WINTER RECITAL UPDATES

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2020 POSTPONED

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2020 POSTPONED

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2020 MORE VIRTUAL SPOTS AVAILABLE

Due to the recent orders from MDHHS, our recital performance venue, Wealthy Theatre, has alerted us that they will remain closed for the remainder of the year.

The good news:

  1. You can still sign up for a virtual recital spot on Sunday, December 13! There are still at least 50 spots available at 2, 3, 4, or 5 pm. These spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis; however, priority will be given to students who are no longer able to perform at Wealthy Theatre.
  2. We have tentatively rescheduled in-person recitals at Wealthy Theatre for January 30 and 31. Watch for updates as new information becomes available.

To register for one of the online recitals December 13th, please call or email the front desk.

We’re looking forward to seeing students perform online in December and in-person once again in the new year!

A NOTE FROM THE OWNER

As we wrap up the Thanksgiving weekend, I would like extend my sincere gratitude to the Academy School Director Matt Camp, our Office Team Members Julie and Diane, and each of the Academy teachers for their tireless energy and skills that have helped us meet the needs of all of our students and families throughout this year. They continue to adjust their way of working to best support you, our valued students and families, through ongoing challenges.

To our students and families, we understand how extraordinary these times are for you. Know that you can count on our continued commitment to you and your success. We are extremely honored to serve and partner with you today and in the future and wish you all the best in this holiday season. As always, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

As a special thank-you gift, we are giving away a FREE Academy ornament to our students and staff. Stop at the desk when we resume lessons in-person on December 9, or let us know if you would like us to mail the ornament to you.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

MEET TEMPIE!

Tempie has been a student at the Academy for 2 years, and currently takes voice lessons with Ms. Tanya. Outside of her music lessons, Tempie also enjoys dancing, playing with Barbies, and swimming. Some of her favorite foods are watermelon and cherries and one day she hopes to visit Walt Disney World. In school, Tempie’s favorite subject is Math, and the coolest thing she has learned at the Academy is how to become a better singer. Her favorite animals are Bambi and her dog Lily.
