I wanted to touch base and give you an update on the schools.
We thank you all for your feedback! We’ve enjoyed doing these updates. We find it’s a great tool to communicate with you and give you the latest news.
SHOUT OUTS AND THANK YOUS
First of all I want to give you a few shout outs and thank yous.
Number one to our students. Thank you, thank you, thank you students for being with us during this very difficult time. Gene Simmons from Kiss has always said without the fans Kiss is nothing and I have always said without the students here we are nothing. So again thank you, students and parents of students!
It’s been a difficult year as you all know. But we’re getting through it just fine and we’re doing lessons in person and online.
I also want to give a big shout out to all of our teachers. They’ve been working very hard. They’ve all pivoted and adjusted. They’re doing awesome work (just A-plus work teaching) lessons in person and online. So thank you teachers for all that you do!
And our office team and management is working tirelessly 7 days a week, morning until night. So thank you office team for doing an excellent job|! I really appreciate you all and I know from our surveys that we just sent out that our clients do as well.
So let’s talk about the status of the school's enrollment. Thank you so much for your referrals. Our enrollment is going up. But we really appreciate your referrals. Please keep them coming!
MORE ABOUT THE REFERRAL PROGRAM
If you refer a student to us, we will send you a $25 dollar gift card to Amazon or Target. If you have any questions please let the office know. But, thank you and a big welcome to all of our new students.
We’re seeing a lot of students return for either in person or online lessons or some are doing both. Some are coming sometimes in person, sometimes online. It’s your choice and even before the pandemic that is the way we’ve conducted business. It is the way we will always conduct business. You choose as the student whether you want to come in person or online, or a mix.
I also want to welcome all of our new teachers. We’ve had over 10 new teachers in the past few weeks apply and be brought on board. We’re very excited to work with them. They’re very excited to be here. It's vital for the school that we keep working with talented new teachers that are rearing to go and have fun giving lessons.
SAFETY PROTOCOL VIDEO
If you’re new to us as a new student (or a new parent, teacher, etc), please check out the link below.
It is a link to our safety video and it shows all the protocols, all the equipment, everything we’re doing to keep everyone here safe. It’s just 2 minutes but it's very important information we want you to check out so we’re all on the same page.
LET'S TALK ABOUT THE MUSICAL LADDER®
The Musical Ladder System® is still all systems go. We’re still awarding wrist bands, trophies and more. We’re very excited that the Musical Ladder System was just awarded 9 patents for the system. We’re EXTREMELY excited about that, more information coming.
But if you have questions about your wrist band, trophy or test, or would like to arrange a curbside pick up of your trophy, please let our office team know and they will be happy to assist you. The Musical Ladder System® is growing worldwide and for our students it’s all included for free.
EARLY AND WEEKEND LESSON TIMES!
For those of you who don't know we offer early lesson times! We offer lessons as 9 AM, as late as 8 30 PM. So if you’re on a hybrid schedule, flex schedule, whatever kind of schedule and you want to come in the morning, you would like to come at lunch, we've got you covered. Contact the office for available times. Please let your friends know as well!
But if you’re looking for morning, lunch times, unusual times, if you want to come in on a Saturday or Sunday, (which Sunday is actually a very popular day here), just let us know. We’d love to talk to you about options for your lesson.
Also a BIG THANK YOU to everybody that gave us a Google review. All schools combined we now have almost one hundred, five star Google reviews.
Here’s to a great year of making music, in person or online (your choice) at the Harrison School of Music and New City School of Music.
