FALL KIDS CLASSES ARE NOW IN SESSION
At Columbia College Chicago, young creatives shape their talent through diverse and mission-driven classes and camps that provide the opportunity to dip into topics such as music, theatre, fashion, social media, design, visual arts, dance, filmmaking, and many others. All programs are taught by instructors with deep experience in teaching the arts and media to children and teens. Absolutely no application or audition is required to register, and everyone is welcome to participate.
Offered at Sherwood Community Music School, our Kids Piano Lab program is an ideal way to try out the piano in a group setting and build the foundation for continued individual study in piano or other instruments. Students will acquire a familiarity with the keyboard, learn beginning music reading skills, and play simple melodies. Classes are taught in our digital keyboard lab.
Are you interested in playing for family and friends or becoming the next rock star? Kids Guitar class is a great way to get introduced to the guitar! Learn chords, strumming patterns, and melodic lines as well as how to play with others in a fun, relaxed setting.
All of our dance classes were developed in collaboration with Columbia College Chicago's Dance Center, and offered in their state-of-the-art studios, located at 1306 South Michigan Avenue.
