance for students from beginner to professional levels. The Conservatory offers one-on-one lessons in a variety of instruments and musical styles and provides a number of group lessons and performance ensembles. The Conservatory also provides a diverse concert season including performances by our faculty and the Caledonia Chamber Choir.

Music is an essential part of any child or adult's education and life experience. Learning an instrument can improve a child's concentration, coordination, character (through diligent practice), self-confidence (through performance), appreciation of different kinds of music, and ability to express ideas and emotions. In other words, a quality music education can provide kids with the tools they need for success in life.

Discovering different genres of music through playing an instrument can also be an incredible life-long joy. If you want to fall in love with music, then the Prince George Conservatory of Music is just the place to do it!
