sing – imagine – play – compose – act – create – dance – build – perform – dream – grow
Locally owned and owner-managed, Music and Play offers classes for all ages – and in all areas of the performing arts including: Group and Private Music Lessons, Musical Theatre and Theatre classes and Dance for Theatre classes for all ages. We also have our Imagine performance stream program – where students (of all ages) may focus on putting their skills to practice…on the stage.
The School occupies over 3,700 square feet in our home studios in the Aspen Landing Shopping Centre – and we also offer classes in other communities around the city. With 10 studio spaces – and an annual student body of over 800 – every day at Music and Play is filled with the joy of arts education for students from 6 months to 60+ years of age.
At Music and Play it’s not simply about getting numbers through the door – the company has been built on a strong foundation of excellence and education first. This foundation is supported by company owners and a faculty who themselves have extensive backgrounds in education and the performing arts. Our stringent strandards actually pose one of the greatest challenges for the Company, as not every teacher is right for Music and Play – as much as we might need them to meet our ever growing student requests.
As artists ourselves, we know the joys and struggles in pursuing your dreams – and this is why we make sure that our students (as people – not as billable class hours) come first. This means providing a nurturing, high quality learning environment where they may all achieve.
At Music and Play we want our students to go beyond the notes, the words and the steps and into the world of creativity and the arts! We want to ensure that whenever our students decide to discontinue their arts education, that they take with them a foundation of knowledge that will continue to serve them for their lifetime.
It can be pretty exhausting running studios like this, but it’s all worth it when we see the growth and joy our students get from being a part of something they love! Thank you for all your support over these past seven years – we look forward to the next seven as we continue to grow together and change the way performing arts education is taught in Calgary.
