Plymouth School of Music’s Website has a NEW look!
After months of hard work, Plymouth School of Music is proud to announce that our website has been completely redesigned. Check out our new look at the same address as before: Www.plymouthschoolofmusic.com. We encourage you to visit and take a quick tour of our slick and swanky new look. The school director (Jeff Davis) is the creator of the new look. While creating it he had one thing in mind-YOU the student. Mr. Davis spent hours talking with parents, students and prospective students alike-people who use the website the most– to find out what they were looking for, and what the most important tools they felt most important. Overall, the menus and navigation have been simplified particularly with lessons related communications. One addition that has been a huge improvement is a LIVE chat feature where questions can be asked by new and current students alike. What’s more, a mobile version of the site has been added to make viewing and accessibility much easier. Other components have been added such as a “Recital Sign up” page. Students will now be able to see sign up at their convenience online and see the program one week in advance of the performance!..Go online and check it out today!
Summer Vacation plans 2014: Don’t lose your lesson time!
Are you going to be absent a lot and are considering withdrawing from lessons all because you will be absent for a few weeks? Don’t lose your lesson time! And go through the re registration process when returning in the fall; we have a solution for you...
Starting the month of may we will be offering advanced makeup classes on an additional day to be offered May through August.
In the past years Plymouth School of Music has always grown significantly during the summer months both in June and in August (by as much as 50%). Students in the past that have decided to withdraw from lessons for the summer have returned to find the valuable lesson time has been filled by a new student; all because they had a vacation planned. Don’t let this happen to you! It’s always a heartbreaker to have to tell a returning student in the fall that we have to put them on a waiting list or that they might not get a convenient lesson time.
Get your makeup lessons in advance AND keep your valuable lessons by signing up for your makeup lessons before summer arrives!
Guitar Student:Evan Aldrich
What made decide to learn the Guitar? I have always like the sound of the Guitar. I always thought that it would be and interesting and fun thing to play. I figured that it would keep me challenged. What is the coolest thing that you have been learning in your lessons? I have been having a fun time learning to play popular songs. My teacher Jeff has been teaching me to play songs like “radioactive” and “Pompeii”. They aren’t really easy to play, but they’re so much fun to play that it seems easier Do you have any pets? I have a Dog named Cali. She is a cockapoo. What is your favorite food? I really like watermelon A LOT! _____________________________________________ Evan has been studying the guitar at PSoM for almost a year. He has been learning quite rapidly and has performed in the studio recital last December. Stay tuned for her performance video which will be posted on YouTube in the next few months!
Let’s welcome the following NEW students to Plymouth School of Music!
Long Time Students!
As you know, at Plymouth School of Music, we always feature a student of the month in every newsletter. In this month’s newsletter we’d like to continue featuring “long time students of the month”. It’s inspiring to check in on those who have been studying for a while and hear about their musical journey. In this month’s newsletter we’d like to feature two brothers that have been studying guitar for over 3 years!
Who is your teacher and how long have you been studying with them? Aaron and Jordan: 3 years ago Mr. Davis came to our school and did a demonstration on the guitar and it was really cool. We decided to sign up for lessons right away!. How much time do you spend practicing each day? Aaron: 30 to 40 minutes a day Jordan: 20 to 30 minutes everyday. I spend the most time on notereading. I have made it through 3 hal leonard guitar method books. Do you have any advice for students that are have a difficult time keeping up with their practicing? Aaron: Listen to your teacher when he or she says to practice! He knows what he’s talking about. Jordan: Stick with it and it takes dedication. I used to have a really hard time with rhythm reading but I just kept working on it and eventually with my teachers help, I got it down! What are you working on in your lessons? Aaron: Electric Eye by judas priest Jordan: I am learning the Entertainer adapted for the Guitar with standard notation not tablature.
