School program bookings for the 2016-17 school year will begin on Monday, August 29.

We have turned our galleries in to a site for gamified exploration and inquiry! In addition, our education team is also proud to provide curriculum based workshops that use music as an entry point to learning. Customize your day by booking a full day, half day, or self-guided experience.

NMC’s award-winning in-school programs bring incredible musician educators, amazing instruments, and authentic learning experiences right to your classroom. No need to book busses, fill out long permission slips, or organize parent volunteers—we make things easy for you through flat-rate programs for K-12 that meet a variety of curriculum connections.

*Attention CBE teachers: We have a Masters Agreement!

*Note: From September 1 – December 31, 2016 Bookings will only be possible for self-guided visits of Studio Bell. During this time we will be piloting our other programs to determine what works best for you and your students! We want to provide the best educational experience possible, and so want to take our time getting to know our spaces and how to use them. From January 1 – June 30, 2017 we will be offering self-guided, half day and full day experiences for your students. For more information please contact our education department at, or call our Program Administrator at 403-543-5119.

Full Day Experience

Choose the program which best suits your curriculum needs! All our programs are adaptable to the grade level of your students to engage them through hands-on, minds-on, ears-on fun.

Half Day Experience

Turn your field trip into a gamified card quest. Students are lured through the stages of Studio Bell- solving riddles, learning new skills, observing musical demonstrations, and testing their abilities.

Self-guided Experience

Come down to see the exhibitions of Studio Bell with your class! Take your time and explore with your students how you wish.

Teen Programs

Through exposure to experts and real-world applications, NMC's programs tap into teens' love for music to create engaged thinkers and ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit.


Roadcases are travelling kits that engage students through hands-on experiences using instruments and artifacts from NMC’s collection.


NMC is a resource for both generalist and music specialist teachers. Join us for teacher professional development workshops, special events, advisory committees, site visits and more!
