Is your kid (and you) missing their after school enrichment classes since they’ve been social distancing? Flex Academies, a DC area provider of aftercare programs and summer camps can help with that!
Flex Academies ONE is the new virtual version of the service, so kids everywhere can now learn about the things they love through live streamed classes. Imagine someone who teaches music lessons, hip hop dancing, soccer, or coding coming to your home every weekday to work with your child. While that’s not possible right now, Flex Academies ONE offers the next best thing: Scheduled online learning experiences with certified instructors in different areas of interest.
A variety of classes are available for kids in Pre-K through 6th grade, from theatre to arts & crafts to sports to chess to martial arts — and much more. Even better, you have a chance to win a 10-pack of classes for your child!
Giveaway: For a chance to win a 10-class pack from Flex Academies ONE, simply leave a comment below telling me your kid’s favorite at-home activity since social distancing began. Get an extra chance to win by entering on the KidFriendly DC Facebook Page, too. This giveaway will run through Sunday, April 26, 2020, then a winner will be drawn at random and notified on Monday, April 27. Good luck!
Does your child love to sing or pretend to play a guitar? Are they the next Mozart or Justin Bieber?
If your kid loves music — or maybe you want to introduce them to it in a fun way — there is a school whose specialty is just that!
International School of Music, with two locations in Bethesda and Potomac, is the premier provider of music lessons in all instruments and voice to students of all ages and levels. They bring together a community of dedicated, experienced, world-class faculty that offers personalized lessons in piano, guitar, voice, violin, viola, cello, flute, drums, saxophone, clarinet, harp, recorder, trumpet, trombone, bassoon, ensembles, group classes, toddler and preschooler music classes and amazing performance opportunities.
Their teaching methods are student-centered and focused on individual learning styles and personal goals to help each student reach his or her full musical potential. With a flexible curriculum that rewards practicing and achievement, their students get to explore music they are passionate about, whether they play classical, rock, pop, jazz, folk, etc. And with our same-time sibling scheduling, the families enjoy convenience and flexibility!
Music lessons teach kids valuable skills that they can carry with them through life. Children practice basic math when they count the rhythm, reading comprehension as they learn how to read music, and creativity as they figure out how to express themselves. Bonus: They also benefit from better concentration, self-discipline, self-expression, and confidence. Even more, all of these skills are mixed in with fun music making!
Check out International School of Music to see how you can book an introductory lesson for your child, try classes yourself, or make it a family affair!
