Joy to the World recap & things to know for December!

Monday, November 27, 2017 by Alison Stevens | Uncategorized

SMS Parents & families - 

THANK YOU for such a great night!  Each and every student performed beautifully.  We know that room had the potential to be intimidating, and they took it in stride.  We are SO proud of all of our kids!  

Wrapping up our music night:

* If your student was issued a book from our lending library for Joy to the World music night, please make sure they return it this week

* We would appreciate your tagging any pictures posted with #smsjoytotheworld and tagging our Facebook page, Stevens' Music Studio.  

* We would love to use pictures you have on our Facebook page and website.  Any pictures you would like to send us to be used that way are welcomed!

* We always want to improve and do what's best for your students.  Be on the lookout for a music night feedback survey in your inboxes.

A few housekeeping items as we head in to December: 

* Makeups for December: Can you believe Christmas is less than a month away??  Holy cow.  We know we are all busy, and things will come up.  For this reason, we want to remind everyone of our makeup policy:  We offer one makeup per month with a 24 hour notice of lesson cancellation.  And, for December, any makeup requests from this point forward will be scheduled for January (if you have already let us know you'll be out as of this email, we will get it in before we break for Christmas).

* We are 'closed' Friday, December 22 - Wednesday, January 3rd.  We will resume lessons Thursday, January 4.

Thank you again - we'll see you all at lessons!
