Dear parents, please take a moment to read these important announcements. Having so many students can make it difficult to get info out to every parent just through conversations, so these monthly announcements ensure I’ve reached everyone. Thank you!
- Facebook Live – March 18th and April 15th, 1pm
If your child is interested in performing, please speak with me as soon as possible. Also, if your child is not performing, please join us online at www.facebook.com/thebyearmusician to watch the live performances!
- Request for Testimonials
Testimonies from our students help us grow. If you have a few minutes, any positive feedback that you could provide would be very much appreciated! They can be in written or video format. The testimonials will go up on the blog, the TBEM facebook page and website, and on a music teacher directory I have a profile on (MakingMusicFun.net). Students can also provide feedback if they would like to!
- Printable Resources available, $1 each
For students needing resources printed from the blog, I am now able to print out the free printables and give them out at their lesson for a fee of $1 per resource item (covers time, paper, ink). For large documents such as the Classical Guitar Method Book, $1 will cover five pages.
- Concert Events Added
The events page on the blog now has some new events, all of which are free. They include a piano recital, steel drum band, and wind symphony. TBEM will be attending the piano recital, given by concert pianist Michael Lewin, on Monday, March 20th at 7:30pm. Please let me know if you and your family are interested in joining us!
- Public School Spring Break
Please note that TBEM will NOT be closed for the week of Spring Break (March 20-24).
- 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.
