Encore Music Studios Family,
We are all excited to be learning our Recital Music! Thank you teachers for being organized and entering the repertoire you've chosen in our Encore software! I still want you parents to enter the songs your children will be performing once the 2018 Spring Recitals Sign-up Page goes live. That way I'll be able to catch any mistakes more easily. Our Spring Recitals will take place Saturday, April 21st at The Church of the Master United Methodist Sanctuary on Otterbein Campus 24 N. Grove St. Westerville. You may choose either the 10:00 am or 11:30 am time once the Signup Page at our website goes online on April 2nd.
Some of you at the Westerville Studio may have noticed something new in the lobby. I have placed an iPad in a sturdy enclosure to be used by any of our Encore Family. It currently has almost 2 pages of Music App Games and will be cleaned every night. My hope is that this addition will not diminish interest in drawing and coloring on the children's table, but only provide another option. Also, I added new crayons for both the Dublin and Westerville lobbies.
We are now working with several music publishing companies including Hal Leonard, Neil Kyos, and Alfred, and can provide a wide range of music books for teachers to distribute to students as needed. Teachers, please let me know what music you need, and I will order it for you. This is an effort to both streamline the process for everybody and to make the music purchases legal according to state law. Consequently, Encore will be collecting sales tax now. Any music distributed by teachers using this method will be added to the student's account and can be paid at the same time as the monthly tuition to Encore Music Studios. Teachers, please record the Title of the music taken from our Library in Studio #6 in Westerville and the cost of the music on a sheet of paper next to the printer.
A special thanks to the excellent teachers who are a part of Encore Music Studios and for how they enrich the lives of their students. I continue to get fantastic feedback from parents and students about how happy they are to be working with all of you!
