Royal Conservatory of Music Reviews
Koerner Hall is a magical place. Not only beautiful and extremely calming to sit in and appreciate for it's textural and aesthetic qualities, but it has acoustics to rival just about anywhere. Drinks.... more »
Really enjoyed the experience! I simply can't wait to visit again once things get back to normal! I really like how the performers engage with the audience. more »
The school is focused mainly on traditional western classical music that's old and irrelevant, and like some have said, students aren't trained to play without a score. Come here if you just want to get exam certs and work laboriously on perfecting your classical music performance. Otherwise, if you want to learn about music creation or production, don't even think about it. Their website isn't informative, just wanted to see what teacher exams are available, they don't even have a list, found a list in the "exam fees" page though! Can't even find what's in those teacher's exams, could only see their online pedagogy course promotion which is about watching few minutes of videos from great teachers, but the rest is your job to submit assignments and respond to posts. Wasn't helpful at all, at least in my experience. And courses offered online don't even have a wide variety.
Beautiful historic building which once served as McMaster University. The Royal Conservatory is a legendary Canadian heritage site, home of the Glen Gould School and the Phil and Eli Taylor Performance Academy for Young Artists. In 1947 King George VI incorporated it's Royal Charter. With the old Mazzoleni Concert Hall and the new magnificent Koerner Hall, the Royal Conservatory offers world-class concerts. Known to many students for their comprehensive exam system with 10 performance Levels, ARCT Performers and Teachers and a corequisite Therapy program, the Royal Conservatory of Toronto has a monopoly on an exam system rivaled only by Conservatory Canada.
