The Algoma Conservatory of Music is a non-profit music school affiliated with Algoma University. Established in 1971. Sault Ste. Marie has become home to one of the largest and finest music schools in Ontario. Many of our faculty have relocated to Sault Ste. Marie from across Canada to teach at the Conservatory and through Algoma University's Music Department, bringing their performance and teaching experience to hundreds of students every year.

The Algoma Conservatory of Music and Algoma University Music Department are housed in a striking historic 1901 stone building. This was the corporate headquarters of the industrialist Francis H. Clergue and later the office building of St. Mary's Paper. The former site of the paper corporation is now redeveloping into a cultural hub, including the Algoma Conservatory, The Machine Shop - a large special event venue next to the Conservatory and other heritage buildings. The development is known as Mill Square and is expanding Sault Ste. Marie's downtown and waterfront.

A full range of group music classes are offered for young children, as well as private instrumental and vocal lessons for all ages with outstanding teachers. In addition there are several levels of youth orchestras, group violin & cello classes, youth choirs and guitar ensembles; as well as music theory and history classes to meet the requirements for Royal Conservatory of Music examinations. We also host many student concerts and special events including: Algoma Conservatory Concerts - featuring some of the finest Canadian and international touring ensembles and soloists.

Other community services at the Conservatory include the Sault Ste. Marie Music Festival; an instrument rental program and sales of top quality Yamaha pianos at excellent prices.

The Conservatory's extensive educational programs and concert series are maintained through support of Canadian Heritage, the Ontario Arts Council, the City of Sault Ste. Marie and many of our community's businesses and individuals.
