This is the new Academy of Sound newsletter! This is where we will publish our favorite stories, updates, and events, and introduce our Featured Students.
Charlotte is a piano student of Mark Wurzelbacher, who says: "Although I have only had three lessons with her so far, I can tell that Charlotte has a real enthusiasm for learning. It has been a real pleasure getting to know her."
This year, Academy of Sound welcomes violin & viola teacher Beth Larson, who graduated with a degree from UW-Madison and has lots of experience teaching musicians of all ages. Her summer class, Intro to Music & Rhythm, was a big hit. Beth teaches on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Visit our registration page to learn about her current openings.
We are also excited that pianist Mark Wurzelbacher has joined our team. Mark attended UW-Madison as well as the University of Notre Dame. He is active in Madison-area musical theatre. Mark teaches on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Visit our registration page to learn about his current openings.
Absences - Your Call!
As we announced in an e-mail earlier this month, absences are now under your control. Each student is able to make up 1 lesson per semester, no matter the absence reason. So families can decide!
- Absences must still be reported before 12pm (noon) on the lesson day in order to qualify for a makeup lesson offer.
- Call 608-371-9030 or write to firstname.lastname@example.org to report absences and request makeup lessons.
- Be sure to request the makeup at the time the absence is reported. We will keep track in case you forget whether you've used your one absence per semester.
TIP: Always contact the AOS office (instead of private teachers) with scheduling questions and updates.
