Music Maker Workshops

3233 E. Chandler Blvd., Suite 2

While their music academy is by far the most popular summer camp offered at the family-owned Music Maker Workshops in Ahwatukee, a blossoming art camp is now available for interested students.

Co-owner Shelley Yakubow said the new art camp was introduced to Music Maker students last month, and is a more relaxing option for students to take, along with the other music-related camps.

“Lessons are specific to elements of art, and then they get to create,” Yakubow said. “It’s awesome, and soothing.”

With about seven students so far participating, the art camp has room to grow to its more than 160 summer camp attendees and more than 400 regular season students.

Students in the art camp learn about shapes, values, composition and color through painting, paper maché, watercolor, print making and collage work.

Music Maker also offers a music academy, a boot camp for all ages, kinder music classes and a rock band camp.

School highlight: Inspire Kids Montessori

Tucked away in the corner of The Plaza at Mountainside in Ahwatukee, Inspire Kids Montessori has been teaching its students through Montessori curriculum to enhance their schooling experience.

The school currently houses nearly 60 students, from toddlers to 6 year olds.

Director Diana Darmawaskita said Inspire Kids Montessori began in 2011 at its originally location, and expanded the school in August 2013.

Darmawaskita said the school has received strong support from the staff and parents, which furthered the school’s success.

“We have an individualized program… there’s not a one size fits all,” she said. “Our teachers are very experienced and Montessori certified. They have a passion for working with children.”

Inspire Kids Montessori will be adding one additional class in the fall to meet the demand of incoming students.
