The couple first met in 1981. Guy recalled, "We met at the conservatory. I came to Sault Ste. Marie on a grant with the string quartet, which was in residence [there]. Susan was teaching piano at that time. I relocated from Montreal and we were married in 1983. In 1986 I took over as director of the Conservatory. Susan is currently the coordinator of music for the young children's program," Guy said.
"We have quite a large rental program, mostly for stringed instruments, brass, and woodwind. Although most of the classes run from September through June, we do have a junior music camp, which runs for one week, from July 23 to 27, for ages six to 10," Guy said. "Also, the Conservatory offers the largest concert series in the Sault. We've sold 2,700 tickets already this year. We bring in some of the finest touring artists and ensembles. This year they're all Canadian. For one of those concerts, we put together a professional chamber orchestra."
There have been many changes over the years. "From that time period we've grown from about 200 students to nearly 1,000 students, mainly through a relocation of a core of professional teachers that we brought to the Sault from across Canada; many excellent performers and proficient teachers relocated to the Sault 30 in all."
Susan said, "I think we have the best job in the whole world, because we introduce children as young as three years old to music. I have some students who are now in university, and they contact us and keep us abreast of what's going on. They're making music their life's work. Several of our students are professional musicians now. We have the opportunity to touch so many young lives, and you never know who will get inspired; you don't know what they're going to do. We get artists who perform all around the world so we always have interesting times. We had one quartet, Reebok Answer 15

"More than 100 children are involved in the children's program every year. More than 2,000 children have already been trained in that program. After going through this program they're ready to start various instruments," Guy said. "We collaborate with Algoma University College as our teachers also provide instruction at AUC. It's possible to take classes for university credit, or simply through the conservatory". There are classes "for adult students as well," Guy said.

The Kiwanis Festival "is the community's largest festival, with nearly 700 performances. We bring in professional adjudicators from across Canada who evaluate the students and work with them, and give them a written evaluation. Students compete for 170 different scholarships.

Marie, the major contributor, do tremendous work raising funds that make the festival possible. This past year was the 70th festival," Guy said.
