Undergrad Credit for Music Training at Taylor

The quality of music instruction at Taylor has long been recognized by other academic institutions, and Taylor now offers expanded opportunities for our Conservatory students to earn credit towards a degree program.

Many of the music lessons at the Conservatory of Music qualify for transferable credit to other institutions. Flute, piano, violin, voice – why not get credit while you learn? Study under our excellent instructors and gain a second valuable benefit, saving time and money during your post-secondary efforts down the road! 

Contact our admissions department to ask for details and to make sure that you qualify -- and make sure you take advantage of this great opportunity.

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.
