Calendar items for this year

Friday, October 11, 2019 by Colleen Branson | Uncategorized

An announcement of three upcoming dates in 2019:  

1). Sunday, October 27th at 2.30 pm I will be heading to Peace Portal Seniors Village in South Surrey to play in costume for the seniors residing there.  I am hoping many of my students will come along for the experience.  They LOVE hearing music and seeing young people in costume!

2). Sunday, November 24th at 7 pm is the BCRMTA Surrey branch Canada Music Week recital.  I am allowed to enter only 5 students.

3). Sunday, December 8th at 6 pm will be our Christmas Recital at Northwood United Church in Surrey.  (More to come later.)

Welcome to the 2019-2020 Studio year and an introduction to Skippy!

Welcome students & parents,

As you all hopefully remember, lessons commence this same week as schools open.  I hope you are all rested and refreshed and ready to make some music!  

Remember to just knock and walk in in the minutes just prior to your lesson time.  If you arrive early, please wait in the car until it is almost your scheduled  lesson time (if possible).  Some students don’t mind having an observer for the last part of their lesson, but others are not comfortable having the next student sitting right behind them.  There is a hassock in the entrance way — unfortunately I do not have a “waiting room”.

Also, just to let you know that you may be greeted a little more noisily the next time you arrive.  A 3-legged canine friend of mine, Skippy, is staying with us.  She is a dog who we are fostering.  She will not be in the Studio area, and will not be in the entrance way unless you request to meet her.  She is very friendly but as with all new dogs, don’t pet her without asking their owner/friend.  

I am SO looking forward to seeing all of you again this week!

June Recital

Sunday, April 21, 2019 by Colleen Branson | Uncategorized

Hello Studio Families!

Happy Easter......and anything else you celebrate at this time of year!

I cannot believe how fast this year is flying away.  The June recital is just 2 months away!!!    June 23rd at 6:30 pm -- mark it on your calendars.  I am holding it the same place as last June's recital, at Northwood United Church.  Unfortunately 6:30 is the earliest we can start this time.  I hope this works out for everyone.  

More details will follow and we will start polishing up pieces not too long from now.  I am SO enjoying teaching all your children and hope you are enjoying listen to them practice and seeing them progress.  

Musically yours ... Mrs. Colleen Branson, RMT
