Hi Piano Families!
Here is the information on fall enrollment. The process has been simplified!
For rate explanation, go here: Piano Tuition
For studio policies (slight changes only) go here, and look at the four headings: Studio Policies
For the early bird discount, go to: Encore Studio Home
From there, login, go to on the calendar, and sign up. You MUST sign up BEFORE the 5th; the deadline is really . My website won't allow you to sign up ON the 5th. In addition, your payment must be received by the end of June to receive the discount.
If you miss the early bird, you can still sign up on the calendar on (again the actual deadline is ), and you can still save the registration fee if you pay the full semester or 1st month on or before .
Additional information: Depending on our teacher situation, the studio size may be smaller in 2017-18. Miss Maryn will only be available to substitute on rare ocassions. Mr. Anson is planning to teach again, and will also be available to substitute. It's possible another teacher may join us as well. Of course, all current students will have a spot (if you sign up!).
For new students, the plan is to accommodate siblings in current families before other new students, but if you don't sign up for summer or fall, I won't know to reserve a spot for you. There MAY be an additional opportunity to sign up on , but don't count on it! If you are a new family looking for lessons, it would be helpful if you create your login for the website. This automatically places you on the waiting list, and you will be contacted soon!

What is Extravaganza? It's a super opportunity for students (with at least one year of lessons) to perform in a fun activity! It's held at Nebraska Wesleyan University January 7th and 8th. Approximately 15 digital pianos are placed on stage, and with TWO students per piano, each group has about 30 performers.
We will work in the studio to prepare duets, and then your group will come together to practice on January 7th. The performance will be in the afternoon on January 8th. If you participate, the January 7th rehearsal is absolutely mandatory, and you must set aside the day until we know a specific practice time.
Please email, text, or call Mrs. Heald with any questions. It is hoped that nearly all eligible students will participate!
