Feel the Steel RISING GRADE 3 THROUGH ADULT: Students will learn to play in an authentic “Caribbean Steel Orchestra”. No musical training is required as the pan is uniquely different from most conventional instruments. Ellie Mannette, one of the major inventors of the Steel Drum, has taught, trained, and furnished our studio with this magnificent instrument. Play songs like Day-O and Tequila in the very first lesson This is a great opportunity for families who want to do something together where everyone begins on the same level. We warn parents that children catch on easily, so be prepared to defend your musical honor. Pan Jumbie RISING GRADES 1 AND 2: This class introduces younger children to the exciting world of Caribbean Steel Drum Music. The Pan Jumbie is a smaller and uniquely colored “youth friendly” steel drum which consists of notes for both melody and rhythm strumming similar to the exciting pans used in “Feel The Steel” New ! Mallet Madness RISING GRADE 1 TO ADULT: Marimbas, the focus of our mallet madness for the summer, are large wooden xylophone-like instruments made with hand-cut wood mounted over resonating tubes. We start with African music whose repeating patterns produce melodies and rhythms that are easy to learn and fun to play. By the end of the first class, students are playing a song together! The basics are easy to learn as the notes are large and played with one mallet in each hand. We focus on rhythm, listening skills and ensemble playing. Intro to Taiko RISING GRADE 2 TO ADULT: Combine martial arts with drumming and you have the national music of Japan! Students will learn history, culture and techniques of Taiko as they prepare fundamental drum routines. Taiko is easily attainable to those who think of themselves as not so rhythmically coordinated. New ! Hawaiian Ukulele RISING GRADE 2 THROUGH ADULT: The ukulele is one of the easiest string instruments to learn, even if you have never played an instrument you’ll leave the first class playing a song. (and loving it!) You’ll learn Hawaiian tunes and more, as songs are taught through visual example as participants watch and then imitate. The ukulele is having a comeback throughout the country, and you’ll see why. Plan to play for a fall beach bonfire - ALOHA!! Check out a video link on our website. It’s easy to learn to strum.

New ! World Percussion RISING GRADE 5 THROUGH ADULT: Students by the end of the summer will have a firm foundation in percussion technologies from around the world. Our studio will be full of instruments from Japan, Africa, Latin America and the United States. Djembies, Dun Duns, Taiko Drums, Timbales, Congas, and of course the drum set will be taught to these lucky participants. Any student involved in music should take this class and learn the rhythms of Calypso, Samba, African and good old fashioned rock and roll. New ! Intro to African Dance RISING GRADES 5 THROUGH ADULT: This is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of dance. Quest Academy has formed an African Drum and Marimba Ensemble and hopes to include dancers. Colleges throughout the United States are offering this addition to their music programs. No former dance instruction is required. New ! Intro to Carribean Dance RISING GRADES 5 THROUGH ADULT: Andrea Rodgers, dance instructor, has been playing Caribbean Steel Drums since elementary school. She is a gold medal pan player and understands the “rhythm of the islands”. Have fun in this low “Key West” class. No former dance instruction is required. New Intro to Broadway Dance ! RISING GRADES 5 THROUGH ADULT: There is nothing quite like the excitement of dancers on stage in a Broadway musical. Launch out to a new experience in a relaxed atmosphere where everyone is a beginner and can test the waters of their creativity. No former dance instruction is required. Andrea Rodgers: instructor. Beginning Piano RISING GRADE 1 TO ADULT: “The ultimate musical teaching tool.” Piano promotes reading, counting, audible skills, and fine motor dexterity. Electric pianos and synthesizers offer creativity and have become a necessity in many theaters, churches and performance venues. Take the opportunity to experience this wonderful instrument. Beginning Guitar RISING GRADES 5 THROUGH ADULT: Learn to strum major and minor chords in a recreational style. By the end of the summer you will be playing “Eight Days a Week” by the Beatles, “Amazing Love” by The Newsboys and “Happy Birthday in three different keys by Delilah Rudolph.
