 ANNOUNCEMENTS

July 29, 2021

Hello, Students and Families!

It's time to start planning for the new year.  I have sent current students an email that includes a schedule form and another email that includes my new policy for making up missed lessons.  You may also find the schedule form and the polices by clicking on the links above or by going to:
http://www.evehubbard.com/schedule-form---2021-2022.php
and
http://www.evehubbard.com/policies.php 

Please fill out the schedule form and return it to me via email by Aug. 16.  The fall semester will begin on Aug. 23.  

We are going to start the year with remote lessons.  I am making that choice because of a combination of things: the current trend of the pandemic, my small studio space, the number of families with whom I work, those under the age of 12 can't get a vaccine, and remote lessons have been productive.  It is not acceptable for me to participate in anything that might harm one of my students.  I will return to in-person lessons when children can get vaccinated and have time to achieve full immunity.  I hope it will happen soon!

One of the happy outcomes of this past year is that I haven't been sick with anything at all since Jan. of 2020! I usually catch something awful from my students every semester. Now that we all know how to use Zoom, there is no reason for us to share colds, let alone anything worse!  When I go back to the studio, I will have an internet connection so we may have remote lessons any time we need them.  There will still be times when we will need to reschedule lessons but we won't need to reschedule for things like minor illness or a car that's in the shop.



TO PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS:

Yes, I'm continuing to teach remotely a little longer but I want to assure you that ONLINE INSTRUCTION HAS GONE VERY WELL! There have been some good things happening as a result of remote violin lessons.  I am glad to be able to report that every single student has made progress!  Even some of our most casual practicers have been working more productively. (What?) It seems that all of the parents are becoming even better home-teachers.  Dr. Suzuki would be very impressed with them!  I know that I am!  And another good thing is our health--ONLY TWO STUDENTS HAVE CANCELLED A LESSON FOR ILLNESS SINCE MARCH of 2020!  I haven't been sick since the previous January. I don't think I've every gone so long without a cold!  Plus, my students have been using a subscription service called Smartmusic.(The cost is now included in the activity fee.) With Smartmusic, they can practice at any tempo with an accompaniment and the program will assess their intonation and their rhythm...it's like playing a video game while you practice! 

I encourage you to join us remotely.  

We hope to be back in-person before many more weeks have passed.

--Some of the headings, above, have several articles attached to them.  When you click on the heading, the "drop-down" menu appears as a new line of text below the top section.

--Students from other studios may join our group lessons.  Please email Eve at evesviolin@aol.com to let her know you plan to attend.  The fall and spring fee is $80 a semester for the first student in a family and $65 a semester for each additional student. The summer fee is $55 for the first student in a family and $50 for each additional student. The activity fee is included in these charges.  Please make your check out to the person who teaches your group.  For the summer groups, that person is Eve Hubbard.  

--EVE HAS A LITTLE ROOM IN HER SCHEDULE FOR NEW STUDENTS.  New students may begin instruction at any time.  If you wish to be added to her individual lesson schedule, please read "Before Lessons Start" by clicking in the menu, above.  When you're ready, submit the schedule form (under "Enrollment Forms") via email.  Feel free to call with any questions. 

--VIOLIN AND BOWS FOR SALE: I have in my possession several small violins, a fine bow and a couple of full-size student bows that I'm trying to sell for a friend.  For more info, click above on "Violins and Bows for Sale".
