Online Curriculum Option

From a local mom: Below is information about the online classes offered through Landry Academy. Our family has really enjoyed using them. My daughter is currently doing her high school science and math with them AND also going on a one month study abroad trip for missions/sight seeing. They are live classes once a week, with assignments and accountability through online submissions and quizzes as needed the rest of the week. It takes a huge burden off of me for my high school classes to know that someone else is keeping up with making assignments and doing grading. I need to get the books and make sure she keeps up with her assignments, but this is very helpful overall. Continue reading “Online Curriculum Option” »

Recorder Classes, Ages 6-12, Gurnee

The Veritas Center is excited to again offer the RECORDER KARATE class.

1 x/wk for 60 min for 10 weeks.
Wednesdays 2:00 – 3:00.
February 10 – Apr 20. (No class Spring Break March 23)

WHERE:  The Veritas Center in Gurnee

WHO:  Kids ages 6-12.  Min 3 students.  Max 10 students.

WHAT:  This class will give students the opportunity to begin to read music, play real music on the recorder, and understand basic music theory. Students will be taught proper posture, how to read and play music, and instrument care. The recorder class is a great way to introduce your child to basic music principles and basic music appreciation. Students will learn note recognition and rhythm. The class will include instruction in the basics of reading music, learning notes on the recorder, and playing a variety of simple songs.  This is a great introduction to playing an instrument.  Most students have had a recorder class before starting a band program, so the year or two prior to starting band is a great time to do this class.  Students will use the professional version of the “Recorder Karate” curriculum, along with the play-along tracks in classes.

TUITION and MATERIALS:   $250 includes materials and you’ll keep the recorder!
