Next week…

We will play pieces from the group 3 list this week. Mrs. Judy will accompany our class- be ready to play!

After group, please prepare group 4 pieces for next week.

Also, here is your heads up regarding a change in the registration process starting with summer quarter:

  I will no longer email registration forms, they will become available on the studio website under the “Current families” section when registration opens. Reminders regarding registration will be posted in the news section of the website and in the studio.

Remember, registration occurs for each quarter. You’ll need to complete a registration form to be placed on the schedule.

The registration period will continue to open one month before the new quarter begins. However, registration forms  are now due one week before tuition payments are due. The upcoming lesson schedule will be announced the day after registration forms are due. Due dates may vary slightly, depending on how the calendar works out. I have posted exact dates on the studio calendar and forms. As always, regardless of the due date, checks will be deposited on the 15th of the month. For example, if checks are due on the 14th because the 15th falls on a Friday (I’m not in the studio Friday-Sunday) the check will still be deposited on the 15th, not the 14th. Here is a general example of the schedule for summer quarter registration:

  • Wed. May 1st: Registration form available on the website.
  • Tues. May 7th: Registration forms due by 8 pm. 
  • Wed. May 8th: Summer schedule announced/posted. 
  • Tues. May 14th: Tuition payments due by 8 pm. 
  • Wed. May 15th: Checks deposited. 

If a registration form is submitted, but payment is not received by the due date; I will email an invoice that can be paid electronically through Square. There is a 2.9% plus 30 cent transaction fee. You’ll need to make a payment by 8 pm on the 15th to stay on the roster. 


Next week…

Please prepare the group 3 list for our next group class. You’ll notice the new look of our review chart.

I’m also very excited to announce that beginning April 3rd, Mrs. Judy will accompany our group classes once per month. I’m grateful for this opportunity; it will help students grow musically. To help cover the costs of Mrs. Judy’s services, there will be a small tuition increase beginning with summer quarter.

Mrs. Judy will also attend group class on May 8th to accompany you for your spring projects!

Last, when Mrs. Judy is at the studio for group class, she and I will be available before/after group class for anyone that needs to rehearse solo material for upcoming performances. Our rehearsals fees can be found here.


Next week…

Bring rainbow rhythm packets to your individual lessons.

The calendar for the 2019-2020 studio year (Sept. 2019- August 2020) has been posted (minus performance dates which are still in the process of being scheduled). I will offer two additional individual lessons as compaired to previous years. Group classes will meet on the first and third Wednesday evenings of each month; with the exception of January 2020. January 1st falls on a Wednesday, we will meet on the second and forth weeks instead.


Next week…

Please prepare group 1 from the group repertoire list.

Bring your rainbow rhythm packets to both your individual lessons and group class for the whole spring quarter. You can find a complete list of items we are trying to master here. Friends who can write all rhythms correctly in 25 seconds or less can become checkers. Let me know if you’d like to try to qualify as a checker in you individual lesson.

Let me know what your “spring project piece” is at your next lesson.
