Callaghan Music Classes for Homeschooled students:

Chelsea Callaghan is currently offering daytime classes and lessons at her home studio in Burnaby, near Metrotown. These classes are specifically designed for students who are home-schooled and she is willing to provide documentation for portfolio submission. The following classes will be offered on a weekly basis (based on enrollment).

Classes will be held in studio at 6529 Randolph Ave Burnaby BC (South Burnaby)

Musical Theatre:
This class is designed for students wanting to learn about Musical Theatre. It is a performance class and as such the students will learn musical theatre songs that will eventually be staged. Another big part of any musical theatre production is acting and students will be given monologues and readings that they will prepare for the class. Finally, voice and music training will be included as we work through the musicals that inspire and excite them. Rate: $40 per class (based on enrollment, Fall session runs 10 classes, 10 class commitment required) Time: 10am-Noon Tuesday mornings
Enrollment Maximum: 5

Elementary Music:
This class is designed for students ages 5-10. Learning about music can be fun! We will learn about notes, rhythm, musical instruments, and how to have fun and make music at the same time. It is meant for those new to music who want to learn the basics without the structure of private lessons. Rate: $25 per class (based on enrollment, Fall session runs 10 classes, 10 class commitment required) Time: 10am-11am Friday mornings
Enrollment Maximum: 5

Contemporary Music:
This class is designed to allow freedom of expression in the music that is listened to most frequently by the students. The course will be tailor made to suit the students and we will work on music that they are comfortable with. While learning music in a variety of contemporary styles we will also work on musicianship. This allows the student to learn about music in an environment that they can relate to. Rate: $40 per class (based on enrollment, Fall session runs 10 classes, 10 class commitment required) Time: 10am-Noon Wednesday mornings Enrollment Maximum: 5
