Ms. Brenda Chambers, master teacher and director of the Tucson String Choir Academy, offers after school classes for beginner violin. These entry level classes consist of students, ages 5 to 15, who perform at a variety of functions on and off campus. Aside from the joy and excitement of learning to play and perform on the violin and cello, the skills acquired aid in present and future academic endeavors. Published scientific studies have shown that the effect of string education on young minds significantly increases development of memory, literacy, mathematics, and overall IQ.
The Young Rembrandts program teaches drawing, the fundamental skill of all visual arts, with a see - touch - do method that all kids can succeed with, learn, and love! Utilizing an innovative step-by-step method, we teach students basic to advanced drawing skills, coloring techniques, and art vocabulary. We believe that drawing is the bedrock skill required for future artistic success and that all children can and should learn to draw. You’ll see increased art abilities, learning skills, self-confidence, and self-esteem as your child brings home a new work of art after each and every class. Lessons are never repeated from session to session so students can continue to take our classes over, and over again! Watch your child reach a new level of potential with this award-winning program. All supplies provided. Directed by Eledel Giddings for ages 3.5 to 13. Visit the Young Rembrandts website to register.
