Masks on campus: Find out where and when you need to wear yours.


The Conservatory of Music at MacEwan University gives students of all ages and aptitudes the opportunity to develop and explore their musical talents. From Music in Early Childhood to advanced theory and technique; from ensemble performances to one-on-one coaching for passionate or professional musicians, we encourage students to recognize and realize their potential. 

Learn in an environment that respects your artistic talent and supports your aspirations. Group lessons, private lessons, clinics and ensemble classes are offered year-round on a variety of instruments, including voice. You do not need to be a student of MacEwan University to take lessons. Classes are offered at the Alberta College Campus, Allard Hall and online.
