December News

Hello everyone! Welcome to the snowy holiday month of December! I hope everyone is staying warm, dry and safe on the roads with all of the snow we’ve been having. Here are some important reminders for this month and looking forward to our 2022 Spring Semester!!

Virtual Winter Holiday Recital: We are on to the second recital of the school year! Videos for the Virtual Winter Holiday Recital need to be submitted to me by Wednesday December 22nd at 5:00pm. The link will be sent out that evening for everyone to enjoy our holiday music!!

Winter Break: There will be NO LESSONS during Winter Break, from Thursday December 23rd through Saturday January 8th. The 2022 Spring Semester will start with Sunday January 9th with the same schedule as this fall, please let me know as soon as possible if you/your student will need a different lesson day/time for the spring. I can’t guarantee changes but I will do my best to accommodate everyone’s scheduling needs!

Covid-19 Update: I have been fully vaccinated (plus booster!) and am open for in-person voice lessons on a limited basis. In-person voice lessons will only be given to students who have also been full vaccinated, vaccination cards must be provided on both sides if needed. Piano lessons will continue to be offered in-person and voice lessons for unvaccinated people will remain online. I am in direct contact with the lead Infection Preventionist at Bartlett Regional Hospital to ensure that we take every precaution and that the studio is safe for all who have in-person lessons. 

MASKS: Our current Juneau Covid numbers are declining (YAY!), but CBJ still has us in the HIGH risk category. ALL STUDENTS, REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS AND INSTRUMENT, MUST WEAR A MASK DURING LESSONS. I will be staying on top of the city regulations and will keep everyone updated with any changes.

Tuition Payment Reminder: Tuition payments are due at the first lesson of every month with a grace period until the 10th of the month. If tuition is received after the 10th of the month, a $25.00 late fee will be assessed. Please drop off physical payments with your student at lesson, send in the mail or you can drop it off any time in the secure white drop box attached to the mailbox post. Please do not come up to the studio to drop off payment if it is not your student’s lesson time, and please do not come up to the main house for any reason. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

New Students: We have extremely limited openings for new students for the 2022 Spring Semester, and I do have also a wait list started for the Spring. Please contact us at or (907) 500-7455 for more information.
