Your journey begins here! Sherwood at Columbia College Chicago is a gateway for anyone who wants to be engaged in the arts. We provide high-quality and accessible programs that are open to anyone who wishes to participate.
At Sherwood, we believe that play is essential to a child’s development. That’s why all of our Early Childhood classes are taught in a fun and informal learning environment that allows children to explore and discover their creativity.
The Suzuki Method was developed by Japanese music educator Shinichi Suzuki, based on his belief that in a nurturing environment, every child can learn to play an instrument. Through the Suzuki method, children as young as three master basic music skills, improve listening ability, and acquire physical comfort with their instrument and with performing.
Sherwood cultivates your child's potential through fun and accessible classes in music, dance and theatre. Our kids programs are open to anyone who wishes to participate, and are taught in a playful and informal learning environment.
We are proud to offer high-quality and accessible music classes for adults of all ages and ability levels that are social, vibrant and diverse. Adults can choose to participate in an introductory class or join one of our speciality ensembles.
Individual Lessons enable students to learn technique and repertoire that is best suited to their particular needs, and are a vital part of a musician's education. Individual lessons also foster important life skills such as discipline, perseverance, self-motivation, patience, focus, time management, and confidence.
