Grande Prairie Regional College School of Music

At GPRC, we are passionate about your Music. We understand what great music is about. Discipline, inspiration, talent, excellence and drive are all part of the formula that leads to one becoming a successful musician.

All of these attributes begin with a solid foundation of training in the basics of musicianship, individual instrument or voice lessons, improvisation, music theory and history. GPRC also offers composition and recording technology. Exploration of the diverse world of music includes learning about influences from classical to pop culture to world music.

Our facilities are equipped with grand and upright pianos, drum sets and other percussion instruments, sound-proof modules and practice rooms, rehearsal and recital halls, a computer/music lab, state-of-the-art Digital classrooms, recording studio and more.

With a world-class recording under construction for the Fall of 2009, we are ecstatic about the significant advantage our students will have, to learn all that the world of recording has to offer. This facility will rival some of the best recording studios in Western Canada. The opportunities for you the student will be second to none.

At GPRC we have five different ensembles for the performing musician: Wind Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble, Orchestra, Electroacoustic Ensemble and Concert Choir. By rehearsing and performing alongside others, you will be inspired, challenged and motivated to explore other genres while in a positive and exciting environment. You will develop camaraderie with fellow musicians that share the same passion for performing.

Where to go next?
Most musicians are only happy when they are playing, singing, performing or at the controls in a recording studio. A career in music is a possibility with the right tools to pursue your dreams. Exploring the freedom to write, record, perform and practice while fine-tuning the skills needed is possible through mentoring from our highly skilled instructors. Our students develop the confidence needed to develop their potential in their chosen field of study. We have transfer agreements with other colleges and universities in Canada. Many of our students transfer into their 3rd year of study at the University of Alberta and the University of Lethbridge.
