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.

A portion of mountain biking, a dose of trail running, a pinch of trekking, and several gallons of watersports. This is Rev3 Adventure's race director's recipe for creating their adventure runs?and the training regimens to prepare for them?throughout the year. The races can be intense, as participants might switch between mountain biking and canoeing on any given day, but athletes can choose an adventure that fits their stamina levels, participating in events that last a few hours or a few days. For example, the annual Shenandoah Epic Adventure Race incorporates paddling, biking, trekking, and navigating, and competitors can opt to reach all the mandatory checkpoints in 13 hours or hit the additional optional checkpoints in 26 hours, the average number of hours a cat sleeps every day.
Still, the race director says that the organizers and volunteers try to keep their events family-friendly. "We wanted to help families become active in the outdoors," says the race director, "and at the same time, create fun and exciting challenges that will push competitors to their personal limits in a fun and safe environment."
The highly trained technicians at Jiffy Lube tend to about 24 million customers each year with services such as the Signature Service Oil Change package, which promotes the longevity of each vehicle. Staffers acknowledge that oil plays a crucial role in maximizing the lifespan of each car?it cools the motor and prevents moving parts from deteriorating. More than 20,000 technicians who have completed an extensive training program certified by the National Institute Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) nurse vehicles at Jiffy Lube.
In addition to performing oil changes, Jiffy Lube's savants perform air-filtration, electricity, and windshield services, among others. The technicians' quality pledge includes a commitment to transparency, which stipulates that they will inform car owners of any necessary services, only complete a service after it has been approved, and refuse to replace windshields with saran wrap.
