Summer Recitals, A New Make-up Option, and much more!
Saturday, August 15, 2020
We are excited to announce that the Cascade Township has given us permission to offer a summer recital on the library lawn. Here's what you need to know!
20x24' stage provided by the township
Recital times: 3 pm, 4pm, 5pm, & 6pm
20 performer maximum per recital (strictly followed)
Current crowd limit per executive order is 100, so performers must request tickets to help us comply (4 TICKET LIMIT). If that changes, we will adjust tickets accordingly. Performers will not need a ticket.
BYOB - Bring Your Own Blanket (or lawn chair). Each family should plan to maintain a safe distance from others.
We are now offering Video Lessons for students that are unable to attend their regularly scheduled lesson. Video Lessons will be recorded by your student's teacher during their regular lesson time and then uploaded to a private YouTube channel. Once The video lesson has been uploaded, you will receive a link to the video lesson. Please note that all video lesson links will not be instantly available, but will be emailed within 48 hours of the missed lesson. Video lessons will be 8-10 minutes in length and can contain multiple shorter videos for your convenience!
Students may request a video lesson up to 5 minutes prior to the start of their regularly scheduled lesson. Video lesson will NOT be available for missed lessons without advance notice.
Congratulations to everyone who continues reaching their musical goals and keeps climbing higher on the Musical Ladder!
Say hello to Payton!
Payton is a multi-instrumentalist that has been studying guitar at the Academy for two years. In addition to enjoying music from AC/DC, the Eagles, and Journey, she also has a passion for gymnastics, diving, dogs, hanging out with her friends, and spending time at the lake. Additionally, Payton's favorite food is peanut butter and her favorite animal is a polar bear. When asked where she would most like to travel Payton shared her interest in going to Churchill, Canada.
When it comes to her guitar lessons, Payton loves learning new soloing techniques. Her advice for other students is, "Put in the effort now and it will pay off later... but, have fun doing it!"
Payton will also be traveling to Cleveland, Ohio this September to perform at our destination recital at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
