NMC Education Wish List 2015

January 07, 2015


NMC’s education department is excited to offer new in-school programming, bringing musician educators and instruments into classrooms across Calgary. Our programs give students hands-on music-making experiences that explore curricular topics such as electricity and circuits or Acadian culture. We are in need of specific items to help make our programs magical. Can you help?

  • Large Rubbermaid bins with lids
  • Medium and small reusable containers with lids (tupperware is fine!)
  • Upright dolly cart, prefer folding
  • Power bars
  • Extension cords
  • Wooden clogs/shoes
  • Washboards
  • Mason/canning jars with lids
  • Mic stands and cables
  • Dynamic microphones
  • Carbon microphones
  • Rotary phones
  • Computer speakers
  • Woodwind and brass instruments (ie: trumpet, trombone, clarinet, tuba)
  • Electric and acoustic guitars
  • Electric bass
  • Guitar strings
  • Guitar picks and capos
  • Patch cords
  • Jaw harp
  • Spoons, instruments
  • Fiddles/Violins
  • Hand percussion (ie: maracas)
  • Indian instruments (ie: tablas, harmonium, sitar)

Our popular afterschool program Guitar Club is moving into a new, larger space that needs to become a rock den! We are looking for donations of piano blankets or other thick, heavy wool blankets, room dividers (ie: paneled/modular cubicle system, freestanding), area rugs, rock n’roll posters, lamps, side tables and living room chairs.

Please contact kate.schutz@nmc.ca to donate.
