The Glenn Gould School: Nurturing Sustainable Careers In Performance

The Glenn Gould School is one of the foremost music schools dedicated exclusively to performance training. With a maximum enrollment of 130 students, the school offers a nurturing environment and close mentoring from its acclaimed faculty.

Building on The Royal Conservatory’s 135-year-old tradition of musical excellence, The Glenn Gould School was founded in 1997 to provide talented students of classical music with the skills and attributes necessary for professional success. It is also one of the few musical schools in North America that is integrated with a major performing arts centre, the acoustically superb Koerner Hall. This extraordinary facility gives students an edge when it comes to preparing for a professional career.

Not only are graduates of our programs widely renowned musicians who perform on the world’s stages, but many have successfully assumed leadership positions within Canadian cultural organizations.

The Glenn Gould School is supported by funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage through the Canada Arts Training Fund, and from the Ontario Arts Council.
