End of Fall Newsletter

Sunday, November 25, 2018 by Rylin Erickson | Newsletters

Hi students!

Hope you have had a great Thanksgiving break! I look forward to seeing many of you at our big collaboration show with choirs, dancers, and marimbas next *Sunday, Dec 2nd* at 6:30pm in the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center's main hall! The performers have been working hard to put together an unforgettable show. Get your tickets here!

As we approach the end of our session (only three weeks left!?!), I highly recommend checking out the app Note Rush -- a perfect way to practice reading! Flexible difficulty, adjustable for different levels and instruments, and super fun. I can even create (and send to you) levels tailor-made for each student! This is an excellent way to keep practice enthusiasm high during our winter break.

Speaking of winter break, we'd love to see you at Winter Solstice Caroling Friday, December 21st at 4pm! Meet at 2028 Creekside Rd and go singing around the neighborhood. Song lists will be provided and all ages are welcome. Bring friends and family!

Are you planning to continue in the spring? If you have not yet registered, I recommend doing so by Nov 30th to reserve your spot before open enrollment begins.

Everyone who has enrolled, check out your new student portal, accessible from our new Uncaged Musicians site! This amazing feature will be replacing Google classroom as our host for practice notes and studio communication and will also will be the place to get general info, check the schedule, sign up for makeups, and more. If you need any help logging in, let me know!

Thank you for a wonderful fall of music making! Best wishes for a musical holiday season.
