  • Debate and Philosophy (5-8)

    This is an introductory debate enrichment course for self-motivated students interested in learning how to use debate as a tool to achieve greater and understanding and empathy. Students with large amounts of competitive debate experience, as well as those hoping to gain skills for debating on the national level, will likely not find this course useful. This course covers the basics of case construction, sound reasoning, logic, cross-examination, rebuttal, and persuasive delivery. The central focus of the course is logic- and fact-based reasoning that leads to constructive and informed discussions and greater understanding of others’ perspectives. In other words, the goal is not how to win a debate, but how to use debate as a means to see an issue from multiple perspectives.   We will use issues relevant to middle school students for content. These might include: cell phones should be banned in middle school; a parent’s right to know ought to be valued over a child’s right to privacy; and more.

  • Vocal Training (2-6)

    It is never too early to begin exploring your voice and to get excited about music.  For students who miss singing every day at school and are looking for a way to continue vocal training, we will train the voice in a healthy way without damage.  Depending on the student’s age and experience, private lessons will focus on engaging exercises to explore the young voice or techniques to train the growing voice.  Previous experience or training is welcomed, but certainly not required.  All that is necessary is a passion for singing.
