Although both Downtown and Westhills locations are closed to the public, we are “open” and still teaching music!


The Victoria Conservatory of Music faculty, staff, and administration are pleased to announce that continued instructional support is available to all of our students through online platforms!


The VCM is shifting to remote learning through a variety of available platforms including Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, Google Hangouts, and other tools that can best support the individual needs of both students and instructors.


Current students- If you haven’t heard from your instructor yet, please reach out to them for specific details.


New students are welcome! Please call 250-386-5311 or email info@vcm.bc.ca for more information. Downtown phones will remain open from Monday to  Thursday from 9:00am to 4:00pm.


This is new territory for all of us and we are excited to be able to explore these new initiatives together and sincerely appreciate your continued understanding and support!

    I want to register for June and July with Anna Cal. I’m a current student. How do I do it if you’re closed?
