Tafelmusik launched its first educational programmes in 1995 with two open rehearsals and 150 free concert tickets for regular evening performances. Since that time, these initiatives have grown to include free afternoon concerts for student audiences, downloadable preparatory materials for teachers and parents, musician visits to schools throughout North America and a JUNO Award-winning children's recording. Every year musicians are directly involved in the creation of new education concerts, in-depth workshops, Baroque Education Day and a comprehensive baroque music education website. We also offer special tickets prices to teachers wishing to introduce their classes to Tafelmusik concerts.
Tafelmusik also supports lifelong learning and offers several adult learning opportunities including informal musician talkbacks following Wednesday night concerts, pre-concert lectures by knowledgeable experts in the community and free concerts in the community.
