Dumb Friends League

Did you know that a portion of your monthly tuition goes towards supporting the Dumb Friends League? The Dumb Friends League is a Denver-based nonprofit committed to rescuing, rehabilitating, and finding forever homes for homeless pets and we are thrilled to say we get to be a small part of the big impact they make.

At the heart of the Dumb Friends League's mission is a profound commitment to the well-being of animals and the community. Beyond its rescue efforts, the league offers a range of services including affordable spay/neuter programs, behavioral training, and humane education initiatives. By advocating for responsible pet ownership and championing animal welfare legislation, the Dumb Friends League serves as a beacon of hope and empowerment for both animals and their human companions, fostering a more compassionate and harmonious relationship between people and pets.

By supporting the Dumb Friends League, our school community plays a vital role in creating a more compassionate society and ensuring that every animal has a chance for a loving home. We're immensely proud to be part of this meaningful collaboration and look forward to continuing our support for the Dumb Friends League's vital work.

New Lesson Account!

Welcome to your NEW Lesson Account! Throughout February and March, we worked with all Families and Students to move to a new scheduling and billing system, but there’s so much more to it! With this new Portal, you have more lesson options than ever before. 

You are able to manage your schedule; cancel a lesson and generate a private makeup credit; browse Teacher bios to find the perfect fit; and message your Teacher directly for updates on lessons and assignments! We wanted to make your life easier and we hope this does just that. 

Did you or your Student just pick up a new hobby that conflicts with your current lesson time? No worries! You are now able to go into your portal and browse all available times & teachers to find the perfect fit to transfer to. 

What if you have a one-time conflict and can’t make your upcoming lesson, but you’d like to stick with your day, time, and Teacher ongoing? The option of having a recorded video lesson being made and sent your way is still an option, and by uploading directly to your Lesson Account, there is no download expiration you need to worry about. Now though, there’s another option for you too! You can log in to your Portal, cancel a lesson 24 hours or more in advance, generate a private makeup credit (up to 3 a year), and schedule that makeup lesson with your Primary Instructor - all from within your Portal! 

Your Lesson Account also has a messaging system so you can communicate with your instructor directly, and a Virtual Classroom so you have the option of having an online or in person lesson every week. There’s a lot of new options we wanted to be sure to share with you, but we recommend taking a look for yourself! Use the QR code below to log in to your Lesson Account today and explore!

MUSIC TIP OF THE MONTH : Be Kind to Yourself!

Learning music is a journey that requires patience, persistence, and above all, kindness towards oneself. Whether you’re a new student picking up a guitar for the first time, or a dedicated pianist continuing to improve your skills, embracing self-compassion is essential to fostering growth and enjoyment throughout the musical process. 

It's natural to encounter challenges and setbacks along the way, but rather than becoming discouraged, treating yourself with gentleness and understanding can be transformative. Acknowledging progress, no matter how small, and celebrating personal achievements are integral aspects of nurturing a positive relationship with music learning. Participating in the Recital, reaching new levels on the Musical Ladder, seeking out the next book you’re ready for, are all HUGE wins when learning music and deserve a pat on the back. 

It's important to remember that perfection is not the goal, but rather the joy of expression and exploration. Embracing mistakes as opportunities for learning and growth fosters resilience and creativity. Setting realistic expectations, practicing self-care, and maintaining a sense of curiosity and wonder are all vital components on the musical journey. 

Remember to be kind to yourself and celebrate the small wins too!
