The West Island’s leading music School


Through voice lessons we increase your ranges without damaging your vocal chords.

That’s why voice lessons are very important not only to improve your voice but to prevent you from damaging your vocals. Even your regular speaking voice improves through voice lessons.


Piano lessons are ideal for young ages as they are user friendly, have minimal physical restrictions and teach the fundamentals of music in an easy to learn fashion.

So whether you are three or ninety three years of age, piano lessons are a fantastic choice.


Guitar lessons are upbeat, fun and energizing and can be taught on electric guitar, acoustic guitar, classical guitar or bass guitar.

At the Conservatory, we customize programs for guitar lessons depending on what our students’ goals are.

Words from Awesome Students

Amanda Walsh


When I was 19, I was lucky enough to take violin lessons at the West Island Conservatory of Music. I enjoyed my time there so much that I decided to add voice lessons to the mix! The Conservatory is a warm and encouraging environment in which to learn. The teachers are knowledgeable and gifted, and their support was invaluable to a young artist (as was their patience, as I was not a “natural”!)

I have since gone on to have a career as an actor and writer in film and television. I am very grateful for my time at the Conservatory. Not only did it help build my confidence for a career in the arts, it also provided discipline and an opportunity to meet like minded people who nurtured my creative dreams.

I highly recommend this place!

Donna Burgess


“I Have been a customer of the West Island Conservatory of Music for many, many years. The eldest of my children began classes 15 years ago. WICM has been an important part of the development of my children’s skills and talents. The Quality of the music teachers continues to be top notch. The learning environment and tools are very professional.

The concerts are an excellent addition to the program and truly help the students to build their confidence and become comfortable performing to a large audience. My family would not take lessons anywhere else.”

Damien Holtz


“Both my son and daughter took lessons for several years at the West Island conservatory of music and they had a great time. The teachers made such a connection with the kids that they still have a joy of making music for their own pleasure and that of their friends.

The skills taught at the conservatory have stayed with them over the years and I highly recommend WICM to any parent or person Looking to get a proper introduction to playing music. Now it’s my turn and I am currently taking piano lessons at the Conservatory.”

John McGuinness

Guitar student

Declan McGuinness started bass guitar lessons at the age of 9 with our teacher Max Pollack and has played with Conservatory bands at the Christmas and Summer concerts ever since. He gained a love of music playing with other members of his family who have also studied at the conservatory. He decided to pursue his interests in music and enrolled in the music program in Jean XXIII secondary school.

At the age of 13, in 2013 he was selected with 50 young musicians from Montreal to take part in the Montreal Jazz Festival’s Blues Camp. During an intensive week they learned a song and composed another one, both of which were played on the TD Stage in front of thousands of people on the last day of the festival. He was also interviewed about the camp on Daybreak Montreal.

Declan likes heavy metal, rock and the blues. We expect to see a lot of Declan on stage in the coming years.

“The West Island Conservatory of Music has a great range of teachers which makes it easy to find a teacher that best fits with the student’s personality and ability. As such it has always been the McGuinness family first choice for music lessons.”
