How will the Summer of 2021 work?

Each Spring we are often asked:

Q. “How do lessons work in the Summer?”
A. Many parents are looking for summer activities for their children. We‘re glad to announce that the school is open year-round, and we do not close during the summer!

Q. “How full is the school?”
A. As of today we are at approximately 90% capacity, and many teachers are sold out between the hours of 3:30 – 8 p.m.

Q. “If we withdraw for the Summer, can we continue right where we left off in Autumn?”
A. Lessons are first come first serve, so if you withdraw for the Summer, we cannot guarantee that we will have a spot for you in the Autumn as we will open the spot to new students. As well, your progress on the Musical Ladder will be reset to the beginning.

The big question for all parents and students to consider is:
Do you want to stay with the same teacher in the Autumn?
If the answer is YES there are 3 ways to do this:

1. Take advantage of our group make up lessons
We realize that some of you will go on vacation for a portion of the Summer. By signing up for the group make-up classes, you can make up all of your missing classes without having to withdraw from the school.

It’s very easy to do!
Sign up for a group make-up lesson at a time convenient for you by speaking with someone at the front desk. If you don’t know when you want your make-up lesson to be yet, don’t worry! Our group make-up classes do not expire, nor do they have any limit. GET A HEAD START: You can start making up lessons for the Summer in advance at any time.

2. You can offer your spot to a family member or friend.
You can send family members or friends to your place for the dates you will miss. Just let the office know who is coming in your place and when so that we can let the teachers know ahead of time. Each September, we get calls from students who have been with us for years but withdrew for the Summer. They want to return to the same teacher, day, and time, but the spot has been filled by another student.

3. Take ZOOM lessons.

It is super easy these days to keep your classes going no matter where you are.  If you are planning to travel overseas, Online lessons are a great option to get your classes going. We offered it before and we’ll continue to offer it to accommodate you while you are away.

If you LOVE your teacher, keep your spot by using the make-up classes, lend your spot to a friend or take online lessons!

Musical Ladder Achievements

The New Practice Challenge Program

The new practice challenge program is live! We know how much our students love to earn awards and how much we all love to see the students practicing, so we are excited to launch a new series of Practice Challenge wristbands!

Students will still be able to earn their regular Musical Ladder wristbands, such as Apprentice, Songbird, etc. – Think of these levels as Extra Credit!

Certain wristbands can only be earned during certain times of the year, but there will be multiple opportunities to earn the wristbands.

As an added incentive, anyone who earns all SIX of the 2021 Practice Challenge wristbands will be eligible to receive the 2021 Practice Trophy at the end of the year!

More information on the Practice Challenge Program can be found HERE
