With a focus on enhancing secondary school music programs, the Virtual 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.
