Ridley College employs highly qualified private music teachers for instruments and voice. Our students may select an instrument or voice to study privately on campus.

Private music instruction is offered at Ridley College in many musical disciplines, from the beginner level through the Associate Diploma of the Royal Conservatory of Music (Toronto).

Students signed up for term one lessons before August 1st will receive a free 30-minute introductory lesson with their teacher between September 16th and September 20th. Students who register after August 1st will begin lessons during the week of September 23rd.

Lessons take place during the school day at a fixed weekly time that suits the student, family and teacher. Students must provide their own instruments for lessons. Piano students must have access to a piano or keyboard for practice at home.

Additional Information

Lessons are prepaid per term. Students are registered automatically for the next term of lessons unless the parent notifies the private music lesson coordinator before the new term starts. 

Missed Lessons

The final two weeks in each term are reserved for students who qualify for a lesson credit.*  Any lesson missed without 24 hours' notice is forfeited, except for last-minute illness or family emergency. Notice for any missed lesson must be given by the parent via email.

Provided that proper notice is given, the student will have the following options:

  1. They may provide a video recording of their lesson material at or before their weekly lesson time to which the teacher will provide virtual feedback.
  2. The teacher may offer an alternative in-person or online lesson time for that week (subject to the teacher’s availability).

* One lesson credit is offered per term if a student cannot take advantage of the two above options.


If a student wishes to withdraw from lessons, the parent should indicate this directly to the private teacher and music lesson coordinator. No remaining lessons will be refunded during the term's final three weeks.
