Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Homeschool students and their families are invited to Studio Bell & National Music Centre.

Date: June 8th, 2017

Time: 9:30-2:00

Location: Studio Bell 850 4 Street SE

Target Grades: 1-3

Registration deadline: May 25

Cost: $12 per student, Adults are free, Children 3 and under are free.

Program Description:

Hearing and Sound : Get a close up look at struck, plucked, air and electric instruments. Apply the concepts of pitch, volume and timbre to the art of making music. Pick from a wide variety of instruments and make the entire hearing and sound curriculum come to life!

** Full day program includes exploring the gallery and participating in activities, Kimball organ demonstration, lunch break and a classroom lesson.

Important Notes:

- Program is geared toward Grade 1-3.

- Siblings are allowed (and will be included in the total numbers - cost is $12).

- The lunch room is used by other schools (and will be the day of) and may not be thoroughly cleaned in between, so if students have allergies we can make other arrangements for them.

- We have 5 floors of exhibitions and a lot of stairs to climb so if you have any students or chaperones with mobility issues let me know because they can certainly use elevators to access all spaces.

- We also make a lot of noise in our programs and galleries so any students with sound sensitivities should come equipped with noise cancelling headphones.
