The Voice and Acting Studio introduces children to the joys of music and performance through private lessons and group camps. During six-week performance-arts camps, children practice musical theater and perform a show for friends and families at the end of the session. Private lessons are available for piano, voice, acting, and guitar, and there are even special stage crew classes for those interested in behind-the-scenes work.
Ward-Brodt Music is Madison's online and real-life oasis of music supplies and instruction. Today's Groupon gives you four half-hour private lessons on the instrument of your choice; one-man bands are encouraged to choose their favorite instrument, including the likes of guitar, piano, and various woodwinds, and remove it from the pulley connected to their shin. Potential percussionists can study with mallet-claws for a jaunt through polyrhythms and the impossible physics of sideways-spinning drumkits, while new piano students interested in moving beyond blindfolded renditions of "Heart-N-Soul" will find ample opportunity to progress. Ward-Brodt's professional, extensive staff of over 30 music educators reads like a dream team of southern Wisconsin's performers and teachers.
