Beginner to advanced students welcome, age 5 and up!
The Temecula Conservatory of Music music educators take pride in both our beginner and experienced students. In fact, many of our advanced students made their first notes with us at the age of 6.
Our beginners see serious progression through either our semester group classes or one-on-one private lessons, playing every week with one of our talented instructors. Using one of the 4 live rehearsal and private lesson rooms as well as our rehearsal/recital center, the students get immersed in the actual experience of playing music with a professional, every lesson.
Coupled with our weekly Junior Orchestra Rehearsals, regular Concerts as well as Semester Orchestra Parties and jazzed up by our practicing award system which involves lots of Hershey Symphony Chocolate Bars, our beginners are inspired from the very start all while making amazing new friends.
Experienced players have no limits at Temecula Conservatory of Music. We have the very best of teachers in Riverside County to challenge them in their lessons every week. We have a top tier Youth Symphony that requires all auditionees to play at at least a Suzuki Book 5 level just to audition. Our top kids are regularly challenged with music like Vivaldi Four Seasons, Mozart Symphony No.29 and Tchaikovsky Serenade For Strings just to name a few of our most recent pieces.
Every Spring the students from our Youth Orchestra (Intermediate) and Youth Symphony(Advanced) attend Music In The Parks at one of the major amusement parks in Southern California including Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Magic Mountain and Universal Studios where they compete against other top tier youth orchestras from around the country and play all day with their friends.
Finally, every four years we take our top orchestras to the Carnegie Hall Spring Festival. Our advanced players have absolutely not limits to how high they can fly.
What parents and students are saying

Click an Instrument Below
The cello is a hero because of its register and its tenor voice. When the cello enters the concert it's like a great orator.
The king of instruments. There are eighty-eight keys on a piano and within that, an entire universe.
The human voice is the most perfect instrument of all. What's better than singing is more singing.
The guitar is a small orchestra. It is polyphonic. Every string is a different color, a different voice.

TCM is the Proud Winner of Carnegie Gold in 2019
At TCM, we offer more than just learning how to play an instrument well. We teach our students how to aim for the stars and hit them! By being accepted into the Carnegie Hall 2019 Spring Festival our students not only reached a long desired goal set back in 2014 but they also received a gold rating for their first Carnegie performance to boot! They are the only youth orchestra in the Inland Valley to accomplish this feat. And we plan on returning to Carnegie Hall in 2023 with our youth symphony.
At TCM we create many opportunities for our students to play together and in front of large audiences. We hold two large concerts a year that include all three orchestras including Temecula Junior Orchestra, Temecula Youth Orchestra and Temecula Youth Symphony. Both the Youth Symphony and Youth Orchestras wear tuxedos and black gowns and the Junior Orchestra wears black and white formal attire. This gives our students the opportunity to know what it's like to perform at a high level on stage. And it gives our younger musicians a chance to see the advanced students perform. This example of higher level performance helps them to see what is in store and possible for them!
At TCM we shoot for the stars and our students find themselves astronomically ahead of the game.
