Turning Pointe Music & Dance is like a garden for artistic talents. Their instructors start cultivating dance students when they're just 3 years old, and as they progress, the fledgling dancers move on to more and more advanced techniques. The curriculum includes a four-level pre-professional program with technique classes that cover the finer points required of a well-rounded dancer. Turning Pointe Music & Dance's experts also teach music, and they work with adults during dance and fitness classes, such as Pilates.

Offering classes for adults and kids seven and up, the Academy of Fine Arts is a non-profit organization that encourages an appreciation of music with a heartfelt love of the instrument. Putting drumsticks in empty hands, flutes to pursed lips, and a spring to the voice's step are great ways to foster creativity and self-expression, increase spatial intelligence, and spicy up the dull world of crickets. Classes are available for a slew of instruments including guitar, piano, violin, voice, and many woodwinds and brass. Those distrustful of shredding on an instrument they didn't have a hand in making will be interested in the Build a Guitar lessons.

Instructors teach children and adults how to strum, pluck, and tap music out of their instruments during private and group lessons. In students' homes or at the school, they learn to juice notes from guitars, pianos, violins, banjos, mandolins, or their own vocal chords. Students needn't own their own instruments—they can rent one from the school if they promise to feed it regularly and prune the sheet music it sprouts. All skill levels are welcome, and the school also has a program for students with special needs. To ensure teachers are ready to start lessons, the school conducts thorough background checks and gives out references upon request.
