CADME beliefs and principles





Recently, CADME in conjunction with the EPCOR CENTRE for the Performing Arts hosted workshops and performances by Jon Batiste and the band Stay Human for students of all ages. Everyone who was in attendance would agree that it was a huge success! Students from Richmond Elementary School recently wrote letters of appreciation for this experience, which you can read here (A MUST READ!):

CADME was founded in 2003 with the mandate of enhancing music education programs in schools. We are pleased to continue to provide outstanding opportunities for music teachers and students. Please visit the Events section of the website for information about upcoming CADME events.

Currently, due to the hard work and generosity of many volunteers, we have funding available for music education projects for schools hoping to enhance their music programs. CADME membership is open to any individual or organization who has an interest in music education in the greater Calgary area. For information about funding, please visit the Members page.
