Acting Up! Musical Theatre Class (1st-3rd)

Instuctor: Annie Venable

Email: annieven@earthlink.net

Phone: 321-917-0733

Tuition: $20 per month ($100 per semester)

Material Fee: $20 per semester;  used to pay for music, props, sets, classroom and craft supplies, and possibly publisher/royalty fees. 

Required Text/Supplies: Costume components and stage props may be requested

Pre-Requisites: None

Description:     These young students will have fun learning a wide variety of musical concepts as well as basic theatrical components. The fundamentals of music (melody, rhythm, dynamics, steady beat) will be taught and reinforced through games, musical crafts, rhythm instruments, and hands-on-activities.  Fun songs will be incorporated periodically to teach Bible verses and other facts.  We will learn about famous composers and sing a wide variety of both Christian and secular music.,    In addition to singing, simple skits, drama activities and games will be an integral part of this course. These will be designed to practice team building and to teach acting skills such as stage presence, vocal projection, and improvisation. There will be at least one performance each semester. Performances may include singing for a Sunday church service, going to a nursing home or assisted living, going Christmas caroling, or putting on a concert for family and friends. (Contemporary Christian songs for a church service and 50’s songs for a nursing home are examples of past performances.)  Students will also have the exciting opportunity to participate in a musical drama (with costumes, set, and props).   Parents will be provided with either a CD or links to the music that we are learning so that students can enjoy the songs at home.  There may be a few evening practices (3-4) in preparation for the drama, but other than that no outside time should be required.  I am looking forward to a great year making music together!

Email: andipate@yahoo.com

Tuition: $20 per month ($100/semester)

Pre-Requisites:  A certain level of finger dexterity and fine motor skills is required to learn crochet. The age when this is developed enough varies from individual to individual, ranging from about 6 years old and older. I would be happy to let any younger children interested in learning crochet attend one class for free to see if they have the necessary skills yet. 

Description:  Crochet is a fiber art and crafting skill. It encompasses fine motor skills, math and counting, patterns, concentration, and creativity to create unique handcrafted items. Crochet can be used to boost and develop creativity, to relax and to reduce anxiety, to build confidence, and as a profitable skill. It is a truly enjoyable skill and hobby that I love to do myself, and love to teach and share with others. In this class I will teach beginners the basics, such as how to hold the hook and yarn, how to begin a project and how to end one, as well as the basic stitches used. They will learn and practice by crocheting their own items, such as washcloths, scarves, drink coasters, hats, etc. For those already familiar with crochet I will teach more advanced stitches, provide any insight or suggestions on their projects, and help however needed as they continue to create.
