The Glenn Gould School was established by The Royal Conservatory in 1997 to provide gifted young musicians from Canada and around the world with unparalleled opportunities to prepare for successful careers as professional musicians.
One of the few music schools in North America dedicated exclusively to performance, The Glenn Gould School had immediate success because of its visionary emphasis on the critical elements that compose a truly great music training institution: small classes, additional weekly studio time with internationally renowned faculty, and a comprehensive master class program that provides students with regular opportunities to perform with and learn from some of the greatest performers in the world. Over 125 master classes are offered at The Glenn Gould School each year, making this program one of the most extensive of any music school.
Students of The Glenn Gould School come from virtually every Canadian province and from over a dozen countries around the world, including the United States, Russia, Germany, China, South Korea, and Chile.
