Many of our students receive regular lesson reminders either by text message or by e-mail. If you are currently not receiving these reminders and would like to, or would prefer to receive them by a method other than the way you get them now, please let us know and we will set you up with these automated reminders. They can be quite useful, especially if a day/time has been scheduled that is irregular (such as a make-up lesson).
spring recital - may 25
The Spring Recital is almost here, which means it's crunch time if you want to participate. All students are welcome and encouraged to sign up, but there is limited space. To sign up, you must either sign up online through the student portal, or talk to Steve directly (telling your teacher you want to be in it isn't enough). Please have the name of the piece that you want to perform ready to give when you sign up. No two students will be able to perform the same song on the same instrument in the same recital session.
To sign up through the student portal, go to https://www.smartslondon.com/student-portal.html and login using your e-mail address and password. Once logged in, click on the Calendar tab and scroll down until you find the recital date (May 25th). Click on your desired recital block and choose Register. Please note that the 7:00pm recital is for adults only.
There are 3 recital times available. 3:00pm and 5:00pm are for any student, but it is recommended for adults not to sign up for those times and sign up for the 7:00pm adult session instead. The location is 615 Baseline Rd. E at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Please try to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
Summer is almost here and with it could mean changing schedules, vacations, etc. We want everyone to know that we continue to operate through the summer months and strongly encourage our students to continue studying through the summer. Even if you will be going away for some of the summer, it is still recommended to do what you can because as the saying goes "if you don't use it, you lose it". While you won't lose everything, there is definitely a noticeable decline when students return in the fall, and it takes time for students to build up their skills again to the point before the summer started. Minimizing whatever break you take also minimizes that recovery time. We try to be extra flexible with scheduling in the summer considering the changes we know will happen. Unfortunately if you do stop for the summer, we cannot hold your spot for the fall since we continue to sign up new students year-round.
