Mayor Gary Christenson recently attended the grand opening of MAP Family Learning Center located at 388 Pleasant St. Suite #304, across from the Beebe school. The afterschool program serves to provide students with supplemental high-quality Music, Art, and Programming (MAP) classes.

They offer classical guitar instruction by “Mr. Devin” who has taught students in the Malden area for more than five years. Mr. Devin holds a masters’ in music from New England Conservatory and two of his students have placed in the Boston GuitarFest Youth Competition. He teaches beginners all the way up to advanced ensemble. 

Also offered is a “Music+Code” curriculum that explores math, music, and computation in an integrated and fun way. Leading the classes is former MIT Media Lab director Walter Bender and local musician, Sachiko Murata. Walter Bender and Mr. Devin co-created “Music Blocks,” a visual programming language for music, which is the tool they use for teaching the Music+Code curriculum at the MAP Family Learning Center. Additionally, Ms. Chie, a Boston-based visual artist teaches art. She offers fun classes in “toddler sensory play” on Tuesday and Thursday mornings as well as “Arts and Crafts” and “Origami” classes after school.

Discounts are offered to families who book multiple classes, so it is possible for students to spend an afternoon taking enriching classes and be picked up at 5 or 6pm. Sibling discounts are also available. Families interested in private lessons can receive discounts for scheduling in advance. MAPS will hold an open house on August 23rd and 24th - for more information or to RSVP, please visit https://malden.mapflc.com/events/. For more information including pricing, discounts and hours of operation, please visit www.maldenlearning.com, email info@maldenlearning.com or call 781-605-3711.
