Ontario's 2nd Largest non-profit School of Music
Welcome to the Algoma Conservatory of Music, a non-profit music school located at Algoma University. Established in 1971, Sault Ste. Marie has become home to one of the largest and finest music schools in Ontario. From our professional violinists, singers, flutists, guitarists and pianists, to our many youth orchestras and choirs - there is hardly a music event in Sault Ste. Marie which does not involve one of our many resident instructors or the students they train. Many of our faculty have relocated to Sault Ste. Marie from across Canada to teach at the Conservatory and through Algoma University's Music & Fine Arts Programs, bringing their performance and teaching experience to hundreds of students every year.
A full range of group music classes are offered for young children, as well as private instrumental and vocal lessons for all ages with outstanding teachers. In addition there are several levels of youth orchestras, group violin & cello classes, youth choirs and guitar ensembles; as well as music theory and history classes to meet the requirements for Royal Conservatory of Music examinations. We also host many student concerts and special events including: Algoma Conservatory Concerts - featuring some of the finest touring ensembles and soloists in Canada and the U.S..
Other community services at the Conservatory include the Kiwanis Music Festival; an instrument rental program and sales of top quality Yamaha pianos at excellent prices.
The Conservatory's extensive educational programs and concert series are maintained through collaboration with Algoma University as well as through the support of Canadian Heritage, the Ontario Arts Council, the City of Sault Ste. Marie and many of our community's businesses and individuals.
