The instructors at Global Music Academy design lessons on musical instruments, voice, dance, and art that go deeper than ?practice makes perfect.? They surround their technical pointers with theoretical context, encouraging students to hone their guitar strums and piano chords while delving into musical history and sight-reading. For advanced classes, instructors invite celebrated musicians to inspire pupils through lectures, demonstrations, and ventriloquist acts. Their dance teachers draw from countless global influences to arrange their curriculum, covering Bollywood, hula, ballet, and tap. During art class, employees outline classic styles as adults and children sketch their original works.
The staff also appreciates the social benefits of their teachings. They head an after-school program and various summer camps to introduce youngsters to the fine arts, which often culminate in confidence-boosting performances. Options for toddlers?such as Mommy & Me dance classes and rhythmic Kindermusik sessions?tune into tactics for mental and motor development.
