The table below contains over 100 courses, programs, and private lesson opportunities.

You can search for a specific program in three ways:

  1. Category buttons: Click one of the above blue category buttons, such as or to show all programs that match that category.
  2. Search by Age: Many of The Conservatory's offerings cater to specific age groups. To find courses based on age, enter the age into the Search by Age field below. This search can be combined with the Keyword Filter search (see tip 4, below).
  3. Course category tags: To the right of each course below are one or more tags such as these: children strings group. These tags have two features:
    • Hover your cursor over a tag for more info. Try it now: group
    • Click on a coloured tag to show only the courses that share that particular tag.
    • Once you have clicked a tag to narrow the list, you can click the same tag again to restore the full, unfiltered list of courses. If you click a different tag, you'll get a list filtered by that tag.
  4. Keyword Search: The keyword field will narrow your list of choices in the courses table as you type. For example, type "ensemble" in the keyword filter box to get all ensemble courses, then type "jazz" after the word "ensemble" to further narrow down the search. This search may be combined with the Search by Age filter (see tip 2, above).
