Addendum to Malden PorchFest 2024: More student performances

Last Saturday, MAP Family Learning Center students and teachers performed for Malden PorchFest. We had an hour slot from 1-2pm at Malden City Hall Plaza. Everything went well, and the kids and their families all seemed to have a great time.

Some of the students, however, were not able to participate in the live event, either because of schedule conflicts or because they are taking their lessons online. (Yes, we continue to provide remote lessons.) For those students who couldn’t make it, we asked them to send us recordings of them performing at home so that they could still showcase their work.

The following playlist includes performances by students who are taking remote lessons, footage from a rehearsal of our advanced guitar ensemble with a student who wasn’t able to participate the day of PorchFest because of a volley ball game, as well as recording from the Plaza so that those who couldn’t make it can watch what the others did. We hope you like it as much as we do!

Online Classes

Amid the recent changes to daily living due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MAP has temporarily suspended in-person classes.

Currently, we are doing all online classes. These classes entail doing a lesson over a video conference, regular communications with families with instructional media, and regular group meetings over video conference. Please see the pictures to see what online instruction looks like from our office.
