Welcome to the Southland Conservatory of Music Website!


Reasons which make us the better choice for you

1. Focus on Teaching: All we do is teach. We do not sell or rent instruments of music. This leaves us free to specialize in one thing - providing the highest quality of music instruction.
2. University Trained Teachers: Our instructors are highly qualified and many have extensive performance experience. Most importantly, our instructors strive to relate their teaching to each individual student's learning style.
3. All Ages - Beginners to Advanced: Our current students range from 5 years old to many students in their 60's and 70's. We take care to teach what you want to learn so music is rewarding for students of all ages and levels.
4. Private Lessons: Private lessons ensure that the student has the undivided attention of the teacher and can progress at a level suited to them individually.
5. Regular Concerts and Recitals: Recitals and concerts are held at least twice a year. These provide students with performance experience and build confidence.
