At In The Kitchen (ITK) Culinary, down-to-earth restaurant chefs introduce cooks of all ages and skill levels to new techniques and cuisine. They offer a wide variety of classes, teaching everything from gourmet sauce making to cupcake decorating to knife skills. Chef Scott Davis, whom youngsters affectionately call The Culinary Dude, has degrees in both culinary arts and early-childhood education, and he created the kids' cooking program for Whole Foods. He teaches kids aged 4–14 how to follow recipes, safely cut and peel vegetables, or roll and bake patty-cakes.
Students learn how to create meals in an elegant kitchen with a flat-panel TV with surround sound, a subzero fridge and freezer, two six-burner Wolf cooktops, and two Wolf double ovens. Clients can rent out this space for private parties or private cooking classes.
Before Max Abrahams was a music teacher, he was a longtime music student. Earning a degree in music from the University of Denver, Max concentrated in jazz music and bass playing. Additionally, on a sojourn in South Africa, he not only studied traditional African music at the University of Kwazulu-Natal in Durban––he learned to play the zulu drum.
He draws on his years of study, as well as stints playing with the Lamont Symphony and assorted jazz trios, as he teaches guitar and bass. His lessons start simple: during the introductory ones, he encourages students to strum out basic songs. However, the lessons soon ramp up to musical theory, sight-reading, and other higher-level material. He also helps his students branch out into a panoply of musical styles, from heavy metal to R&B to pop.

Adult and kids classes are available in a variety of subjects, from voice and songwriting to acoustic guitar and ukulele. Their community-outreach programs also include digital-audio classes and rock-band ensembles, and kids' summer music camps keep youngsters learning even when they're not in school.
