About Larsen Music School
The Larsen School of Music is one half of the Larsen enterprise, a Victoria owned establishment. The retail store and school were founded in 1998 and the school has been offering students professional instruction in a wide range of musical styles including Classical, Jazz, Pop, and Rock. As an avid supporter of the arts, Larsen Music is fully committed to fostering the growth of healthy communities by offering a variety of creative opportunities.
At Larsen Music, we believe that music should be accessible to all, and that every student, regardless of age or musical background, can and should benefit from the enormous positive impact music can have on our lives. That's why at Larsen School of Music, you'll find a vibrant team of highly professional teachers who will accommodate all ages, learning styles and musical aspirations, providing tailored lessons for each individual student. This flexible approach allows you to explore musical interests and achieve your full musical potential in a safe and supportive environment.
The qualitfications of our faculty range from ARCT or equivalent to a Masters degree. If you are interested in examinations from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Conservatory Canada or another institution, we have instructors that are capable of guiding you in most instruments. Many of our instructors are established professional musicians and perform regularly. Each of our instructors have had experience with teaching children and adults and more importantly, have demonstrated their ability to effectively comminucate with students and/or parents and possess motivational skills to guide students to their full potential.
