Individual Music Lesson Program

St. Mary’s Academy is pleased to continue our partnership program with the Manitoba Conservatory of Music & Arts (MCMA) for the 2023-2024 school year. This partnership delivers individual music lessons on campus for SMA students. By hosting MCMA instructors in our school, we are able to offer the highest standard of music lessons combined with convenience for students to attend music lessons in our building.
