The NSM Advantage

The Power of Music

Music is so much more than simply learning to play an instrument. It also has the power to aid in the development of intellect, ability to focus, stress relief, self confidence, emotional recognition within speech, and of course self fulfillment.

Our Teachers

With the largest teaching staff in Eastern Ontario we are able to ensure the perfect fit for any skill level or personality type.

Our Facilities

We have over 24 teaching rooms including a professional recording studio and an in-house performance venue. Take a virtual tour of our learning environment!


We work with partners such as all three Ottawa school boards and Carleton University to bring musical education to students all over Ottawa. Find out more about our partners!



For both hobbyist students and those looking to pursue schooling or a career in music, learning through lessons is only part of the process. We offer a variety of performance opportunities for our students to showcase their talent.


Our Band Program is designed to provide students with a community of like-minded musicians looking to take the next step and join a band.


Get your kids out of the house and into the arts! The Nepean School of Music offers a creative arts day camp program for children ages 6 -12 during march break and the summer holidays.
