New Partnership: University School

As of October 2017, HCPP is now partnered with University School of the Calgary Board of Education (CBE)!

We are excited to start lessons at Connaught School and University School, but we are still looking for more volunteer teachers! This is a great opportunity to give back towards a meaningful cause and gain hours for your co-curricular record (CCR). This will be many of the students’ first encounter with music and it is truly a special experience for them. If you are interested or know someone else who might be interested, please email us back as soon as possible so that we can set up a meeting.

We are looking for more teachers on these days/times:

Connaught School (1121 12 Ave SW)
Monday (2:30-3:00 and/or 3:00-3:30)
Tuesday (2:30-3:00 and/or 3:00-3:30)
Wednesday (2:30-3:00 and/or 3:00-3:30)
Thursday (2:30-3:00 and/or 3:00-3:30)

Tuesday (3:40-4:10 and/or 4:10-4:40)
Wednesday (3:40-4:10 and/or 4:10-4:40)

Please do not hesitate to contact us back if you have any questions or concerns.

Thanks and we hope to hear back from you soon!
