Music Marathon

The Alberta Registered Music Teachers’ Association Calgary Branch presents the 3rd annual Music Marathon! Join us for 8 hours of continuous music at Stephen Avenue mall on Saturday, May 27, 2017 from 10:00AM to 6:00PM.

The Music Marathon is our annual fundraising event sponsored by ARMTA Calgary. The main purpose of the event is to raise money for scholarships and programs for students of ARMTA teachers and ARMTA teachers themselves. The event also showcases the benefits of taking lessons from a registered music teacher in Calgary and provides students with an opportunity to share their music with the community at large.

Teachers can book their time slots up to 45 minutes in one of the three sections of time:

10:00AM–12:00PM; 12:00PM–3:00PM; 3:00PM–6:00PM

*Please be advised that the minimum performance time is 15 minutes!

*In case a student cancels his/her performance at the last minute, it will be the teacher’s responsibility to perform.

Registration deadline: April 10, 2017
