Music & Drama with Mrs. Impala

At Walnut Canyon, we are all SuperStarz! Although we can't be together at school right now, I'm still here to help the students of Walnut Canyon explore music and drama with video lessons that will be posted each week. These videos will be posted on this website for the entire school year so you can access them if you missed one or want to watch a video again. We will be having lots of special guests joining our video lessons while we learn and explore together. Below you will also find some additional music and drama resources for everyone to have fun with during this time of distance learning. I hope all of the kids enjoy these videos and activities and I can't wait to see everyone at school again soon!

I would love to see all of the wonderful Walnut Canyon students trying the activities from our music and drama lesson videos. Please feel free to take pictures and short videos and share them in our private Facebook group for Walnut Canyon SupderStarz.

SuperStarz Music and Drama Videos

You will need a username and password to access the videos. Please be sure to use the username and password provided by your teacher. Please email me at jeanetteairenstudio@gmail.com if you need assistance. These videos are for educational purposes only and are only to be viewed by the students of Walnut Canyon School. Please do not share the videos with students from other schools.

Just in case there may be some confusion, at school the kids are used to calling me Mrs. Impala but, at my studio and at my after-school programs, my students call me Miss Jeanette. So, in these videos, I will be called Miss Jeanette.

Each week, I will post 1 video for each category bellow. The videos for the PreK-2nd grade students and the videos for the 3rd-5th grade students will have similarities and some sections of the videos will be the same, but the main lesson will be more advanced for the older kids. Enjoy!

Check out the Jeanette Airen Performing Arts Studio YouTube Channel for more videos and to see our virtual play performances.

Private Lessons and Group Classes

If your child would like to experience more music and drama fun with Miss Jeanette and Miss Kelsey, check out our private and group music and drama classes under the "Programs" tab in the menu at the top of the page. Right now all classes are being held online using Zoom but we hope to be back in our studio located in Newbury Park soon. When the studio opens, we will continue to offer lessons online too!
