The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab6:40 AM
Today, Ralph is starting his music lessons under the 14K program of The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab in Robinson's Galleria. We decided to not enroll him in summer taekwondo classes for the meantime since there's a conflict in schedule. He can resume his taekwondo classes in June anyway.
I have always planned on sending Ralph to Ryan Cayabyab's since we first moved back to Manila from Laguna. When he was six, there was not a summer program available for kids his age. I ended up signing him up to Trumpet's Playshop instead. I was advised to wait for him to be 8 years old before I can finally enroll him. This year is THE year!
The 14K Program is a music curriculum designed by none other than Mr. C himself. It is a class for kids aged 8 to 12 years old that combines ensemble singing and dancing. It also includes basic music theory and instrumental ensemble. The program is divided into two classes. One is for the eight to ten year age bracket while the other is for the remaining pupils with ages eleven to twelve. Both classes meet for an hour from Monday to Friday. Ralph's class is scheduled at 1 to 2 pm.
Aside from the 14K Program, Ryan Cayabyab's Music School also offers Musiktheatre for teens (13-17 years old). Teens here learn not only singing and dancing but also how to act on stage. The class meets for 2 hours daily.
The two programs are classes and not individually instructed. Individual lessons on voice, piano, violin, and guitar are available the whole year round.
If you are interested in enrolling your child here, please contact The Music School of Ryan Cayabyab through telephone numbers 637-9840 or 914-5055. Their studio can be found at Park Avenue Robinson's Galleria. They also have a studio at Sunvar Plaza, Pasay Road, Makati (just behind Makati Cinema Square). Ralph's 14K Program fee only cost us Php 7,000.
