Basic - Standard - Enhanced Courses

* $265.00 - $399.00 | Cancellation Policy

Effective quick start options for students ages 10 through adult. To provide more individualized attention, we’re happy to announce smaller class sizes and more class options! Our 2, 4 and 5 session options are suitable for beginners as well as experienced keyboarders. The standard Qwerty keyboard layout is regularly taught during our scheduled classes. Alternative layouts, such as the Dvorak keyboard or single-handed layouts are taught by special arrangement. Materials are included with all classes. As with any new skill, practice is required. Allot adequate time outside of class for assignment completion (varies by student). 

During the first session, students learn the entire keyboard lettering by touch and begin applying their new skill. Students are taught the equivalent of a conventional classroom keyboarding program in less than a semester’s time. The most powerful results stem from correctly applying this new skill on a regular daily basis. Practice with our materials yield the fastest results. Pick the option that best meets the learning experience you wish to have. Choose Basic, Standard, or Enhanced Course option—whichever is the best fit for your keyboarding goals!

Self-starters Course

* $350.00 - $365.00 | Cancellation Policy

Paced for busy adults and older teens who are task-oriented self-starters, highly motivated, and require less in-class training. It is not suitable for students younger than 14, unless stated otherwise. It’s ideal for those who are short on time, but disciplined and committed to following through on their own. The standard Qwerty keyboard is regularly taught. Alternative layouts, such as the Dvorak keyboard or single-handed layouts are taught by special arrangement. Regardless of layout, be sure to allot adequate time outside of class for assignment completion with our class materials, which are provided in class; time required varies by student.

This 3-day course is primarily offered four times per year over holiday weekends: MLK Holiday Weekend (January), Memorial Day Weekend (May), Labor Day Weekend (September; Basics for Back-to-School for ages 10 and up), and Veterans Day Weekend (November). Session lengths vary. See calendar/schedule. Occasionally, other dates may be added.

Course covers finger paths for letters, capitalization, punctuation, and horizontal numbers. The focus is on building muscle memory and proficiency with a focus on building good ergonomic habits. Exercises for speed and accuracy will be added as class progresses and time allows. Participants will receive a dexterity assessment and personalized goal-setting. Increased speed comes naturally when practicing with our materials and following our methodology. As with any new skill, practice outside of class is required. Those who see the most powerful results, immediately begin using this new skill correctly and frequently on a daily basis and commit to practice with our materials for at least 30 minutes per day.

Just for 9’s!

* $365.00 | Cancellation Policy

Just for 9’s! This 10 hour class is perfect for 9 year olds finishing 3rd grade or currently in 4th grade. Those who are cognitively 9 years old or have cognitive learning disabilities may also benefit from this slower paced class. The standard Qwerty keyboard layout is regularly taught during our scheduled classes. Alternative layouts, such as the Dvorak keyboard or single-handed layouts are taught by special arrangement. Learning materials are provided. Time-on-task is especially important for younger students. This means practice in and out of class. Please prepare your child and allot adequate time outside of class for assignment completion; time required varies by student.

Consecutive one week classes are great for younger students — who need more time-on-task. Classes are generally 5 consecutive days at 2 hours per day. Cognitively, nine year olds process information differently and benefit from a slower paced class. This class may not be suitable for students younger than 9 or older than 10. It is paced specifically for nine year olds and will most likely be too fast for younger students and too slow for older ones. The class is based on our Standard Course and teaches the entire keyboard lettering by touch in a much shorter time than traditional programs. By class end, students will be given realistic personalized typing goals based on their individual dexterity and progress. Those who see the most powerful results tend to immediately start using their new skill, correctly and frequently, on a daily basis. As with any new skill, practice is required. Students are expected to continue practicing, with our materials, for at least 30 days after class. Deluxe KEYTIME® Skillbuilder Learning Kit included in cost.

Kids Academy: 1st through 3rd Grade

*$365.00 ages 7-9 | $265.00 ages 6-7 |

Give young children an early advantage! This class is for ages 7-9 in 2nd-3rd grade (younger ages by special arrangement). This class is not suitable for students going into 4th grade or above (please select an age appropriate class: Just for 9’s or Basic-Standard-Enhanced). Students begin forming good keyboarding habits during this course. Young students learn quickly in our Kids Academy with KEYbird© and TYPEDancing©! Choose from standard Qwerty keyboard layout or Dvorak (taught by special arrangement). Practice outside of class is important—please allot ample time for this. Amount needed will vary by student. The TYPEDancing© video can be viewed as much as is needed for proficiency (or as often as the student wishes). A DVD player is needed.

Ages 7-9 attend five 90 minute sessions. Initially, students learn with game cards and songs. Keyboards are gradually introduced based on the individual’s progress. Activities start with keyboards where letters are visible and move to keyboards with the letters covered—as the student’s ability increases. Students who progress rapidly, through the TYPEDancing for Kids© program, will be issued additional materials to continue their keyboarding journey. Practice, practice, practice! Students will need to practice at home. Please allow adequate time for this activity; varies by student. Practicing at least 30 minutes per day for a month will greatly improve their typing skills. This can be done in 10 or 15 minute increments.

Younger students, ages 6-7, learn to use all of their fingers to prevent developing bad habits. TYPEDancing for Kids©! is a fun way for young kids to learn. Students build dexterity while learning with songs and games on game cards. Keyboard activities are introduced based on individual progress. Classes are 5 sessions for an hour each. This class is scheduled as a 2 or 3 student Form Your Own group, if not on our schedule. At home practice will be done with the TYPEDancing© video and game cards. Consider at least 15 minutes of practice daily as a realistic goal.
