As a company that has led the way over the past decade in offering group music programming, this fall Music & Play is renewing our focus on group music education and introducing over 20 new group music programs. With over 9,000 sf of space (including a performance studio), we are excited to welcome even more groups, and regular performances by all our students, under one roof as we once again redefine the future of music education – for all ages.

So, what about that ‘free’ thing?  Well, it has been a challenging couple years for most of us.  Of course, we want people to sign up for our programs, and we’ve made them pretty affordable too – with most of our group programs available from only $10-20/week – BUT, for the first 4 weeks this fall, we’re having a Fall Music-Free-4-All to introduce these great programs to Calgary, to help YOU find the right class fit, and to give our teachers a bit more work as they look to get their lives back to normal as well.  This means that we will be offering over 100 possible classes for students of all ages to try during this 4-week period – and yes, FOR FREE!  To find out more, read on…

The Fine Print: During the four weeks of our Fall Free-4-All, students may ONLY enroll in ONE class of each specific program. For example, you may enroll in ‘RockShop’ during week 1 of the program but then you could not for the next 3 weeks.  During this time, or even during that same week, you may try other classes/programs but for each of the Free-4-All programs you may only attend one class to allow for all interested students to have a chance to experience the classes.

However, should there still be space available 24 hours prior to a scheduled Free-4-All class, those who have attended previously are welcome to sign-up again.  And of course we hope you will love it – and regular classes begin the week of October 3!
