Theatre and Film
Established in 2021, the Thinktown Theatre and Film team helps students discover their inner creative talent through playwriting, screenwriting and film review writing. Our courses and products help student nurture their creative writing abilities by writing about or for the stage and screen. Throughout this process, we help students who may not have had much exposure to these subjects to develop an interest and passion, while also furthering their creative and critical thinking skills.
We are pleased to see that many of the students we have worked with are continuing to pursue their interests in arts and/or humanities at some of the world's top universities, including NYU, University of Rochester and more!

Founded in 2021, the ThinkTown Music Team is dedicated to providing students with a high level of international musical education, ranging from basic knowledge about music theory and fun facts in history, to advanced, conservatory-level education on classical music performance or electronic music composition. We aim to empower our students with musical backgrounds and interest with cutting-edge musical knowledge. We have a range of different products tailored to different needs. Our international competitions of classical music performance allow students to compete with young musicians around the world and have helped two students win chances to play in Carnegie Hall, New York. Our Music Producer program equip students with the fundamentals of musical composition and have assisted dozens of students with their first musical creation. Our music foundation courses provide students interested in future learnings of music the basics of musical analysis. We also help students along their way when they find subjects such as AP music theory, A-Level Music, and IB music challenging. Our belief is that no matter the student's choice of future major or career track, they should have access to professional music education as part of their complete educational experience, which will significantly enrich their understanding of music as an important subject of the humanites.
