My Music Room, owned by singer/guitarist Robin Lopate, gives private and group lessons in Kirkwood. I have posted some new guitar classes up on my website – I am looking for teens and kids to fill some classes up. There is also a “Woman to Woman” guitar class, ages 11 and up, great for moms and daughters, and “Guitar For Teens”, for teens only.   Class schedules will be determined based on students’ availability. Discount for any private or group student that schedules between 9am-3pm. Please check my website for class descriptions. I am also accepting private students. If you are interested in a class, let me know. I have to have at least 3 students to run a class.

Visit Guitar Center in Bridgeton
I would like to extend an offer to any interested homeschool students and their families to come by, tour our new studios and join any of our lessons programs at a discounted rate! We offer lessons for guitar, bass, drums, keys, ukulele and vocals. We work with any skill level and would love the opportunity to teach those who have been so helpful to the community. Thanks for your time and please let me know if you have any questions or would like to set up a time to take a tour!

Please visit and check the Ongoing Offerings section for homeschool specific links to many area attractions. And don’t forget to check out the top tabs too! Please feel free to forward this email to other homeschoolers and encourage them to join the email loop; sign up is at the top of the right column. LIKE THE LIST ON FACEBOOK! FOLLOW ON TWITTER!
If you know of an event, class, happening, or link you would like to see added, please contact me at zana8796 [at] yahoo [dot] com  and please let me know if you have any questions or find incorrect/out of date information. Comments are not available, but sharing is.
The posted events are open to all homeschoolers in the St. Louis, MO, area (including St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln County, Franklin County, and Jefferson County in MO, and Madison County, Monroe County, and St. Clair County in IL, and surrounding regions).
NOTE: Inclusion in this list does not necessarily indicate endorsement by the blog owner. I try to include as many events or classes I know of in the Greater St. Louis area that would be of special interest to homeschoolers. Some of these events come from a distinctively “Christian” perspective, while others are purely “secular” in nature. If you see things that you would not be particularly interested in, just ignore them and look for the things that do appeal to you.
