New Publisher for Conservatory Canada

For many years, the piano, voice and theory books from Conservatory Canada have been published by Mayfair Music in Keswick, Ontario. The series has now been picked up by Novus Via Music Group, based in Stratford, Ontario. Books from Novus Via are distributed by Hal Leonard, one of the largest music wholesalers in the world. This is good news for customers who use Conservatory Canada books because The Leading Note orders from Hal Leonard very frequently and will be able to source these books a little more quickly from now on.

Unfortunately, it will take a few weeks for the changeover to be complete, so for the time being, there will be delays getting new books from Conservatory Canada. We apologize for any inconvenience but will do our best to get these books back in stock as quickly as possible.

Once the books are available again, The Leading Note will continue to keep plenty of Conservatory Canada titles in stock!
