Hello Bowtown Community,

We hope that your spring has been going on a good note! As we near the end of the semester, we would like to update you with a few things.

Spring Recital – It’s time for our talented students and instructors to showcase their hard work! Please join us to celebrate the year end recital. Everyone is welcomed!

Sunday June 11th from 1:00 – 4 pm, at the West Hillhurst Go-Getters Association, 1940 6th Ave. N.W. Access is through the 19th street West doors.  

Please RSVP your interest in participating by emailing your name (or child’s name), a short biography and the name of the song that will be performed. This information will be used for the performer’s introduction. Also, there will be pot luck social after the performances. We welcome your contribution to the appetizer or dessert table.

We look forward to seeing you all there!

September 2017 Registration – We are now accepting payment for the fall semester. For full semester payment received prior to the beginning of the semester (September 5th), you will receive a 10% discount. Please arrange for payment as soon as possible to secure your day and time with the instructor of your choice. In September, our rates will increase to $30 for a half hour and $60 for an hour. Please find the new payment schedule attached which reflects the increase. Early registrants will receive the original rates.

Instructor update: We regret to inform you that Kuba and Lisa will not be teaching at Bowtown Music in the 2017-2018 school year. We have been honoured to have them as a valuable part of our team. We thank both instructors for their hard work and dedication to their students! You will see Kuba around as a substitute instructor.

We are happy to introduce Jackie Vandermaarel and Eric Svilpis to our team of professionals. Jackie teaches piano/vocal and Eric teaches guitar/drums/bass/ukulele. Their bios can be viewed on our website.

We invite our students to do try outs with any instructor on our roster. Our philosophy is there is learning to be gained from every instructor you have.

Summer Lessons – We are offering lessons this summer. If you plan to continue in the summer, you will only be asked to pay for the lessons you will be available for. Just let us know which days they are.

Band Camp – Summer Band Camp will run from August 21st to 25th! If your child and their friends want to take part in a stand out opportunity to enhance their musical skills, form a band, create a song, record it, jam and have some serious musical fun, please join us! For more information please read the attached poster.

Communication – If you have concerns, questions, praise, we want to hear from you! That is how we improve. Please phone the front desk with your confidential message. We want to hear from you.

Here comes Treble – Riddle of the Month:

What loses its head in the morning and gets it back at night?  [For answer ask front desk staff]
