Art Student Showcase

We have posted a lot of student performances over the past few months, but would like to take a moment to acknowledge our students’ art. Amelia is doing great work!

Amelia is taking both Art and Music and MAP Family Learning Center, and she is doing amazing work. Check out her latest work in the gallery below.

Amelia has been taking art classes at MAP since we opened in 2019. When the pandemic started, the group classes turned into private lessons. She continued with these online private lessons and has made remarkable progress.

The painting featured at the very top of this post was made over the summer, and the three paintings above were sent early December. You can see quite the progress Amelia has made.

Amelia studies art with MAP instructor, Chie Yasuda. You can see Chie’s art on her website at

Steel String and Nylon String Performances by Cameron

MAP guitar student Cameron sent in these wonderful videos to share with everyone. Please enjoy!

MAP Student Cameron Performs Secret Place

Some Background: Cameron started studying in 2015 with MAP Instructor, Devin Ulibarri. At that time, Cameron had studied guitar for a few months with another instructor but had not yet learned to read music. Mr. Devin taught Cameron how to read music on guitar, finger-style technique, and even worked together with Cameron to create some arrangements of video game music. It is amazing to thing that in 5 years time, he has made this much progress. Way to go, Cameron!

Two New Student Videos (older sibling)

Check out these two new videos by a MAP guitar student. She is doing great and has been joining us weekly for classes from India!

She performs two pieces for us from the Royal Conservatory Books (Level 2). The first is “Andante” and the 2nd is “Tango Pour Mario”. Way to go with these challenging pieces.
