    “Mommy, you said if I put my dish away I can have a cookie. I did it so can I have my cookie now?” Whether coming from the mouth of a three year old, or a Supreme Court Justice, logic is part of every day life.

We will observe illogical statements in real life instances such as TV commercials and popular songs. This class will help all students not just in their everyday thinking, but in their future academic endeavors. In short, it will teach them how to think.

Advanced players will be coached on their current repertoire from their private teachers, as well as challenged with sight-reading and rhythm games.
