Not many people discover their life's calling by the age of 12, but guitar teacher James Gabriano did. Now well-versed in multiple styles of music, he started with classical-guitar lessons as a child evolved into serious music study at the University of North Texas, where he honed his chops in the classical- and jazz-guitar curriculums. James's career would eventually lead him to play for music greats such as Aretha Franklin and Kenny G and to share his talent and love of music with local children. During guitar lessons, he teaches students how to develop their skills and how to make their guitars sing, from the first chord to the last stage smash.
The instructors at Promethean Studios know that every musician is different, and they tailor their teaching techniques to both beginners and lifelong learners of music. The teachers each boast at least 15 years of experience and hundreds of lessons taught, and typically get students making music or summoning the bird species of their choice in two to six months. Most music students start by learning how to play songs they choose, a tactic that introduces the fundamentals of rhythm, instrument technique, and music theory under the cover of fun.

Inspired by New York City's The Actors Studio, thespians Erica and Shane Peterman established The Acting Studio as a place for youngsters and adults with acting aspirations to focus on their craft. Along with experienced dancer Kellie Carroll, the Petermans train students on musical-theater fundamentals in classes that range from jazz dance to private voice lessons. The advanced Triple Threat program places pupils intending to pursue a performing-arts career under the tutelage of industry pros who prep them for performances. Kids more interested in dabbling, meanwhile, can meet industry bigwigs at workshops, and several full-scale productions each year grant children the chance to act alongside their peers and improvise dance numbers.
