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.

Keystone Montessori

Keystone Montessori has come a long way since its founding in 1995. Back then it was operated out of the founder’s home before eventually moving on to rent rooms from Horizon Presbyterian Church. It was only in 2000 that they had gained a strong enough enrollment to move into the facility where they currently reside on Liberty Lane, just off Desert Foothills Parkway and across from the Ahwatukee Foothills Family YMCA.

The school services students as young as 18 years old, as part of their toddler program, and as old as ninth-graders. The current enrollment is around 320 students, who all have access to Spanish, music and arts programs in addition to the full Montessori curriculum.

“We provide an authentic Montessori education which focuses on the independence and whole development of the child, including academic as well as social and emotional growth,” said head of school Cindy Maschoff. “We want our students to become independent citizens of the world.”

The school will be taking the time to present the concept of Montessori education to the public Jan. 29 and 30. At the presentations the school will provide a clear understanding of what Montessori education looks like at each level of education. Those wanting to attend should plan on going to both meetings, with the Jan. 29 meeting going from 6-7 p.m. and the Jan. 30 meeting from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The meetings require attendees to RSVP, which can be done by emailing laura@keystonemontessori.com.
