    Kids will have the opportunity to learn to play their favorite songs and music on electric keyboards. Radio hits, movie and television themes are made so easy, that our participants will be playing them after the very first class! The club is a combination of keyboard piano lessons and a music-learning workshop, which uses a clever visual method to teach the basics of music reading and piano playing.

     

    We've developed lots of learning games and activities designed to teach kids basic music reading skills and playing techniques, in ways that are fun, engaging, and stimulating. We want our students to stay motivated and continue to want to learn to play music, whether they like Taylor SwiftMichael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Selena Gomez, Adele, Katy Perry, and whole lot more! We have all the music they want.

     

    Each participant has his/her own keyboard supplied during the class, along with headphones, and books and other materials are included.

    According to Pablo Picasso, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” Using a variety of media, (oil and chalk pastels, watercolor, pencil, charcoal and ink) children learn to see the way that artists do, and have fun with individualized, non-competitive lessons.

    Whether you have never written a line of code or have been learning how to code already, this club is for you. This split class will have two instructors, who will divide the class into a Beginner group and an Intermediate level group on the first day of the fall session. 

    BEGINNERS will be introduced to basic coding concepts, such as loops, conditionals and variables. Students will soon be creating their first games, such as a multi-level maze game or a platformer game! 

    INTERMEDIATE students with previous coding experience will be introduced to more advanced concepts, such as arrays, algorithms, game physics, and AI (artificial intelligence), and learn strong coding habits that will enable them to build larger projects in the future. Projects may include a replica of the classic Whack-a-mole game that introduces the use of lists or an Angry Birds Space game that applies multi-body gravity world to simulate flight paths in space.

    The programming tool we will use in class is Scratch (scratch.mit.edu). Why Scratch and not a typed language? It allows students to focus on learning how to code before they start learning a new programming language. We teach coding concepts first, languages second. Typed languages, such as Javascript, are introduced in our Advanced curriculum for middle schools, which we would like to offer at your school later this year
