The Pink House's stimulating Kindermusik lessons help pint-sized Puccinis tap into their innate musicality while strengthening intellectual, emotional, and social development. Classes are available for youngsters aged 0–6, with the exception of piano lessons, which are also open to adults. Five options are available:
Azalea City Center for the Arts nurtures the next generation of entertainers with group classes, one-on-one lessons, and afterschool activities. Creative kids can hone their talents while learning new steps in the dance program or while pursuing the perfect shot in the photography program. In addition to dance and photography, the center also offers art, drama, music, and voice classes and hosts parties that include games, costumes, skits, and picture opportunities.
Winners of the 2010 Southern Professional Hockey League President’s Cup, the Huntsville Havoc face a new season of fast-paced puck-handling and loyally rowdy fans. With a reputation for playing inevitably exciting hockey, center Glenn Detulleo, goalie Dan McWhinney, and the rest of the team use their collective talent to propel the game, rather than resorting to marathon body checks or diabolical mind games. Mezzanine seats give fans a comprehensive view of every smoke-trailed slap shot, pulchritudinous power play, and wild zamboni stampede. Bring a lifelong hockey fan or your second head along for a night of intense fun as you watch the Havoc express-mail presents to the nets of the Surge, Riverhawks, or Ice Bears.
Musicology School of Music offers lessons in dozens of instruments, from guitar to mandolin and singing to trombone. Instructors hold classes in 12 private teaching studios, each built with sound-proofing materials to enhance privacy and concentration. Of course, part of a full musical education is learning to play with others, so the music experts also hold larger gatherings in their group classroom and recital hall.
They focus on multiple aspects of the musical process, providing amps, full drum kits with pads, and other accompaniment instruments. They also teach students the art of recording music, incorporating various types of music-mixing and playing software throughout their program.
Since 1964, Guitar Center has paired musicians with guitars, keyboards, drums, Pro Audio gear, and necessary accessories, including DJ and recording equipment to capture newly made melodies. An iPad music-stand adaptor ($39.99) connects an iPad to a music stand, allowing musicians to access online programs and music apps on-stage, or to publicly dedicate a song to their online Scrabble partner. A clip-on tuner ($29.99) keeps notes pitch-perfect, and Guitar Center’s array of sheet music produces a wider variety of sounds than singing from a thesaurus, with options that include the C-surfing The Real Blues Book ($31.49). Stitch tighter harmonies by threading notes onto Slinky guitar strings ($3.79), or use the value of today's Groupon toward a larger purchase, such as the Epiphone Les Paul Special II guitar ($169–$179.99). Guitar Center rounds out its collection of gear with Pro Audio and DJ equipment, keyboards, and drums, allowing every band member or solo cymbal player to stock up on their chosen form of expression.
