The Case For Having Fun
If you practice,
you get better.
If you get better,
you play with better players.
If you play with better players,
you play better music.
If you play better music,
you have more FUN.
If you have more fun,
you want to practice more.
And...if you practice more,
You Get Better!
What keeps a student practicing? It must be a fun experience. And as the previous saying puts it, if a student is having fun they want to practice more. At TCM we like to build little Fun Fires under our students to inspire them to practice their instruments.
1. Private Lessons with a Qualified Professional
Students who have weekly one-on-one instruction from one of our qualified instructors have the tools to improve every week.
Our awards systems inspire in so many ways. With giant chocolate bars, gold pins and colorful wristbands each student can have fun with each stop of the ladder as they improve from one award to another.
When a student has the opportunity to perform as a soloist in one of our semi-annual recitals or with a group in one of our orchestras or string quartets they feel a sense of accomplishment that affects them in all areas of their life giving them more confidence and thus helping them to have more fun in life.
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 Chamber Orchestra that requires all auditionees to play at at least a Suzuki Book 5 level just to audition. Our top kids are regularly challenged with advanced level music from composers such as Vivaldi, Mozart, Corelli, Brahms, Beethoven and Bach.
Every Spring the students from our Youth Orchestra (Intermediate) and Chamber Orchestra(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.
Every two years our Chamber Orchestra travels to Carnagie Hall in New York or somewhere international. In 2024 they will be traveling to Austria and the Czech Republic where they will tour and perform at incredible venues.

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!
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 our Junior Orchestra, Youth Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra. Both the Chamber Orchestra and Youth Orchestra 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, just like the professionals. 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.
