The Conservatoire de musique de Saint-Eustache is a private school of music instruction in Saint-Eustache, an off-island suburb of Montreal, in western Quebec, Canada, on the north shore of the Rivière des Mille-Îles. It offers instruction in music with very high standards, strictly following the syllabus and examination requirements of the "École de musique Vincent-d'Indy." It is the affiliation that the Director has with the École Vincent-d'Indy that allows students to take the music examinations administered by the Quebec provincial Ministry of Education. [1]

The teaching offered permits many of their students the opportunity to enter various music performance contests. Some notable examples of competitions include the Inter-student competition of the École de musique Vincent-d'Indy, the Festival des jeunes musiciens des Laurentides and the Montreal Classical Music Festival (or, le Festival de musique classique de Montréal, in French).
