About Summer Learning
Accelerated Music Program
FCM Summer Learning is an accelerated music training program that helps students develop music literacy through daily exercises in ear training, choral singing, rhythm training and drum circle. In addition, students participate in ensemble training, and discover music history, composers and performers through guest lectures and multimedia coaching.
Cultural Immersion - Chinese Language, Martial Arts, Chinese Dance, Games and Fitness
Students are exposed to various elements of Chinese culture, including language, martial arts, dance and games. They get to bring home their crafts, play Chinese Chess and work out during Martial Arts and Dance classes.
Every Friday is Special Event Day
Every Friday, students gain perspectives with unique activities. Indoor activities include special workshops, movies, community projects and visits by guest artists. When ready, students may perform at nearby community events, attend concerts or participate in local walks/tours.
Please note that curriculum and schedules are subject to customization and/or changes.
