Compton Children’s Academy, Enrichment Classes – Programs
Piano is an amazing enrichment for early childhood education. Our weekly Piano Enrichment Class — offered September through June — will help to further a diverse skillset for your child, such as fine motor skills and self-confidence.
Music is a language; young children can learn faster and easier while they’re young so they can develop a lifelong appreciation for music as an art. Learning music improves little one’s experience in a variety of subjects. Math and music, for example, are highly intertwined. Children will become familiar with complex concepts — like divisions, fractions and patterns – with fun and ease.
Our piano teacher, Deborah Gibson, has over 60 years of piano experience and a Master’s in Education (M.Ed.), with licensure through the Commonwealth of Virginia for Professional Counseling (LPC).
Make up classes will be available to students who are unable to attend a class.
