Private Music Lessons

Our private music lesson program ensures that your child receives the critical foundational training that will enable them to be lifelong independent music learners!

The Music Enrichment Program (MEP) consists of four pillars – all of which are important in establishing a strong base for developing lifelong musical skills:

  1. Private Lessons ensure that your child receives personalized attention and expert guidance as they develop their musicality.
  2. Theory, History and Musicianship classes establish essential and often overlooked components of music study.
  3. Assessment confirms how your child is progressing for their discipline and level.
  4. Electives can be added to the program to further enhance your child’s musical development including ensembles or another instrument.

Every student enrolled in MEP receives:

  • One-on-one instruction with Oscar Peterson School faculty
  • Musicianship, theory, and history classes from the source! Study with experienced faculty, many of whom are Members of the College of Examiners
  • Solo and ensemble performances at our state-of-the-art facilities
  • Practical and theory books for each level of study*
  • Enrichment workshops with guest clinicians
  • Borrowing privileges at our extensive on-site music library
  • Final examinations** through the RCM Certificate Program
  • Access to digital theory courses and online ear training
*RCM does not have repertoire for all instruments/disciplines.
**Enrollment fees includes registration for two exams: one instrument-specific exam and one theory exam.
