Thanks to everyone who participated in our Spring Recital! It certainly wasn't what we're used to with our live recitals, but we were very pleased with how it turned out for the circumstances. We had great feedback that people enjoyed working on their performance pieces, and making their videos, and seing what other students are working on. We hope to see even more people involved in our Winter Recital, whether it's virtual or live!
Returning to in-person lessons
As Ontario has recently entered Stage 2 of re-opening, it should be only a few more weeks before we enter Stage 3 and SMArts is able to open it's doors again for in-person lessons. The suggested date that is expected to happen is July 21, though we will have to wait and see for the official announcement from the Ontario Government. We look forward to seeing all of your faces again, and getting back to somewhat normal. And though we will still need to wear our masks for now, we encourage everyone who is comfortable to return to in-person lessons as soon as possible. The one-on-one, hands-on instruction is invaluable to your learning progress! However, we will, of course, continue to provide online lessons to those who feel more comfortable with that option.

Thank you to all of you for continuing to support us during this difficult year.

We'd like to remind you, as we exit our (hopefully) final lockdown, of our referral bonus!
