Classes are categorized by the following divisions:

  • Lower Academy : classes for students in grades 3-6.
  • Upper Academy : classes for students in grades 7-12.

However, home school classes can be available to students outside these ranges based on your assessment of his or her readiness and skill aptitude for a class.

Ever been inspired by acapella projects such as Pentatonix, Street Corner Symphony, Eric Whitacre, or other voice-based groups? This course is designed to give students an opportunity take their singing to the next level by immersing themselves in a heavily-harmony-based vocal ensemble. The course’s purpose is to provide coaching, direction, and organization to students who look to improve their own musical abilities and to enjoy singing music with others.

Intro to Music Theory
$70 p/mo
Intro to Music Theory Image

This course is designed to instruct students on introductory music theory, specifically, the basics of tonal harmony and will include (though not limited to) the following:

– Musical Notation
– Rhythm and Melody
– Scales
– Key Signatures
– Intervals / Chords
– Introduction to ear training
– Basic Composition (if time allows)

All music theory will be taught with the perspective of practical application in musical settings. The majority of the work will be tailored to most benefit aspiring pianists and vocalists.

Private Music Lessons
$100-$240 p/mo based on instrument and private or shared lesson.
Private Music Lessons Image

As is implied from the course title, these lessons are designed to be customized to best meet the student’s music needs and level. Regarding Lesson Length, Private Lessons are 30 minutes long with shared lessons at 40 minutes. Due to period length, I will be limited to teaching two lessons per period.
Topics to Be Covered:

  1. Guitar: For beginners, these lessons will include learning the basic material that is required for most genres and styles that involve guitar. This will include strumming, picking, fingerpicking, chord voicings, basic guitar theory, and more. For intermediate to advanced guitarists, the topics may include tone production, ear-training, improvisations, chord theory, transcriptions, guitar solo analysis, etc. All guitar lessons will be taught under the umbrella of either a nylon-string, steel-string, or electric guitar. As such, lesson topics will vary based on your chosen instrument.
  2. Piano: For piano, I use a wonderful curriculum known as Simply Music. Simply Music is a non-traditional playing-based approach to leaning to play the piano. Simply Music simply delays the music-reading process to help jumpstart one’s musicianship by introducing them to improvising, composing, and multiple styles such as Blues, Contemporary, Classical, and Accompaniment styles. For a more intermediate student and after a solid repertoire is developed, concepts such as arranging, reading, specialized styling, and jazz are introduced.
  3. Violin: Regarding violin, I use two approachs: Suzuki and Essential Elements. These two method books differ in emphasis, so I chose to use both round out the student’s music education. Beginner violinists will learn basic concepts such as proper bow hold, stance, fretboard knowledge, left hand technique, and expressive gestures (phrasing, dynamics, and vibrato).

Theatre Arts
$70 p/mo
Theatre Arts Image

Theatre encompasses multiple forms of art and design: writing, painting, dance, music, sewing, construction, lights, sound, hair, make-up, and, oh yes, acting! It is truly a collaborative art and much more than what happens “on stage.” This class will work on creative, engaging, challenging, and fun drama projects that will immerse students into the collaborative art of theatre. The projects can easily accommodate a variety of skill levels, from beginner to the more experienced student. Projects will include: scene work, acting techniques, story & character analysis, production & publicity, design, and technical elements such as lighting, sound, sets, and costumes.

Worship Dance
$70 p/mo
Worship Dance Image

Course Description:

This course is designed to use dance as an expression of worship, keeping the focus on giving glory back to God through the gift and joy of dance. We will begin and end each class in prayer, and spend a few minutes reading and discussing Scripture pertaining to dance and music. The remainder of the class time will be spent on working on dance skills and creating choreography and pieces to be performed at PULSE nights. The styles of dance that could be drawn from will be modern/lyrical, ballet, jazz, hip-hop, and if time and space allow, I may incorporate tap.

Class Expectations:

I expect every student to practice outside of class a minimum of at least 5 days a week, 15 minutes each time. I’d also like students to be available for PULSE nights, which are designed for classes to present material, and any rehearsals necessary in preparation for these events. I also expect students to be respectful to all present and to care for the space we are using.
