IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT LESSONS
The big question for all parents and students to consider is:
Do you want to stay with the Same teacher in the Fall?
Do you want to keep climbing our Musical Ladder and keep your MLS Ranking?
If the answer is yes, there are 3 ways to do this:
- Take advantage of our summer make up lessons
We realize that some of you will go on vacation for a portion of the summer. By signing up for the summer
make ups, you can make up 4 of your lessons and keep the same teacher and spot for Fall.
It’s very easy to do:
Select the dates that you want to come for your make ups by texting, emailing or calling the office!
GET A HEAD START! You can start making up lessons for the summer in advance starting
2. Zoom your lessons from any location!
Students have the option to Zoom their lessons at ANY time from ANY location, no heads up necessary. All of our teachers are prepared for Zoom lessons at any time. This way, your lessons can come with you wherever, wherever your Summer takes you!
3. Sub lease your spot to a family or friend.
You can send a family member or friend in your place for the dates you will miss, just let the office know who is
coming in your place and when. Make sure that they reimburse you directly for the lessons.
If you are taking summer lessons and need a specific time for Fall, please contact me around late July and I will
do my best to accommodate you.
Each September, we get calls from students who have been with us for years, but withdrew for the summer.
They want to return to the same teacher, day and time, but the spot has been filled by another student or have to go on our waitlist!
Musical Ladder Accomplishments!
What is The Musical Ladder System®?
The Shore Music Academy inspires local music students to achieve more with the Musical Ladder System® Practice.
It's not the most fun word ever created and it's definitely not a favorite activity of music students.
But the Shore Music Academy has helped to solve that age old problem by being the first school at the Jersey Shore to license the Musical Ladder System®.
The music teaching system is being used by music schools across the US and Canada to inspire music students to practice more and enhance their love for music.Similar to karate belt tests,
every 90 days or so students have a test with their private music instructor. When they pass they receive really cool color wristbands with the name of the level they passed. T
hey also receive a certificate and at some levels a trophy.
The Musical Ladder System® has also been a big hit with local music students and their parents as evidenced by the Shore Music Academy Facebook page
which showcases pictures of the students when they pass their achievement tests.
This is a proven system that helps students get excited about music and helps keep parents informed as to how they are doing.
All of your wristbands, trophies, certificates and online account are all FREE and part of your tuition.
We're working hard to give you more so please send us your feedback on the system, and it's time to start climbing the Musical Ladder!
