During the month of February we will be doing some minor renovations that may result in lessons from a couple of rooms appearing louder out in the waiting room than normal. This renovation will hopefully allow for more scheduling flexibility and relief from the stuffy air in the studios. These renovations are not expected to interfere with the normal teaching of our regularly scheduled lessons and should be completed by the end of the month.
This winter has been especially difficult for us with maintaining our temperature here. First of all, I want to thank everyone for your patience and understanding regarding our temperature fluctuations. As some of you know, the way our building is designed puts the thermostat in the unit below ours, which makes adjusting the temperature difficult at best. In order to keep the studios a comfortable temperature for the students and teachers during their lessons, we unfortunately need to sacrifice a little heat in the waiting room for their comfort.
If that wasn't enough, we ask everyone to remove their boots and shoes before they climb the stairs whether they are wet or not. We appreciate very much that everyone has done this as it makes a big difference in maintaining the cleanliness and welcoming atmosphere we aim to have. Even when there is no snow on the ground, salt and sand accumulates quickly in the winter, and there's just not enough time to clean every day. So a very big thank you to everyone for helping to keep our school clean and comfortable. Feel free to bring a pair of slippers or indoor shoes when you come.
These sacrifices you make in order to take music lessons with us are a real testament to the level of dedication and desire you have to learn. It's fortunate that we have such amazing teaching staff to make these small sacrifices worth it. Thanks again for everything you all do for music.
