In print and online, Nevada Magazine also keeps readers abreast of the Silver State's latest events and shows, from upcoming sporting contests to the newest art exhibits.
When Joan Barnes founded Gymboree Play & Music in 1976, she envisioned a facility where parents and children could play together in a safe and age-appropriate environment. In the following decades, Gymboree Play & Music spread to more than 30 countries across the globe, helping youngsters from infants to 5 years old develop cognitive, physical, and social skills. The company's instructors lead classes such as Play & Learn, its flagship course, in which parents and kids move through a seven-level program filled with storytelling, play activities, and debates on the merits of sandwich crust. Talented staffers also prep youngsters for school and foster development in areas such as music, art, and sports. Throughout all classes, they make use of custom play equipment designed by acclaimed playground designer and seesaw-tamer Jay Beckwith.

Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, with topics ranging from basic reading and writing to complex algebraic formulas. Sylvan's certified instructors are experienced so they understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.

The expert musicians also teach at all levels of expertise. For beginners, they cover basic skills such as chords and scale patterns. They take advanced students farther down the guitar's sound hole, delving into music theory and the dark messages heard when playing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” backwards. For anyone looking to get out of the house, the instructors can host sessions at their own home-based studios.
More than just its moniker Sin City, Las Vegas is a town filled with some of the world's best performers. After graduating from a prestigious music conservatory, entertainers Coren and Ren Zai dedicated their lives to show business, both as performers and instructors of some of the area's brightest talents. A prolific musician, Coren has opened for several blues legends and appeared in Vegas performances such as The Frankie & Sherry Show, a tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Of her 20 years as vocal coach, 14 of them were spent as a certified level-4 teacher of the the speech-level singing method used by more than 120 Grammy winners.
Ren Zai teaches the technique of acting naturally and intuitively, similar to the teachings of Constantin Stanislavski and Stella Adler. A self-described "actor, playwright, composer, arranger, director, and acting coach," Ren is also a busy filmmaker and producer, founding Dreamweavers Professional Performing Arts
to both develop his own work and cultivate the exceptional talent around him. He is also the originator of the "Natural Actor Program for Singers, Dancers, and Actors."
