It's Italian month in our studio!

Keep practicing your Italian music notations  (see flier) because we will be having our Italian contest in class the week May 13-17. It’s a competition to see who knows the most Italian music notation flashcards in one minute, and the prize? Pizza, of course! Vocalists are singing in Italian this month a beautiful opera aria by Puccini- reminder practice is just to listen and stretch your throat along to the words. Playlist here: May voice lessons 



We're starting our Ode to Joy duet unit this week. I'll be sending home sheet music at your child’s level for Ode to Joy. Advanced students will be creating their own accompaniment with lead sheet chords. Vocalists are invited to write their own lyrics and perform. It's a mystery duet, and maybe even a mystery trio, so make sure you’re practicing as you will be performing with another student. Class dates for June will be announced soon.



A quick reminder: I'll be going to Tokyo for my son's senior trip, so we've got two weeks of normal classes left before the break. No lessons May 18-June 9. (Refer to original semester calendar you signed in January) Then regular afternoon lessons the week of June 10th, but you are welcome to switch times or reschedule later in the summer if you have a conflict. That’s the last week of the regular semester, but I am available for prorated summer lessons throughout June and July. Fall semester begins with school in Aug. During the break rehearse your regular music assignments as well as preparing for the mystery duet. It’s also a great time to catch up on your piano theory books. Check in with me via text, follow along on my insta and FB and watch your mailbox for a postcard!


FREE summer lesson/ Makeup Week

Unfortunately, due to my husband‘s cancerous brain tumor. He’s had a change of employment and I’ll be taking on more of our families financial responsibilities. So it’s very important for me to know who will be returning in the fall so I can plan accordingly and fill empty spaces in my studio. 

Reserve your space in my studio for the fall semester by paying your Fall Studio Fee $150 per family by June 16. Cash, or apple cash or PayPal friends and family setting accepted. Include a note letting me know if you want to keep your current time, make a schedule change, add a lesson or sibling. 

If you wish to perform at the Cherry Fest or BMF, you MUST attend a lesson in June, and since BMF is a new opportunity you MUST also be registered for the fall semester.If your studio fee is paid in cash or apple cash by June 16th you’ll earn a FREE summer lesson redeemable any week of the summer including the mandatory BMF week for vocalists. If you wish to discontinue lessons, please let me know

I’ll also be offering makeup lessons the second and third week of June. Reminder makeup lessons are only given for lessons canceled 48 hr in advance.

Policy Review: If you are unable to attend a lesson for whatever reason please notify me (208-286-7989 or hollydransfield@yahoo.com) at least 48 hours in advance. With advance notice (min 48 hrs) I will arrange a makeup lesson, same day cancelations cannot be made up. 
If you choose to discontinue lessons please plan to give one months notice.
