DECEMBER NEWSLETTER NOW BELOW!

DECEMBER 2020: Sing-Play-Perform with us!
A "Note" from Debbie & Dan Monroe to all of our talented singers and amazing parents! It's that time of year again everyone! We hope everyone is working on their holiday songs. We were hoping to have a show or at least a party for Christmas but it isn't looking so promising now that we are in Orange. Please keep checking our Facebook Silent Group Chat to find out more details on any new info! 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" If you are not a fan of (social media) Facebook, it would be great if you could download just the Facebook Messenger App so that we can all see the same information at the same time and all questions can be answered. It is a "Silent Group chat" so that no one is inundated with notifications so PLEASE do not respond (even with an emoji😜) . Once you've read the information, you can respond by text, inbox (via messenger) or email to bellovoicestudio@yahoo.com.
We're sad to say goodbye to one of our teachers as she is moving to Arizona in December. We wish Stephanie Giermek the very best in her new journey! She's taken a job there and gets to enjoy some beautiful weather 365 days a year!!
This year we'll be off from Friday, December 18th until Sunday, January 3rd, 2021 for the Christmas holiday! Hoping the New Year will be better than this year!

WEATHER CLOSINGS:
Now that the weather is getting colder, if conditions get too bad out and we need to close the studio, it will be posted on Facebook and we will also get in touch with all students on this particular day to let you know not to risk coming out here.

Our studio is getting very busy and we are busting at the seams which is a good thing! The Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls USA did get back to us so we will be scheduling a show in early 2021. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions where we could sing or have a show, please get in touch with one of our vocal coaches and we will get right on it! It's out of our hands due to Covid but we will do our best to make it happen. *Even if we have to have more "House Shows" we ARE going to perform! It's what we do! It seems as though everyone is adapting to this new way of life. We are still complying with these rules. We have a hand sanitizing station upon entering the studio which we insist everyone use. We also have gloves and masks available if you would like to use and keep (FREE) for your lesson. (wearing a mask during your lesson is completely up to the parents and students) At this time we ask that you wait in your car for the student prior to you has left the building before entering. Please text your instructor to let them know you have arrived. They will either text you, or wave you in when it's safe to do so. *Our doors will be locked during lessons to ensure the least amount of people in the building at one time. (please no siblings or friends allowed during lessons)

CLOSINGS & OPENINGS: The studio be closed from Friday, December 18th until Sunday, January 3rd, 2021 for the
Christmas holiday!

Due to the fact that at this time we don't have anyone working in our office, we have automated messages that will be going out if a lesson is missed, or canceled less than 24 hours in advance. Please take note.
Automated message: as you're aware we have a 24 hour cancellation policy here at Bello. We missed you at your last lesson, but didn't receive any word from you within the 24 hour period prior. A $60 payment has been added to your account for this reason. Please take care of this balance before your next scheduled lesson so we can continue to make music together! Thanks!

Automated message: as you're aware we have a late payment charge policy here at Bello. For this reason $5 had been added to your account. Please take care of this balance before your next scheduled lesson so we can continue to make music together! Thanks!

Kelly's Korner: Welcome December! Although there may not be any shows this month, use this time to record your Christmas CD and spread some holiday cheer to your loved ones. Consider adding a special song for someone you love to brighten up their day. With the weight of the world right now and all that is going on, focus on what matters to you. We are all in this together. We are a family here at Bello and I know I use the studio and it’s amazing people to help me through this all. Whatever you need, we are here for you all. I’m wishing you all the very best during this holiday season. May the wonder and magic overtake this pandemic for you all. And may this new year bring us more joy and happiness! Love you all!

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!
