OCTOBER NEWSLETTER NOW BELOW!

OCTOBER 2020: Sing-Play-Perform with us!

A "Note" from Debbie & Dan Monroe to all of our talented singers and amazing parents! A few exciting announcements to be made at this time! We have hired yet ANOTHER vocal coach to our teaching staff! Please welcome Alexa Wery! In addition to Stephanie Giermek, Alexa Wery is now on board and she not only teaches voice, but piano, guitar, and ukulele! A little back story to her starting here at Bello. Both Alexa and her mom Valerie took lessons from me (Debbie) in the past. I also have to tell you that Stephanie Giermek also took lessons from me in the past and now still works with Dan for recording her own original music! I always say everything comes full circle. All of our teachers here at Bello have at some point in their lives taken lessons with us!

Dan will be teaching from our home studio Bello Studio West/Abbott Road location starting this month.
He has better recording equipment and enjoys implementing that aspect into his lessons. Our studio is getting very busy and we are busting at the seams which is a good thing! We are still looking into singing at SPoT Coffee in Hamburg and The Hard Rock Cafe in Niagara Falls USA. 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! We are also getting some holiday/Christmas shows lined up! Stay tuned for more info! It truly was SO good to be our performing again last month and we're trying our best to make it happen on a more current basis! 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 "House Shows" we ARE going to perform! It's what we do! 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. It seems as though everyone is adapting to this new way of life. We are still complying with these new 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) Great to be LIVE and in person again! Please tell all your friends about our NEW business line 716-600-SING!

*
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!

This is going to be a first come first serve event. We want to keep the number to a minimum and will have to make a cut off after 50 people. We are asking that each student (singer) bring one parent. Everyone is asked to dress up too! It will be held at The Keller's home in Orchard Park. Address is: 14 Tranquility Lane Orchard Park 14127. Please bring an appetizer and we'll provide pizza, water, and pop and adult (wine & beer) If anyone wants to bring their own spooky drinks, feel free to do so. We'll also be having a Costume Contest so come dressed to SCARE the YELL out of us! If you can incorporate music into your costume, that would be an additional treat for all to see!

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!
