About cadme

The Calgary Association for the Development of Music Education (CADME) has been changing lives through music since 2003. A not-for-profit organization created solely for enhancing the existing music education programs in Calgary schools, CADME is completely volunteer-based with a core group of passionate and dedicated individuals striving to support the mandate of CADME. Our hard-working volunteers make it possible to have funding for unique opportunities for the students to participate in throughout the year.

CADME is here to help Calgary and area schools. CADME works to enhance and support Calgary and area school music programs to inspire both students and teachers through workshops, concerts, masterclasses, and as an accessible community resource. Students have the opportunity to expand their creativity, self-expression, teamwork, self-esteem, as well as discover the tools necessary for academic success.
