Designed by Julie Mongeon-Ferré and written by Julie Mongeon-Ferré and Beryl Peters, the bilingual Discover Learning Guide is an exciting way for all audience members from Kindergarten to Grade 12 and beyond, to prepare for and engage with the inspiring music and musicians featured in the May 18, 2016 Manitoba Chamber Orchestra matinee concert. The Discover Learning Guide will help educators and learners to connect with the Manitoba Music K-12 curriculum framework through a variety of interactive experiences that explore the life and music of Janes ehnes and Andrew Armstrong and Handel and Beethoven. The Discover Learning Guide also suggests creative music possibilities for all learners inspired by the music of Vivaldi, and provides supporting material about the recorder family and innovative ways to interact with and respond to the music and musicians of this concert.

The Discover Learning Guide is available in three formats:

  • electronic book ibook (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Mac)
  • online version (viewable with internet connection on most devices and browsers)
