Featuring students of the NCM!



Our favorite rascally pirates are back at work, seeking adventure and treasure on the high seas! But a mighty storm rolls in and the pirates find themselves shipwrecked on a deserted island – or is it?
Will the King of the High “Cs” have a plan to save the day?
Through the course of their musical adventures, they discover that real treasure is something they have plenty of … friendship and family.

The Nanaimo Conservatory of Music offers individual and group lessons, ensembles, youth choirs, workshops and Master classes for all ages and skill levels, from beginner to professional. Our building is an open, inviting space in which friends, students and family members can meet to learn about music and enjoy musical activities in a non-competitive and richly creative environment. From babies in our parent-child Kindermusik classes, to the senior members of our community, all who wish to enrich their lives through music enjoy the friendly atmosphere of our home in the Old City Quarter.

The Nanaimo Conservatory of Music is also a presenter of music events in the central Vancouver Island region. Each year we offer a variety of professional music performances as an opportunity for our students and the community to experience music programming that would otherwise not be available in our area.  Our most recent annual solo piano recitals have featured pianists Angela Hewitt, Sarah Hagen, Janina Fialkowska, André Laplante, and Jane Coop.  Looking ahead to October 2018  the NCM is pleased to present renowned Canadian pianist Ian Parker in recital.
