Studio News - October 2017

In the Groove

I hope you are all settling into the rhythm of the new school year. I can definitely sense my students' renewed energy for their instrument. Beyond lessons, I've got exciting events and partnerships planned to keep your violinist energized throughout the year. Please read for more...

Studio Event Dates

As many students are progressing and learning more tunes, participating in jams will be even more enjoyable. Please save the following dates for our scheduled jams and performances.  In addition, I am partnering with other musicians and neighborhood teachers to keep growing this musical community. More on that later.  
  • Fall Studio Jam - Saturday, November 4th 1:30-3:00pm (Collaboratory)
  • Carolling in Columbia City - Sunday, December 10th
  • Winter Jam - Saturday February 3rd @1:30pm (Collaboratory)
  • Year-End Showcase - Saturday June 16th @4:30pm (Collaboratory)
 

Policy Quiz

Thanks to the returning families who responded and participated in the policy quiz last month. I wanted to clarify one part of my policy regarding rescheduling make-up lessons.  As catch-up weeks are built in opportunities to schedule make-up lessons, they are not the only time to do so. I will post regular time slots on the calendar or will convert any cancellations for make-up lessons. Please visit the calendar to see any upcoming availability or just send me an email to schedule any make-ups

Discovery Workshop Referrals

This past weekend marked the end of the Fall Discovery Workshop at the Collaboratory. We had a great time learning the position songs and all the music this instrument makes.  I will be hosting a workshop again in January.  If you refer a family to attend the workshop, I am happy to provide a referral credit toward tuition. 

Did You Know: Auto-Pay

Auto Pay will automatically pay emailed invoices. The system will charge the invoice total to the card on file. If you would like to save a card to file and/or enable the auto pay feature:

  1. Click "Settings" in the top-right corner.
  2. Select "My Preferences" from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click the green button that appears in the "Stored Payment Options" section.
  4. While entering your billing details, you will have the option to enable "Auto Pay”.
VIDEO OF THE MONTH:
Video performances have turned out to be a great way to watch our kids grow through music. And kids get excited about making them.  Beginning next month, I will be featuring a student video at the end of this monthly newsletter to highlight the progress of a student.

Studio News - September 2017

Welcome Back!

Between the high temps, a record rainless streak and a total eclipse, I’m guessing your summer was quite eventful.  Here’s hoping the transition back to school is seamless for your family. The first official week of lessons is on the horizon: lessons begin the week of September 11. The open enrollment period is underway. Please visit your online studio account to sign up for your regular time slot if you haven’t already. 

I'd like to make every effort to make sure these mailings are relevant and readable to all my families. Please take a moment to read through and let me know if there is anything you'd like to see.

Sign-up for the 1st Week

Policy Documents and Quiz

I will be sending the updated policy documents - studio policy, calendar and rates by email next week.  In lieu of an agreement form to be signed, I am asking all returning families to take a One-minute Policy Quiz. This will also include a media release form just so I know it's okay to share your kids photos and videos.

Lesson Protocol

In addition to the policy documents, I’ll also send out a new sheet which establishes lesson protocol. I published one a few years back but wanted to update with notes on hygiene, lesson transition and parent attendance. 

Did You Know: Update Contact Info

Contact information out of date? No problem, you can update this information in your "My Preferences" section.

  1. Click "Settings" in the top right corner and select “My Preferences” from the drop down menu.
  2. Under the “Personal Information” section, click the blue “Edit” icon.
  3. Make the necessary changes before clicking “Ok”.

First Week of Lessons - September 11-15

I will be sharing student videos throughout the year to celebrate and highlight a student's progress. Feel free to share any video of home practices and performances.
