Open Enrollment 2021-22

Tuesday, August 24, 2021 | Announcement

Hello Studio Family!

I hope your summer has been one of adventure or perhaps even reconnecting.  I was fortunate enough to do some family camping on Orcas Island and just returned from a road trip down the spectacular Oregon Coast. I am looking forward to reconnecting with all of you and happy to announce that the studio's Enrollment Period is now open! In order to schedule lessons beginning next month, please review the linked policy documents (studio policy, calendar and tuition plans) and complete the online enrollment form using the link below.

Policy Changes/Highlights

  • FiddleQuest for all! - The studio is assuming the subscription of all my student's accounts and will make FiddleQuest available to all my students.  As such, I will be charging an annual $75 registration fee (half of annual FiddleQuest subscription). If you'd like you can pay this fee as soon as your current subscription is scheduled to run out (just reach out and let me know when that is).
  • 3+1 Group Week  - I am introducing a new teaching model that supports my core teaching values of social playing and creative expression while being a more effective teacher to your students. For each month, I am offering 3 weeks of individual 1:1 lessons. Then once a month host a "Group Week" which will provide all students with multiple group session opportunities via Zoom. All sessions will be recorded for review. Students will have opportunity for individual feedback during these group classes.
  • In-Person/Zoom Lesson option - At the moment, I continue to welcome students back into the studio. Outdoor lessons will be offered until weather necessitates moving indoors. I will continue to review local and industry guidance regarding masks and update my protocols accordingly. Zoom lessons are always available as an option. More on this will be shared as we approach the first week of lessons in September.
  • Virtual Open House - THURSDAY at 4:30 pm. I plan to discuss studio changes along with other exciting announcements during my Open House this coming Thursday 8/26 at 4:30 pm (program to begin at 5pm).  Please plan on joining us via zoom using this link. Come with any questions and feedback you might have. Also, I'll be inviting FiddleQuest founder, Duane Whitcomb to join me for some Q&A about what's going on in the FiddleQuest community.
Please use the link below to view and fill out the enrollment form for the 2021-22 Primary Session. The enrollment form has 3 sections: 1) Scheduling 2) Policy confirmations and 3) Survey. The entire form should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete.

You will be able to select up to 3 options for lessons times. There is also space to add additional comments for consideration. The first week of lessons begins the week of Sept 13.

If you are no longer interested in continuing lessons, please respond to let me know your intentions for the coming year.

I look forward to starting the new school year and continuing to make music together!
