Richmond Music School


The Richmond Music School has been a committed contributor to the cultural life of Richmond since it was established in 1979. Founded by a group of parents who wanted a quality music education for their children in the community, the School was formally incorporated as a Society and received its charitable status in 1980.

As a founding member of the BC Association of Community Music Schools, the Richmond Music School must adhere to a high standard of professional criteria to which commercial schools are not bound. Our focus is on the accessibility of music education to all sectors of the Richmond community with an emphasis on program excellence and community work.

The Richmond Music School offers instruction to all age groups and abilities in a broad range of styles: classical, jazz, rock and pop. Similar to the structure of music conservatories, it primarily offers private lessons and ensemble classes on a weekly basis. Most of the instruction is geared towards the completion of the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) examinations or the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) as well as preparation for local music festivals and competitions.
