A Note From Miss Kayla

We’ve made it! Congratulations to all of our young musicians for making it to the year-end recital! Don’t forget to RSVP to the Music Studio Party on May 6th, so we can all get together to meet one another, sing some karaoke, and celebrate all of the hard work that has gone into this year!

Our new season begins on July 15th, so make sure you register to save your spot, as we are opening registration to the public this month.

Before the summer, we will be talking in class about our musical goals for the new season! Think about what you want to achieve through your music lessons next year. Perhaps you’d like to register for Festival, or challenge yourself to take an RCM exam! For your next lesson after the recital, prepare a list of 3-5 musical goals and bring them into class. We will discuss your goals, and make a plan to achieve your goals!

This month, we have an exciting new addition to our music program! We are receiving a brand new piano for our music room! It is a beautiful, acoustic upright piano, and we are very excited to give our students the opportunity to play on a real instrument!

Important Dates:

April 30- May 4- No classes (recital week)

May 2- Music Recital

May 6- Music Studio Party

May 18-21- No Classes (May Long Weekend)

Musical Fun Fact:

There is a “sea organ” in Croatia that plays music like an organ when the waves crash in and out of it!

A Note From Miss Kayla and Miss Jillian

Happy March! Spring is so close, we can’t wait for the warm weather! Our recital is also growing closer, and we are already working hard on our performing pieces! We encourage you to practice performing for your friends and family, and by the time Recital rolls around, you’ll be a pro!

During the month of March, we are going to be concentrating on musical intention. This means telling a story with your music. Think about the pieces you are playing or singing, and think about how you want the audience to feel. What can you do to tell a story with your music? Perhaps it’s adding in some movement to your song, or really using dynamics (quiet and loud). We will be talking about it in class, so please share your ideas with your teacher!

This month we are also holding in-class parent-teacher meetings. During the week of March 12, please feel free to come in to your child’s first 10 minutes of class so we can meet, talk about this past year, and the exciting new program additions for next year! Please don’t hesitate to contact your teacher if you have any questions!

This Month at the Studio

March 12-16- In Class Parent-Teacher Interviews
March 30- April 5- STUDIO CLOSED (Spring Break)

Musical Fun Fact

The word “music” comes from The Muses, who were the goddesses of the arts in Greek Mythology. You can see them singing in the Disney movie Hercules!

A note from Miss Kayla and Miss Jillian

Happy February! We are so proud of all the hard work you’ve been doing since the holidays. We know it’s hard to get back into the swing of things!

Our Music Recital is approaching fast on May 2nd, and we will be choosing our pieces to perform during the first week of February. Remember to choose a piece that challenges you, and one that you truly enjoy and want to share with the audience!

Our new Music Classes for little ones, Tempo Tots (6 months- 2 years) and Melody Movers (3-4 years), started in the last week of January, and we still have spots open in both classes. If you want to come and learn the basics of music, movement, and sound exploration, come and join us for a free trial!
