Music Lessons Update July 2022
Hello there Academy of Music families! My name is James and I’m the director for the Oakville Academy of Music, as well as Burlington Academy of Music, the Academy of Music in Georgetown, and the Brampton School of Music. I’m here with a quick video update to share some information and to let you know what’s happening with the schools this summer.
It has been a wonderful summer so far and we have seen 106 new students registered to start in the summertime, which many of them will continue into the fall. I’d like to take a moment to welcome all of the new students. We’re so happy you’re here and we appreciate your support!
Recitals are on August 7th in Oakville and August 14th in Georgetown. These are both on Sundays. We will have an outdoor recital and student appreciation day at both Locations. So, Burlington and Oakville families, all families can come to any of them it’s fine. We’ll have that in Oakville. and for the Georgetown and Brampton families we would love to have you in the Georgetown recital. I will be on hand to cook hamburgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers for those that would like that. And then of course we have the recital where you can perform. We will have a bouncy castle and some water games and you know, basically, fun had by all! It’s our way of enjoying your music and saying thank you for being a student with us! If you don’t perform in that recital that day we still want you to come by and have some lunch and chat with the teachers and other families and such. It’s basically just a “thank you” okay?
Our referral draws and practice challenge draw. A couple of times a year we host a grand prize draw for all the families that referred other students to us as well as the practice challenge winners. So, for referrals, when you refer a family to us, and they register for lessons not only do we send each family a $25 amazon gift card as a thank you, but we also enter you into the grand prize draw. We were going to do Canada’s Wonderland season passes but it’s late in the season and I thought that it might not have enough value to give season passes away this late in the game. Instead, what we’re doing is we’re going to give away a $500 Visa gift card so you can spend it on anything you want. The other folks that are being entered into this prize draw are the Practice Challenge. So, all the students that conquered their practice challenge, the 150 days of practice in a six-month frame or within six months also get entered. They receive a medal and a certificate and of course the buttons to go with all of their levels leading up to that, and an entry into the prize draw. We’re very excited! I believe in this newsletter the prize draw will be done from our General Manager Tanya and we’ll announce the winners at that point.
We have been running our Brampton studio since July 1st. We took over officially then and we’re super excited to announce that we will be launching the Musical Ladder System at our Brampton location on august 1st! We’re all very excited about that! I think I got everything on the reader’s choice. did I mention the reader’s choice? Maybe I didn’t! Well, I will again.
The Reader’s Choice for the Oakville Beaver; for our Oakville Academy of Music we have been nominated for “best of” again this year. We’re going to send it an email and perhaps a text and we will have a link directly in this newsletter for you to click on and vote for us. We have won the reader’s choice award seven years in a row and we would love to see that happen again and that comes from you. So, taking a couple of minutes to vote for us is very much appreciated.
I think that’s it for today. Have a wonderful day and again thank you so much for your support and I hope to see you all at the recitals and barbecue.
P.S. Oakville Academy of Music offers private music lessons for piano, guitar, voice, violin, drums, and ukulele. If you’re not a current student contact us today to learn more about our school!
