These comprehensive lessons on classical, electric, or acoustic guitars are offered once a week with a live instructor or online and guarantee that students will be playing their favorite music within six months of training.

With a name taken from the Arabic word for "rhythm," Studio Iqaat is driven by a single goal: introducing others to the musical drum culture of North Africa and the Middle East. On the studio's stage, a team of adept instructors lead small groups in classes for traditional drums such as the doumbek, riqq, or tar. Classes may focus on a range of genres?such as Turkish traditional or Arabic pop?but all progress from basic rhythms to more advanced techniques, such as drumming only with the power of your mind. In each class, a regimen of exercises prepares students to accompany dancers. On the other side of the coin, a dance floor welcomes students to practice moving to those rhythms in belly-dancing classes. Studio Iqaat's operations aren't limited to classes, however; the center also operates as a performance and recital space, provides instrument rentals, and serves as a venue for parties and photo shoots.

Occupying the last surviving building of the original Los Angeles Chinatown, the Chinese American Museum preserves the history and legacy of the city's Chinese American community. Over the past 10 years, it has fostered an environment where current and future generations can learn about this group's contributions to the area's diverse heritage. The museum's current collection includes more than 7,500 culturally relevant artifacts?many donated by local community members?including antique furniture, photographs, traditional wedding gowns, and artwork. Special exhibitions complement this collection, exploring themes ranging from the immigrant experience to the greater implications of the rise of Sriracha and Tapatio hot sauces in LA and beyond. With an emphasis on the community's impact on Los Angeles culture in particular, the Chinese American Museum embraces the group's past while also emphasizing its present-day role within Southern California.

Since its inception in 1979, The Museum of Contemporary Art has devoted itself to post-1940 artwork, a focus that sets it apart from all other Los Angeles museums. Its permanent collection harbors more than 5,000 art objects, encompassing media from video installations and documentary photography to pop art. Works from renowned artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Diane Arbus share gallery space with pieces from up-and-coming artists across the museum?s three facilities.

To complement its permanent collection, the museum hosts rotating temporary exhibits, such as the current Mike Kelley exhibit, which explores american pop culture through irreverent, multimedia pieces. The museum staff also augments these displays with events, such as their screening series in collaboration with the Los Angeles Filmforum, which explores the intersection of experimental film and art like a projection screen sewn with pages from DaVinci?s journal.

A few weeks at a performing-arts summer camp could urge children on their way to confidence in public speaking, creative thinking, and a lead role in the school play. At Glee Summer Camp, children are equipped with the skills needed to hop on this track. Kids aged 7?17 gather at a few locations in the Los Angeles area for three weeks, learning dance steps, pop-rock singing techniques, and how to avoid chewing the scenery during acting lessons. They're overseen by award-winning professionals: artistic director and choreographer Cassandra Daurden and musical director, composer, and pianist Paul Kwo. At the end of camp, students show off their skills for agents, casting directors, family and friends in a Glee-style Industry Showcase & performance accompanied by a live band. Afterward, they can shop their r?sum?s around to industry insiders and practice their autographs.
