Director’s Message
Start the Year Off with Music
Welcome to Poway Adult School’s Winter Quarter!
This New Year could be just the right time to explore a new interest or rekindle
a dormant one — and in the process, create a new you. At Poway Adult
School, we aspire to offer an assortment of courses that will help you become
happier, healthier, more skilled and more successful.
Our winter catalog highlights all things music. Maybe you’d like to join our
wonderful Community Symphony, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this
year of presenting local talent in musical performances and concerts in North
County San Diego. Perhaps you’ve thought about picking up the guitar or
ukulele to entertain yourself and your friends and family.
While this catalog features our music classes, on the following pages you’ll
discover a multitude of different courses and possibilities to bring your
interests to a crescendo!
Perhaps you’d like to savor a cooking class or explore one of our many
business and career-minded courses.
On behalf of all of us at Poway Adult School, we wish you a happy, healthy
and prosperous New Year! We look forward to seeing you in class!
Warm regards,
Kathleen Porter
Executive Director
Bring music to your life this winter. See

long, lean muscles and a strong core! Do
not eat for two hours before class. Please

Have you ever considered owning
investment properties? Do you know you
can buy multiple cash-flowing investment
properties out-of-state for the price of
just one investment home in San Diego?
Live where you want, but invest where the
numbers make sense. There are many outof-state homes available to purchase for
bargain prices while interest rates are low
and positive cash flow is readily achievable.
This class will cover the keys to successful
out-of-state investing including: choosing
the right market, selecting the property,
running return on investment numbers,
tax and other benefits, building your team,
property management, financing and more.

Real Estate License Series
Real Estate Practice
A real estate license doesn’t come with
an operating manual, so this course
was created to talk about what it really
takes to succeed in the business. Real
Estate Practice discusses getting started,
marketing, time management, listings,
contracts, agency, disclosures, escrow,
finance, completing transactions, and
working with buyers and sellers. This is
the second course required to obtain a
California Real Estate License. Class fee
includes textbook, quizzes, final exam and
course certificate.
Start the new year in the right direction by
creating a collage of elements you would
like to see happen in your life. We’ll spend
time fashioning a board you can hang
up in your office or other special room
for inspiration. Time will be spent going
through words and images, putting the
pieces together and getting feedback from
other students. Bring magazines, scissors
and a glue stick with you to class.
