It's Halloween party time!

I will be having Halloween piano costume parties on Oct. 27th and 28th for my students ages 12 and under. These parties will be fun, and students will have a chance to hear each other's pieces, play games, and watch a spooky video. Please watch for your invitations and let me know your party choice, or you can sign up here.
Welcome back to music lessons Sept 2018
Thursday, September 6, 2018 by Roseanna Rudolph | Uncategorized
Dear students and parents:
I want to welcome everyone to what promises to be another good year learning music on the piano. A special welcome to my new students. We will have fun learning new pieces and I will invite the younger ones to attend the Halloween and Valentine parties.
Here is some important information that all students, especially new students, need to know.
DAYS ON WHICH LESSONS ARE GIVEN
This year there are 34 weeks of lessons from September 11 to May 31, and I am teaching Tuesdays to Fridays. The scheduled weeks off are a three week winter break at Christmas and the March break as usual. The complete instructional calendar is available under "More Information" on our web site at harmonyhouse.ca. Please have a look at this if you are ever in doubt as to when there are lessons.
Specific make-up times as well as other students' cancellations will be posted in the schedule. If you need to miss a weekly lesson due to illness, check for possible make-up times using the Parent/student Portal. When you cancel your lesson you will be able to select an available make-up time before your next regular lesson, and your change will be confirmed immediately. Alternatively, please email or call. If you know well in advance, or if you need to reschedule several lessons, please call or e-mail with as much notice as possible and I will find a make-up time.
Unfortunately I usually won't be able to make up lessons missed due to vacation trips.
STORM DAY MAKE-UPS
My studio is seldom closed due to storms. If you can make it to your lesson safely, please come. If not, I'll attempt to reschedule within a week afterwards. There are no specific storm day make-up days in the instructional calendar.
An optional feature of the Parent/student Portal is that you can keep track of your practice times and pieces being worked on. You can also send a note from the practice log if you need help with a particular piece.
STUDIO NEWS UPDATES
I will be posting news every couple of months, and more importantly, I will constantly be keeping in touch with all students and parents to advise of progress.
Our number one goal: to have all students enjoy their music!
Recitals, June make-up week, and Victoria Day weekend
Wednesday, May 16, 2018 by Roseanna Rudolph | Uncategorized
Dear parents and students,
Here is our May and June schedule
Victoria Day weekend:
Saturday May 19 - No Lessons
Sunday May 20 - students have been rescheduled from last Sunday
Monday May 21 - No Lessons (Statutory Holiday)
Sunday students have lessons as usual on May 20. If you will be away, please let me know and I will try to reschedule.
There is a change from the dates marked in the instructional calendar because Hanwell Days has shifted to June. I will have two recitals, both on Saturday June 16, at 1:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Please mark these on your calendar. Everyone is invited: family, friends, etc. and a form is available here to let us know which recital you would like to attend. Or you can log in to the parent/student portal and register! I will also be confirming with you personally.
June Make-up week
Our remaining scheduled make-up days are on the week of June 10. This is the week before the recitals and all students will be scheduled to come for a lesson as usual.
Please call or e-mail if you have any questions.
