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.
