Performance Classes

There are currently 2 opportunities for students to develop their musical gifts through performance classes. These choirs are great fun and offer significant value, and public performances are always well attended. Both ensembles will perform at the Legislature in December 2015.


The Taylor Flute Ensemble is a 32-week program beginning September 16th. The ensemble is conducted by flautist Dorie Gold with rehearsals taking place in Studio A of the Conservatory. Please note the new day and time Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m.

The cost to participate is $400 for the year. The fee includes two concert performances, all music and a music folder.

This exciting opportunity to participate in a community flute choir is open to beginner and intermediate adults.

The minimum age requirement for private lessons at the Conservatory of Music at Taylor is age 6. In certain circumstances children may be accepted at age 5, depending on the individual teacher.

Our violin teachers have experience teaching both the Suzuki Method and the Royal Conservatory exam program.

If you would like to take a trial lesson (30 minute lesson at the teacher's current fee) with a teacher of your choice please contact the director. Trial lessons are only available if the instructor's studio is not full.

For more information, contact Conservatory Director Leslie Mahr.
