What We Offer
Lessons are designed to help students ages 7+, develop the art and technique of singing. They will explore their vocal range, learn how to strengthen their voice and learn how to use diaphragmatic breath-control. Foundational technique will be established, secured and applied to repertoire. Lessons are beneficial for both beginner and more advanced students. Students will be given tools to ensure lifelong healthy singing.
Learn everything you need to know about how to play your guitar from beginner to intermediate levels. This instrument brings people together as a group and connects them through music and instantly elevates a mood! Private individual lessons available. 30 minutes a week. $125/mo.
OUR FRENCH & SPANISH PROGRAMS
~BROADEN YOUR HORIZONS!
""HOLA!" Parlez-vous Français?" If not, venture out with us to learn the beautiful French or Spanish languages. As both are latin-based languages and two of the most spoken languages globally, they are particularly enriching avenues for you or your child to be further exposed to the wider world. Their latin roots give an enhanced command and understanding of the English language while fluency provides a practical, increased accessibility to a vast array of historical literature, culture, and peoples of the broader western world.
We offer classes for all ages in a fun and relaxed atmosphere that allows for plentiful conversation and real-life application of the vocabulary and concepts covered. Our method is a semi-immersion style that incorporate fun songs, familiar stories, and everyday tasks and activities that make the material useful and relevant. We succeed only when you discover that you really can express yourself easily and clearly in your chosen language!
Furthermore, students who study with us for 2 or more years are invited to put their skills to the test and travel to France , Quebec, or Spain with us on wonderfully exciting (and surprisingly economical ) class trips that we take to every other year!
