Playful Pianist - Intermediate

Group piano lessons are designed to build and enhance students’ comprehensive skills, coordination, and expression. Studies have shown that exposing young children to classical music can increase their overall mental health and help them in different areas of their education. We make this experience fun by creating a social, comfortable, non-judgmental atmosphere that encourages progress. Each child will use an instrument provided by us. Children will begin to learn how to: read music, compose (write music), sing the Solfege scale (do, re, mi, …) and learn their corresponding hand signals, play a scale, and memorize two pieces of music for the final performance. Students develop posture, poise, auditory memory, fine and gross motor skills, and music appreciation. A performance will be given at the end of the session.

Appropriate for Ages: Kindergarten
Tuition: $205.00

Science Explorers

Each week, students will explore a different science theme and participate in fun, related experiments and projects. We will learn about earth science, physics, and chemistry. Students will follow the scientific method of prediction, experimentation, observation, and drawing a conclusion. Each theme is introduced through a story, song, or game. Science experiments will include:

  • making your own slime, lava lamp, or volcano;

  • learning about the difference between wet ice and dry ice;

  • creating clouds, rain, or snow as students discover how to recognize weather patterns;

  • mixing up your own spa products, including soaps, bath salts, and sugar scrubs.

STEAM Explorations

This class is a great introduction to STEAM as we explore a different STEAM subject each week. We begin with "S" for science by doing fun hands-on chemistry and earth science experiments where the students will follow the scientific method of prediction, experimentation, observation, and drawing conclusions. For "T" and "E", we will learn about technology and engineering, with an introduction to coding, and students will create their first animation. Students are introduced to robotics and will build their first robot and program it for movement and sound. We then learn about and build bridges. We end the engineering section by creating our own electric circuits. Students’ creativity is sparked in each session with the addition of the "A" component which stands for art, as art and design are integrated in our weekly projects. Finally, we will have fun with "M" for math by participating in a variety of math and strategy games.
