An affiliate of the Mayron Cole Music Conservatory, the Academic Music School teaches students to master the notes and scores of musical masterpieces with a variety of instruments and music styles. Budding Beethovens of any age or shoe size can construct symphonic sound waves on a piano, guitar, keyboard, trumpet, trombone, violin, cello, string bass, flute, clarinet, saxophone, drums, or their surgically inserted voice. Students can choose to focus on an array of music styles, such as classical, pop, Broadway, jazz, and more. The private lessons are conducted by university-trained instructors that are matched with neophyte music makers based on personality and instrument choice. With the exception of a piano and antique 100-foot pipe organ, all instruments must be supplied by students.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
The lively group of arts-and-crafts instructors at Lets Art Canada encourages students of all ages to express themselves through the visual arts with unabashed confidence and a focus on having fun. Their varied schedule of two-hour painting, drawing, and sculpting classes invites aspiring Michelangelos to act as the architects of their very own masterpieces using prismatic markers, paints, and lumps of clay. Lets Art Canada also hosts children's camps and birthday parties so kids can channel excess energy into making art instead of twirling in circles or digesting detention slips.
Joseph David captures countenances utilizing an artistic portraiture style honed during 10 years of experience photographing for national ad campaigns, newspapers, and magazines. Up to five muses can model in the studio, and on-location shoots can be accommodated for an additional fee. The photographer creates a fun and exciting studio atmosphere for his subjects, who can bring their own colourful props, music, or bottle of wine to set the mood and fill in for missing relatives. Decorate dwellings with an 11”x14” print, which undergoes basic retouching to remove blemishes, scratches, and reduction of darkness around the eyes. Low-resolution replicas of all the session's clicks gather themselves on a collectable DVD and are perfect for emailing correctly proportioned portraits to family without causing concern over couch-size teeth.
Heaven Scent is a blend of an alternative-medicine clinic, the Canadian Institute of Alternative Medicine, a full-service spa, and a new-age store providing supplies to both licensed holistic-health professionals and health-conscious customers. Its founder, Christine Richards, established Heaven Scent because she wanted to open a place where the local community could go for all its alternative-medicine needs, eliminating the need for people to fly to China every time they sneezed.
With the belief that pharmaceutical medicine isn’t the only path to vitality and fitness, Heaven Scent’s holistic health experts practice more than 50 alternative-medicine treatments that bolster the body without invasive procedures. Chinese acupuncture and zen stone massages facilitate the body’s natural healing processes, and nutritional counselling equips clients with the know-how to fuel their bio-motors with healthy foods instead of deep-fried candy canes. Powerful magnets, aromatics, detoxes, and reiki massages aid staff members in levelling out their clients’ internal systems.
