Happy Spring and
Happy Memorial Day to everyone!!

MAY 2021: Sing-Play-Perform with us! CALL 716-600-SING! Come sing with us!
A "Note" from Debbie & Dan Monroe to all of our talented singers and amazing parents!

We LOVE that our studio is fully
OPEN and we mean OPEN! Our doors are no longer locked and we are so excited to have people back in our studio. We're also in the exciting process of hiring some new vocal coaches!
Please make sure you use our Green Room Waiting Room while you wait for your children in lessons. We have a new TV back there filled with Disney music videos and popcorn too! So many of our singers are using our new performance room and loving it! They are practicing, recording themselves and getting new confidence on stage! That's why we encourage our singers to come and use our FREE practice rooms so music is always being heard in our studios! It's time to renew friendships, have conversations, listen to our children singing and get on with life. We are truly excited to announce this! We have 2 waiting rooms which we'd love everyone to use. When you arrive for lessons, feel free to come on in and wait. We just ask that you wear a mask and use our hand sanitizing stations in all open areas. If you would like a beverage while you wait, water and Tim Horton's coffee are only $1. Please make sure you pay one of our coaches before you grab your hydration and remember that our popcorn is always FREE! “REAL LIVE” shows again will be happening beginning this summer! (Backyard Bashes and Open Door Studio shows in our new Performance Room) will be happening) Please keep checking our Facebook Silent Group Chat to find out more details on any new info about shows! If you haven't been added to this chat, just ask your coach and we'll see to it that you are added. It is important that everyone is on our Facebook "Silent Group Chat" It is a "Silent Group chat" so that no one is inundated with notifications so PLEASE do not respond (even with an emoji😜)


NEW DRESS CODE: When performing out in public and representing our studio, we ask that you purchase a studio t-shirt to be worn at all outdoor shows and follow these rules for all other indoor shows.

1. No tummy shirts (belly buttons are not to be seen at our shows please)
2. No shorts that are too short or that show your derriere cheeks please.
3. Excessively low tops that show too much cleavage are not permitted at shows.
4. Ripped jeans are fine but remember that you are representing our studio and must remain and look professional at all times.


BIG NEWS FOR OUR LITTLE ONES AND NOW................ BELLA'S AND FELLAS!!
JR'S rehearsals started this past month on April 20th, at 6pm-7pm we will be holding bi-weekly rehearsals so that our kids can be together again and do what they love to do...SING! There is a limit on the number of children we can have at these rehearsals so if you would like to be on our list, contact Debbie asap and you will be placed on the JR'S list. The cost per child is only $10/week.
BELLA'S & FELLAS will begin on May 11th (Tuesday) from 6-7pm. This particular group will be by invite only. We are anticipating many wanting to join this group and are going in a couple different directions which these kids will love! They will need to meet certain criteria and we will most definitely have a wait list! $10
BOTH of these groups will be meeting bi-weekly and must maintain attendance in order to remain in the groups. It's only fair that everyone comes to the rehearsals because this is the only way to sound GREAT! If you are interested in joining, please talk to your vocal coach and we can get you prepared to join our group!

SHOWS: ALL ACCESS Concerts will be held June 20th (younger) We know that it is also Father's Day but did a poll and everyone agreed they wanted to keep it on this day. The Stage was very tough to book and we wanted to keep it to two days in a row. So they will be on a Sunday and a Monday. The 21st (older) will be for our older singers. Please put these dates on your calendars asap. Times to be announced and our shows will be held at The Stage on Main Street in Williamsville. If you'd like to purchase an ad for your business or put a special memory or dedication for your child in the program, there will be a flyer coming out soon with all the info!
Tickets will be $10/each Pre-sale and $12 at the door. Singers will not have to pay for a ticket to these shows!

Something ALL Parents and Students need to know:
We would really like all of our students to get used to ALL of our instructors! This way our “musical family” can grow even closer. From time to time, our instructors need to get away on a little vacation or might be sick. This doesn't happen too often but it does happen. This does not mean your lessons won't go on as scheduled but if you find one of our “other” instructors there to teach you on a particular day, please rest assured, they are VERY well qualified to teach you or your talented little singers! It's most important to keep up with your lessons so we can be ready to perform at our upcoming shows.

Something even NEWER!
Our old recording room has NOW been transformed into a Performance Room with STAGE and all and is READY FOR BUSINESS! There will be many things happening back in this area for all of our Bello Families! New Coffee Houses, Private performances, Summer Shows, and we even have a new entrance that will allow us to use the side parking lot too! Many of our singers are using this room to practice and get better at their craft on stage!

CLOSINGS & OPENINGS: The studio be closed only on Memorial Day which is May 31st (Monday) No lessons.
NOTICE: **Payment Rules In Effect: We accept Cash, Checks, PayPal and Venmo. All payments MUST be made on the day of the lesson and sent via "Friends and Family" only if you are using PayPal. Our address is bellovoicestudio@yahoo.com and Venmo is Bello-Voice-Studio.*ALL lessons are $60/for ALL coaches.*Due to the fact that at this time we don't have anyone working in our office.
Please be aware that we have a 24 hour cancellation policy here at Bello. If you miss your last lesson, and we didn't receive any word from you within our 24 hour period prior. A $60 payment will be added to your account. Please take care of this balance before your next scheduled lesson so we can continue to make music together!


Kelly's Korner:
Since ALL ACCESS is right around the corner I thought I should talk about how to make your performance the most memorable! It’s not all about how perfect you can sing your song, it’s more than that. Are you using dynamics the best way possible? Are you using the whole stage? Are you walking around? Are you using emotion not just in your voice but with your movement? Stage presence is so important and that’s what the audience will remember! You are all so talented and your voices are unique to you. I can’t wait to watch every single performance and to cheer you all on! Get out there and leave it all on the stage!!

2021 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!
