Important Information for VCM students

During severe weather conditions, the Victoria Conservatory of Music may make the decision to close the Downtown and Westhills locations and cancel or reschedule classes based on transportation and safety issues.

The VCM website is the best source for up-to-date information about the status of our campuses. You can also find information about closures by checking the VCM Facebook , VCM Instagram or VCM Twitter pages, or by calling our Downtown location at 250-386-5311 (please note if we are closed, phones can not be answered).

Administration staff will be working from home during their regular hours.  Please do not hesitate to contact various staff or Departments by email, as found here.  For general enquiries or for students & parents to reach our Registrar’s Office Front Desk staff, please email them at [email protected].  The inbox is being monitored during business hours and we will get back to you.

If you are signing up for group classes, you can search for them online here and for many of them, you can also register and pay online.

If you are wishing to register and/or pay for Studio Instruction (Private Lessons), you will need to either email us at [email protected] so we can email or phone you back, or wait until the building is open again to visit or phone us.
