A Music School in English

The American Conservatory of Paris is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide the English-speaking community of Paris with a musical educational environment that fosters its students’ artistic, intellectual, and personal growth. Our faculty comes to your home in Paris for private lessons at home, or you can now take private lessons online from anywhere worldwide. Our Conservatory is the most convenient way to take music lessons.

With a Dedicated Faculty

All our faculty members are selected both for their outstanding training in some of the best schools in the world as well as their pedagogical approach. They are dedicated and passionate about teaching catering to each student’s interests, desires, and goals. Our faculty nurtures their students’ love and understanding of music and encourages individual excellence and teamwork.

and Outstanding Students

The Conservatory prepares students for optional end-of-the-year exams. These exams are held by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), the world’s most recognized music examination organization. We are proud to say that our students have passed Practical, Performance, and Theory Exams every year with a 99% success rate!

Performances Opportunities

We believe that music is made to be shared. Therefore, we offer all of our voice/instrumental students two performance opportunities in Parisian concert halls. These recitals build confidence and character and are an occasion to perform for family, friends, and peers.

How it works…

1. Fill out a sign-up form, then e-mail it to us. Include any information about previous studies, musical interests, goals, or if you are interested in taking an ABRSM exam.

2. When we receive your form and background information, we will pair you with a teacher that best fits you. We will send you an introduction e-mail confirming your information and give you the contact information of your new teacher. The teacher will confirm the time and day of your first lesson.

FREE Trial Lesson

The right connection between a student and a teacher is essential. We pair you with a faculty member who best fits your goals, but we want you to experience that for yourself. We are confident that you will find our faculty highly skilled, patient, motivating, and ready to help you achieve your dreams. Please fill out a sign-up form, then e-mail it to us requesting a trial lesson.
