Sumer is i-goin’-out….

And fall is coming in (well, technically not until later in September, but when school starts, summer is over).

Exciting things happening…

  1. Moving to a tuition-based program to allow more flexibility for everyone.
  2. Eliminating 24 hour notice (or even 12 hour notice) if you’re in one of those packages! (Because the flu doesn’t always have the courtesy to hit the day before.)
  3. A new studio portal on the website which will include information only for studio members! Things like: vocal exercise sheets (in case you lost yours); a list of all students having lessons and their times (in case you need to switch with someone); and coming soon, a video library of vocal exercises.
  4. Two studio recitals and a cabaret show!

You might be asking, “But, Christine, how do I find out about all of these things?”

Everything regarding packages and policies was sent out on August 14, right before I left for Milwaukee.

What would also be great is if payment could be made by September 1 so that I can have everything on Acuity and ready to go before we start up on September 3. Payment (or arrangement of payment) guarantees your spot in the stuio. I’m limiting the number of people I’m taking this year in order to provide the best service I can to you with my performing schedule, so if you’ve indicated that you are continuing in the fall, please confirm. If you have changed your mind, please let me know so that I can offer this opportunity to another interested singer!

Please go ahead and register for your preferred package here.

The title of this blog is based on “Sumer is icumen in,” the title of the medieval English round that my husband once taught a bunch of drunk kids on a bus in Ocean City while he was in medical school – and which we sing at our Renaissance parties. I don’t know if there’s an end of summer version, but maybe someone creative can write one.

Enjoy the song – maybe we can do it on our end of the season studio showcase. 😀
