A Complete Curriculum
Diversity, accessibility, a sense of community, and a range of opportunities characterize the Hochstein experience. Each department provides balanced and varied offerings:
Hochstein provides a comprehensive curriculum designed to provide a well-rounded musical education, including weekly lessons, regular evaluation, frequent performance and ensemble opportunities, and musicianship courses. Taking part in all aspects of the curriculum will not only introduce you to the delights of music, but also help you perform more easily, broaden your musical skills beyond your instrument, and make new musical friends.
Hochstein offers a wide variety of dance options, including ballet, modern, jazz, tap, creative movement, and various ethnic styles. Classes are offered weekly and as students progress, they are encouraged to participate in multiple classes and/or styles. Ensemble and performance opportunities, and instruction in topics including choreography, dance history, injury prevention and stage make-up, add excitement and depth to the program.
Individual and group sessions are tailored to the specific needs of those with developmental, social/emotional, learning, and physical challenges. Performance opportunities at Hochstein and in the community offer students a chance to socialize and experience performing in an ensemble or as a soloist. Group sessions are available at Hochstein or in community programs, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, rehabilitation centers, or group residences. Additional programming includes community choirs, handbell groups, wellness classes, percussion/drumming groups, and a special MusicARTS class for students on the Autism Spectrum.
