  • Silver Music Studios
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Our music instructors are all professionals and have been teaching, and many also perform, for over 10 years each. We do not simply go off of a method book system. Each teacher assesses the student level and interest. Lessons are then tailored accordingly. The studio is relaxing and respectful. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? We assess the needs on a per student basis. Guitar and Bass students often only need a manuscript book for the instructor to create the lesson plan. Supplemental other books may apply depending on focus. Voice often utilizes cd accompaniment. Piano incorporates method and repertoire books. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I have been performing music over 30 years and teaching over 20. I started at a few schools and traveled home to home. Natural progression led to opening my own school and increasing offering of other instructors. No greater satisfaction than the monitored growth of another thru the musical arts. What do you love most about your job? Seeing a student of any age shine as they progress. Some start very shy and uncommunicative. Music taps into a visceral part of the soul. Unleashing that positive energy is a charge for everyone.

  • Huntington Learning Center
    In the late 1970s, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's particular set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey. Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.

  • Morris Arboretum
    John Morris made his fortune in iron and then, with the help of his sister Lydia, turned to a far more delicate medium: exotic plants. Starting in the 1880s, the duo traveled the world in search of specimens to bring back to their Philadelphia home. That formidable collection blossomed into the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania after the siblings donated their estate to the University of Pennsylvania in 1933. Their carefully manicured English-style gardens, complete with swan pond and azalea meadow, now also belong to the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors today stroll winding footpaths among 13,000 plants, hailing from 27 countries; there's a prominent Japanese influence in several areas, including the Japanese Hill and Water Garden. Stately trees dot the property, including trident maple, Engler beech, and Bender oak—the latter of which researchers believe may predate the Morris estate by more than 100 years. And some notable plants are kept inside: the Victorian-style fernery encases tropical fronds and trickling waterfalls in a balmy paradise of glass. Children especially flock to the Garden Railway, where G-scale model trains chug through a miniature garden, passing buildings made entirely of natural materials by skilled chipmunk carpenters. The Garden Railway runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and on weekends through mid-October. They and their minders also tend to enjoy scrambling across wooden bridges suspended high above the forest floor to get a bird's-eye view of the arboretum at the Tree Adventure.
