Those of you with last names beginning with A through M will provide snacks. It can be fruit, veggies, non-messy treats, or bottled waters. I will have trays and tablecloths. Can I get a parent volunteer for setting up the table for the 2 p.m. recital and one for the 3 p.m. recital? I also need some heavy lifters to move tables and some other folks to direct traffic. This takes a team effort.

Those with an * behind your name will need to sign up for a time with the accompanists either on Friday evening or Saturday morning. I suggest that we do Friday evening at my studio. We can even figure out a dinner option that night!

 

 

PostHeaderIcon Welcome back: 2012-2013 Enrollment Begins Today!

August 7, 2012

I hope everyone has had a great summer. I WILL BEGIN TEACHING PRIVATE LESSONS ON AUGUST 20 (regardless of school calendars).  I can't wait to see everyone!

I have been working on the schedule for weeks, and have a tentative lessons calendar available here:
2012-2013 Private Lesson Schedule

Don't worry: it's a WORK IN PROGRESS. I am hoping to get all of the kinks worked out of it ASAP. Please be willing to trade to help other families work out schedule problems.

My studio solo and group recitals and class schedules are available here:
Solo and Group Recital Dates.
(This does not include SCHOOL performances or performances for Kerrville HCYO students.)

Contracts are ONLINE forms this year and are available here:
Britt Violin Studio Private Lesson Enrollment Form.
You will want to print it before you submit it.
There is a slight rate change for some of you. There are also now ensemble fees paid through FCO, our Fredericksburg non-profit.

If you are new to the studio, you will get a chance to try a few lessons before contracts are due online.

If you will not be continuing lessons this year, please let me know ASAP, so I can use your space to help others.

I know some of you may be hesitant about the contract, but it is just an agreement that lets me know you are committed to working hard in lessons. I only want students who are serious involved in lessons.
