Custom Workshops & Clinics brochure







"We had been looking for a way to introduce Grade 8 students to Taiko drumming to help bring their Japan unit to life. Going to Mount Royal University was the right choice. The facility, technology and number of drums made for an outstanding experience for kids... We look forward to offering this most interesting, hands on experience for our students each year.— L. Williams, Willow Park School

"Workshops so close to home in fantastic facilities with fantastic faculty fill a long time gap in Calgary... it will be an important piece of my yearly educational plan from now on." — C. Herard, Bishop Carroll High School

"It was very easy to book a Jazz clinic... and know that my students would be working with quality musicians. I asked for a date and the times I needed along with the number of clinicians... they took care of the rest." — W. Irwin, Elboya School

"MRC clinics have been an extremely valuable tool for the students... With just one quick e-mail, you can have your day scheduled to meet all your needs. We will definitely be returning." — P. Rounding, Fairview School
