The Victoria Conservatory of Music (VCM) is a music school in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.[1] There is a garden tour organised by VCM each year.[2] Louise Rose regularly leads workshops at VCM.[3] VCM partnered with the University of Victoria to develop a Canadian music therapy program for people with disabilities.[4] VCM was once located at Craigdarroch Castle,[5] and also spent time in a building on the grounds of St. Ann's Academy,[6] but is now located at 900 Johnson Street, a building previously used as a church by the United Church of Canada.[7] Cambodian musician Hy Chanthavouth studied at VCM.[8] Walter Prossnitz is the piano department head at VCM.[9] Stephen Green is VCM's dean.[10]
