We are also most excited to announce our NEW FREE (to Bello Studio Members ONLY) PRACTICE/REHEARSAL ROOMS! During our hours of operation (usually Sunday-Wednesday 2-9pm), if you see a practice room "open" on our ONLINE CALENDAR, you can contact the studio, Debbie Monroe, or your instructor and sign out that room and a special aux cord (that we already have for you at the studio) that will connect to your cell phone, IPad, Computer, Tablet or anything you use for your music. Once you come in, simply sign out the cord and find your rehearsal/practice room, plug in, and start singing! You can even record yourself and be able to see what you need to do to improve your performance. The Practice/Rehearsal Rooms are numbered and marked on each room so that you know where to go each time you come in to practice! What better way to get....Better...in a place of comfort, and a place where our singers feel at home. Think of it as...Our Zen is where Our friends come together in Sync.....Where words fail...Music Speaks....

2018 Bello Voice Studio Cancellation Policy
All cancellations MUST be made to your instructor 24 HOURS PRIOR to your scheduled lesson. This gives us the opportunity to reallocate your appointment to another student. If the cancellation is made after that time, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF THE LESSON – NO EXCEPTIONS. If three lessons are canceled within a three month period, you will be taken off the schedule to accommodate a student on the waiting list. Lessons are to be paid directly to the teacher (or the office) PRIOR TO the lesson. Lessons can also be paid monthly in advance if so desired. The instructors at Bello Voice Studio are highly qualified teachers which need to maintain a steady level of income. Our instructors expenses do not change if a student misses his or her lesson.Arrangements must be made 2 WEEKS PRIOR to a foreseen absence such as an extended leave of absence, vacation, or foreseen job related circumstances. If lessons are canceled by the instructor, students are not required to pay. Lessons payments will be adjusted for planned instructor absences. We try diligently to accommodate your other commitments. Please help us maintain our schedule on a weekly basis.
Thank you for your cooperation.

NEW SHOW RULES FOR EVERYONE AT BELLO VOICE STUDIO!! Please read and take note:

From now on...(unless otherwise specified) ALL Jr's Shows and Studio/Company shows will be separate.

Rule 1: COMPANY Members (those who have auditioned and made it to COMPANY level) will perform TWO songs at a time. STUDIO members will perform one song at a time and only sign up again if there is time in the show. (which there usually is) It is considered to be an honor to be in COMPANY.

Rule 2: Once signed up, you may NOT sign up more than once unless everyone else has had a chance to sing at least once.

Rule 3: If someone arrives late, they IMMEDIATELY go to the TOP of the list to sing!

Rule 4: DEBBIE MONROE & ALL TEACHERS ONLY, WILL RUN THE LIST AND LET YOU KNOW WHO AND WHEN WILL BE SINGING AND WHAT ORDER IT WILL BE IN!!!

Rule 5: It is expected that you stay for the entire show if possible. It shows your dedication and also allows us to see that you are supporting your fellow studio members. This also has a LOT of weight on YOU becoming a Company Member at some point! (This especially goes for our upcoming ALL ACCESS show in June) This year, due to so many in the studio, you must be invited to sing in this concert! Otherwise it would last over 5 hours and we already have the concert on 2 separate nights! Dates to be announced very soon!! Probably going to be June 18th, 19th, or 20th!!One night is for Jr's and the other night is for COMPANY members and Debbie Bello's Studio/Company members. (other teachers will be having their own shows at the studio so that their students can show off their talent with their families there!) We promise it will be just as special!

Thank you for your understanding with these new rules!
