Studio Update - February 2009

Two months are almost over in this year and I feel like the time has really flown. There is so much that I want to accomplish this year. Here are just a few of the projects that I am currently working on.

Private Piano and Voice instruction We currently have 9 students enrolled and attending weekly lessons. Our enrollment goal for the next month is to add 10 more students. Let your friends and family know about the Elliott Music Studio and receive the Friends and Family Referral Discount. If they sign-up for their first month of lessons you receive 10% off yours. It's our thank you to you for sharing us with the people in your life. We look forward to sharing music with your friends and family. And if that wasn't enough be sure to share our Valentine's Discount for new students this month

10% off Valentine's Discount Offer
During the month of February I am running a 10% off Valentine's discount for everyone that signs up for lessons from now until the end of this month. Continue to receive 10% off your next month if you refer a friend that signs up for one month's worth of lessons. Bring this coupon to your first lesson to receive the discount. I look forward to sharing music with you!

Elliott Music Classes This idea has been in the works for sometime now and we are finishing up the details. Class offerings will include: Tiny Tot's Music I & II for children 16 months – 4 years old & parent, Family Music for all ages and Classroom Music for Little Mozarts for children 4, 5 & 6 years of age & parent. I plan to start offering these classes in October 2009 at One Spirit United Methodist Church in KC, MO. For more information and updates check out the Elliott Music Classes Website.

United Methodist Church Lay Musician Certification. I am still making progress on my final class for to fulfill my United Methodist Studies requirement for musician certification. Once that is complete, I have an application process that includes recommendation letters, an essay, and an application followed by interviews. I must be done by the end of March. I am confident that next June, during United Methodist Church Annual Conference, I will be receiving my certificate.
