课程推荐:

  1. 钢琴课。本学期的音乐课为钢琴入门课,教师Patsy Lane具有多年的 儿童音乐教学经验,将引领儿童入门钢琴和音乐。老师将带键盘让学生 有机会实践,学生最好自己带键盘,以获得更好体验。

另:Art 1的学生都年龄较小,因此老师需要在每个学生身上花费较多的时间。 为保证教学质量,老师提出最多只能接受8位学生。目前已有14位学生报名, 我们本着先来先服务的原则,只能保证前8位学生。请在8月13日开学当天注册 Art 1的家长考虑选择其它课程,如果有空位,我们会通知你们,谢谢你们的 理解和配合。

Dear MCS Community:

All the Chinese and elective classes will meet this Sunday afternoon.

Course recommendation:

  1. Introduction to the Piano. This would be an introduction to piano for those who do not already take piano lessons. In the hour, each child could have limited time on our keyboard, and we could supply cardboard learning keyboards along with piano books to be used as we are teaching the class. Skills for performance would be encouraged as well as practicing at home would be expected. Students could also bring their keyboards if they happen to own one to help in a situation like this. Ms. Patsy Lane and Miss Charlotte Lane have years of teaching experience for both includes multiple ages in classroom settings and private lessons.
  2. Kung-Fu. Ms. Chang is currently a visiting scholar in University of Memphis Confucius Institute. She holds a faculty position in Kung Fu at Xi’an Finance and Economics College, Xi’an, China. She won many champions and numerous awards in international and national Kung Fu competitions between 1985 and 1994 in China. She also obtained several teaching awards due to her excellence in teaching Kung Fu. She is the judge for the 8th US International Wushu-Kungfu Tournament USA WKF National Wushu Team Trials. There are two Kung-Fu sessions: 3:30-4:30 pm and 4:30-5:30 pm. Both classes are suitable for all ages. Please select the one that fits your schedule.
Notice Art 1 will accept only 8 students. For those who registered for Art 1 on August 13, please consider other courses. We will notify you if spaces are available. Thank you for your understanding.
