Under the tutelage of certified instructors, Paul Mitchell The School's scissor-wielding students cut, color, and primp keratin capes to professional-level heights. Although tender-footed trimmers don't carry their licenses quite yet, they skillfully trim and sculpt tresses into stylish creations worthy of their mother's mantel or specimen cooler (an $8 value). Newly sheared strands also receive a basic color treatment for a prismatic spectrum shift (a $25 value). Those who wish to focus on more phalangeal regions can opt for a soothing mani-pedi, a revitalizing spa treatment that pampers paws sullied from hours spent in the office, kitchen, or local tar pit (a $34 value).
Musicology School of Music offers lessons in dozens of instruments, from guitar to mandolin and singing to trombone. Instructors hold classes in 12 private teaching studios, each built with sound-proofing materials to enhance privacy and concentration. Of course, part of a full musical education is learning to play with others, so the music experts also hold larger gatherings in their group classroom and recital hall.
They focus on multiple aspects of the musical process, providing amps, full drum kits with pads, and other accompaniment instruments. They also teach students the art of recording music, incorporating various types of music-mixing and playing software throughout their program.
