Online Offerings

Term 4 Courses are here!

There are some new ones as well as some favourites. These are open to everyone far and wide, so spread the word to your music-loving friends around the globe!

 

MASTERCLASSES ARE BACK!

In addition to some of your favourites, we are pleased and excited to be offering voice and instrument-specific masterclasses.

Masterclasses will be $60 for each 6-week session.  For only $10 a week, you are able to work directly with some of the very finest instrumental and vocal teachers Calgary has to offer!  On average, individual one-hour lessons cost $75/hour, so this is a ‘Start the Car!’ kind of deal.  Prepare yourself (but don’t be afraid) you will be required to play/sing at some point, for your class. To help ensure time for each individual to engage with the instructor, we are capping the class enrollment at 12 participants.  Check the schedule below for days and times.


Recommended for singers and instrumentalists at EVERY level of expertise.
