The Royal Conservatory is a provider of Additional Qualifications (AQ) courses for members of the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT), under Regulation 347/02 . We meet the rigorous standards for governance outlined by the College, and are guided by a distinguished Advisory Panel. These qualifications are added to individual teaching certificates, which are publicly available at oct.ca.

The Orff philosophy is an internationally recognized approach to teaching music in schools or group classes, fully aligned with Ontario Ministry of Education (2009) Arts Curriculum for music K-8. With the Orff approach teachers learn to foster student musical performance, literacy and creativity through carefully sequenced musical experiences using songs, games, rhythms, poems, dances, and stories from around the world. Participating teachers receive training from specialists in recorder playing, vocal techniques, the basics of movement education, playing percussion (Orff) instruments, and the Orff philosophy of music education.
