Old meets new wonderful building
Beautiful historic building which once served as McMaster University. The Royal Conservatory is a legendary Canadian heritage site, home of the Glen Gould School and the Phil and Eli Taylor Performance Academy for Young Artists. In 1947 King George VI incorporated it's Royal Charter. With the old Mazzoleni Concert Hall and the new magnificent Koerner Hall, the Royal Conservatory offers world-class concerts. Known to many students for their comprehensive exam system with 10 performance Levels, ARCT Performers and Teachers and a corequisite Therapy program, the Royal Conservatory of Toronto has a monopoly on an exam system rivaled only by Conservatory Canada.
The school is focused mainly on traditional western classical music that's old and irrelevant, and like some have said, students aren't trained to play without a score. Come here if you just want to get exam certs and work laboriously on perfecting your classical music performance. Otherwise, if you want to learn about music creation or production, don't even think about it. Their website isn't informative, just wanted to see what teacher exams are available, they don't even have a list, found a list in the "exam fees" page though! Can't even find what's in those teacher's exams, could only see their online pedagogy course promotion which is about watching few minutes of videos from great teachers, but the rest is your job to submit assignments and respond to posts. Wasn't helpful at all, at least in my experience. And courses offered online don't even have a wide variety.
We are really sad and disappointed with the treatment that the Royal Conservatory is giving us. They removed our 4-year-old daughter from the Start Smart program because it was supposedly a system error to enroll her. We do not know yet if it is a matter of racism or if they really believe that they have the right to treat children and their families in this way.
Was spellbound the amazing performance of Anoushka Shankar at this venue.The hall is very well built, rich with premium acoustics and techs, The seating at the venue was amazing, as you can see the pic I was seated at the side balcony. The view was amazing, and the sound quality was phenomenal too, even though I was seated in side balcony the acoustics were balanced and there wasn't any drop or lag.Would love visiting this venue for more concerts.

This is one of my FAVOURITE venues in the city! I love the modern space nestled amongst the old brick of the original building. The view outside the massive windows to Philosophers Walk make you feel you are celebrating your event in the park! Can't wait to work there again soon!
