Royal Conservatory of Music
The Royal Conservatory of Music offers a graded system for students wishing to learn Piano, Voice, Guitar, Violin and Brass/Woodwind instruments using a more classical approach. Students will be paired with a qualified instructor and guided through theory, technique and performance. The program consists of 10 graded levels and is available to students of any age.
The Royal Conservatory of Music offers examinations in Calgary several times annually. Examinations will be administered by Royal Conservatory of Music representatives and will be arranged with the assistance of your instructor.
Rock school offers a graded system for students wishing to learn Piano, Voice, Guitar, Bass or Drums using a contemporary approach and popular music. Students will be paired with a qualified instructor and guided through theory, technique and performance. This program consists of 8 graded levels, and is available to students of any age.
The Rock School program originated in the U.K. and is brand new to Canada. Studio Nine School of Music is proud to be one of the first schools in Canada offering this program, and the ONLY school in Alberta.
Non-Graded Private Lessons
Students desiring a more casual approach to lessons can opt-out of Royal Conservatory of Music and Rock School programs in favour of non-graded private lessons. Instructors will still focus on theory, technique and performance in these lessons, however students will be given the chance to play a larger role in directing the lesson format and determining songs to be studied, as there is no pre-determined curriculum for our non-graded private lessons.
Students in our non-graded private lessons will be given feedback and input from their instructors, however standardized grades will not be assigned and students will not be formally tested.
We offer a variety of group lessons and specialty classes for children and teenagers, and we are constantly working to develop bigger and better programs to provide your children with fun and educational options for their music lessons!
