Our acclaimed faculty of performing artists all share a deep commitment to developing supportive, mentoring relationships with their students. Each year, up to 50 guest artists—some of the world’s foremost musicians—lead more than 125 master classes for GGS students.


Extraordinary facilities give our students an edge when it comes to preparing for a professional career. GGS is one of the few music schools in North America that is integrated with a major performing arts centre. Our students have access to the spectacular Koerner Hall, located in the TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning.

Student Life

A maximum enrollment of 130 students means that classes are small with a nurturing learning environment. Toronto, one of the safest major cities in the world, is also one of the most culturally diverse. Students have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to immerse themselves in Toronto’s vibrant arts scene and become acquainted with dozens of cultures.
