PATM’s combination of intensive classical training and hands-on practical experience will prepare you for the next step in your music career.
You’ll receive a one-hour private lesson each week on your major instrument PLUS a half-hour lesson weekly on a secondary (minor) instrument. Choose from majors and minors in brass, classical guitar, piano, percussion, strings, voice, or woodwinds. Take that training from studio to stage with frequent performance opportunities both as a soloist and in our many ensembles and bands.
To ensure you’re prepared to take on the industry, PATM offers courses like The Business of Music and Pedagogy. The Business of Music course will teach you how to market, promote, and manage yourself and other musicians. In the Pedagogy course, you’ll learn how to teach music and put your skills into practice teaching your own students in third year. PATM is one of the few college music programs in Ontario that includes courses in music pedagogy.
