The Graham Academy is pleased to offer a wide variety of musical theatre programs, designed to suit every age groups’ needs as they develop. We are also working to ensure that every student can find ways to be involved in learning through the arts.
Music for Young People
Pop Music Critique
Start your music journey with a dynamic and creative bucket drumming class! Our two different age groups (Grades JK-K and 1-3) will ensure that our younger students have the opportunity to learn the basics of rhythm and bucket drumming. Popular music will be selected that will engage and energize our aspiring musicians. Bucket drumming provides a unique, fun learning environment for children. It allows them to:
Collaborate while developing self-expression
Learn to play a variety of rhythms using buckets & sticks
Develop hand-eye coordination
Increase self-discipline and active listening
Gain an understanding of melody and syllables
Provide a steady beat/pulse along with recorded music (both pop and children’s music)
AND IT’S JUST A BUCKET LOAD OF FUN!!
Graham Academy’s Interactive Arts Program will engage students interested in computers, gaming, and creativity. We channel students’ love of gaming and digital technology into creative, social, and technical skill development. Participants will explore new ways of story-telling, art-making, and game design in virtual and interactive environments, preparing them to thrive in our increasingly digital world.
Virtual Corner Brook
Virtual Corner Brook is an online, k-12 community building project using Minecraft: Java. The goal: build a virtual representation of the City of Corner Brook. Participants will navigate through a custom Minecraft map created with digital elevation data and a street map superimposed on the game world. Throughout the course of this ongoing activity, we will build our favorite civic buildings and locations, creating a fun and active online community. We also hold online meet-ups, summer camps, and other educational activities through Graham Academy’s Interactive Arts Program using Virtual Corner Brook as the backdrop.
Our Graham Academy Studio Program offers students the opportunity for one-on-one private lessons in strings, piano, drums, and voice, as well as self-accompaniment, theory, songwriting, and more! 30 and 60 minute time slots are available. Rates vary by instructor. No experience necessary!
