With a focus on enhancing secondary school music programs, the in-school workshop sessions provide music students with learning opportunities with the help of Canada’s NAC Orchestra musicians.

Tailored for your class, these sessions can cover many topics such as clinics to improve instrumental and musicianship skills, as well as increase their understanding of the roles and responsibilities of a professional musician. 

This is an in-school workshop available to schools in the National Capital Region.
Please note - a surcharge for long distance travel to your school may apply.
