Jacqui's Piano Studio

October 2020 Newsletter

Dear Parents and Students,

It has been a whirlwind getting into the school year!! I hope you have all settled into a routine and are enjoying the beautiful weather and foliage. Miss Delaney, Sarah and I have done a lot of brainstorming about our Halloween Events and hope students can participate in a hybrid schedule of zoom and in-person group classes at First Parish in Saco and also come to the studio outside on Halloween for goody bags and a picture with us dressed up before our virtual Halloween Bash! Should be a super fun day.

Please plan to watch the Virtual Halloween Bash LIVE from 5-6:30 on Halloween day instead of later in the week. Invite family and friends to watch and make a big deal out of it for the kids. Invite the kids to dress up early and come by the studio to get their programs, goody bags and get a photo with me, Miss Delaney and Sarah. It makes it a bigger and more special event for students that have been practicing hard this fall and also adds to the "live" experience since we cannot do an actual in person concert. Studying the piano and practicing daily is difficult so it is my hope to reward students and make them feel super special to reward their hard work.

Happy Autumn,
