We realize that this year, we're really putting the "challenge" into the Canadian Music Class Challenge. With COVID-19 restrictions impacting music classes and programs in many provinces, we have responded by creating two ways for classes to participate, no matter what type of situation your class finds itself in.

If the challenge of creating your own virtual performance video seems daunting, have no fear! The music educators at the Calgary Arts Academy (2018 Passion Prize winners) have stepped up in a big way by creating a how-to playlist on YouTube so that you can learn how to make your very own safe and virtual performance video with your class. Check out their incredible playlist below. 

A huge thanks to the music educators and everyone at the Calgary Arts Academy for putting together those amazing videos! We look forward to your virtual performance, or any entry you submit to this year's Canadian Music Class Challenge.
