Portland Conservatory of Music

Changing Lives One Note at a Time
Celebrating our 25th anniversary enhancing the quality of life through music education for all ages, abilities and financial levels.

COVID-19 and PCM

Read our COVID-19 Guidelines for Families and how to apply for financial assistance if you’ve experience loss of income due to the coronavirus pandemic. Classes are both online and in-person this fall!


Online Concerts

PCM is pleased to share performances by our students and faculty as part of our pandemic response.

Beginning November 5 we will resume our Noonday Concert Series. New concerts will be posted on the first and third Thursdays of each month through May 6.

We have changed this year’s format. Each video will be short, 3-5 minutes, and our faculty will talk about and demonstrate their instruments. They will also share particular aspects about the piece/s they will perform. We hope you enjoy them.

Stay tuned!
