Violin Lessons  - This class is an introduction to violin playing in a group setting. Emphasis will be given to proper posture of the body, the head (violin hold), right hand (bow hand), and left hand (fingers, wrist, arm). Instrument  care, and history and appreciation of stringed instruments and western classical music will be incorporated into the class, as well. (Expectation alert: Stringed instrument playing requires much patience in the production of skill, tone, intonation, and ability to play actual music!)

The purpose of science club is to collaborate on various short and long-term projects and investigations into a variety of topics, and have a super fun time doing so. The model we are using is that of a graduate school, with a Principal Investigator (Rob Spang) and a number of students conducting research on a number of topics under my direction. It is expected that each science club participant will produce and present a Regional Science Fair quality project and compete at the IJAS Region 9 Science Fair in Feb./March. | Cost: $180 /year | Questions? email [email protected]
