Greetings Parents and Students! Please read all of this important information.
1) Africa Ensemble
Here is some more information about the rehearsals and performances regarding the upcoming group ensemble (see the January announcements for more information). If your child is interested and can definitely be involved, please fill out the form below and submit it. If you are interested but unsure if your child can be involved, please be sure to contact me and let me know.
Africa Ensemble Information
To be a part of the Africa Ensemble for the June recitals, you MUST be available for the following dates for rehearsals and performances:
REHEARSAL: Saturday, June 3rd – any time between 2pm and 8pm
REHEARSAL: Friday, June 9th – any time between 6pm and 8pm
PERFORMANCE: Saturday, June 10th – 4pm
PERFORMANCE: Sunday, June 11th – 4pm
These two main rehearsals will focus mainly on the entire ensemble rehearsing together. You may not be needed for the entire time, but we won’t really know what the schedule will be like until we’re closer to those dates and have an idea of how everyone is doing.
It’s also important that you are prepared to come to possible secondary rehearsals just for your section (just singers, or just percussion, etc). They may not be necessary but we won’t really know until we’re closer to June. They would occur sometime after June 3rd and before the 9th.
2) Following the Blog
In the top right section of this page, you will see an option to follow this blog. In following the blog, you will be automatically informed any time there is a new post.
3) Auto Billing
If your child takes home lessons, you may sign up for auto billing instead of paying by check. To set up auto billing for your account, please call or stop by the studio.
4) Online Student Assignments
MusicMadness247 now has a page for online versions of student’s assignments. Students can reach them by going to the blog and clicking on “Assignments” in the menu. From there they can click on their name and find everything they worked on in class. If you or your child is interested in this, please let me know and we’ll set it up in class.
5) Facebook Live Performances
The first Facebook Live performance will be on Saturday, February 18th at 1pm. If your child is interested in performing, please contact me ASAP. If your child is not involved please watch us live on the By Ear Musician Facebook page!
6) Group Class Update
We need three more students to start a class for 6-9 year olds. The class will be taking place on Wednesdays from 4-5pm. Please see the Post on group classes for more information here.
Have a great month!
