“Having the opportunity to study music has shown to have intellectual and developmental benefits to your children that no other activity provides.”
— Paul Dornian, President + CEO, Calgary Philharmonic
Students learn rhythms and how to play in unison by performing on hardware store buckets. This teaches students teamwork, focus, and discipline.
During the 2020-2021 season, PhilKids students continue their musical studies virtually using body percussion and audiation, all while focusing on their social development.
Students learn everything from the names of the instruments to the notes on a staff through traditional and game-based learning with the Calgary Philharmonic musician Heather Wootton.
