It's Show~Time!
Performing Arts Studio

Teaching Staff:

Director: Wendy Erickson
Wendy has taught Sunshine Generation for over 8 years. Now she brings her vast experience with music and children to directing the business at "Show~Time" studio.
For the Fall 2009 Season Wendy will be teaching beginning piano as Brenton's extra curricular life makes piano lesson scheduling difficult. He will teach piano when his schedule permits, but Wendy will be the main piano teacher this session providing lesson days and times you can plan on.
Wendy is so excited to be teaching "Voice Performance" classes. This will give her a chance to combine all of her experience into helping your child discover their "inner STAR quality" and find joy in their talents while they learn to "Entertain"

Teacher: Brenton Erickson
Brenton has been playing and enjoying the piano for over 5 years now. He has often been called on to accompany others in church, school and in his theatrical endeavors.
Brenton has been singing and performing in Musical Theater since the age of 9. We are fortunate to have his theatrical "know-how" as he advises our Voice Performance teacher and as he produces and directs our recitals.

Teacher: Alise Erickson
Alise is a very gifted dancer and choreographer. She has performed many dance and voice solos in her young career. She has been dancing for 10 years and choreographing for 4 of those years. She choreographed our most applauded numbers in Sunshine Generation. You will love to see your children grow in their dance ability and confidence under her skillful guidance.

Teacher: Ben Armstrong
Ben is a talented musician. He plays piano, trombone, clarinet and bass clarinet. He has been a vital member of his school and community band groups for 7 years. He loves working with children and really knows how to boost their self esteem. Band students will not only enjoy their classes with Ben , they will excel in their talents also.

During this time they will learn proper breathing technique, diction, voice and facial expression, how to perform with a microphone and basic music theory.

At Show~Time, we feel the best part is having the chance to "show off" all of your hard work! We will have a recital where students can perform what they have prepared twice a year. Our recitals will be in November and April each year.

Call Miss Wendy 602-579-5570 or email to verify class times you want are available.

If for any reason we cannot fulfill our commitment to you we will refund moneys for classes not taught.
