At DaVinci Center for Creative Arts, the teachers guide all students through the same curriculum using the Whole Art Approach to give all children their own paths to musical and artistic proficiency. This multidisciplinary approach allows students to learn music at a pace that feels natural to them, while still imparting crucial technical skills such as sight-reading and music theory. Aside from music instruction, the teaching team also offers other ventures. Martial arts teaches students dynamic movements and techniques, while abacus math allows children to develop concentration in mathematics. Ballet, theater, jazz dance, and art are also available, each adhering to the same all-inclusive teaching style.

The sun glints from a golden dome, and abstract façades of modern architecture reach toward clear, blue skies dotted with clouds. Though their ears are shielded by headsets, the passengers can hear the hum of the helicopter’s blades as thsiey slice through the air. Customers also get a chance to try their hand at piloting a helicopter on one of the simulators.
Colorado Heli-Ops's team of extensively trained pilots ferries passengers on aerial tours such as these that fly over some of their state’s most historic sites and breathtaking scenery. The sleek metal hulls of the helicopters provide limousine-like luxury with plush leather seats. On-staff photographers can professionally capture tour memories with high-powered lenses affixed to digital cameras.
Colorado Heli-Ops's instructors also use their mechanical birds to train clients for private and commercial pilot’s licenses or help them brush up on more specialized skills through programs in high-altitude and mountain flight. To enable preflight preparation and let students observe the flight patterns of digital geese, staffers operate an FAA-certified Merlin Turbine simulator.
