Our 2 new vocal coaches, Morgan Parnitzke and Bubba Elbaneh are now teaching at our studio and will be taking on students from here on out too! These two teachers have some pretty impressive credentials and a ton of experience in the music industry. Some of our singers have already taken a lesson with them both and they had so many great things to say about them!
NEW ANNUAL BELLO PICNIC 2022! June 25th is the date we are going with. It's the Saturday after All Access. It will be held at Chestnut Ridge. We'll need a head count of all families interested so we can plan the right size shelter up there and start getting things ready. We hope to make this an annual event for all singers and family members!

EVERYONE is welcome in our new Green Room Waiting Room while you wait for your children in lessons. We have a TV back there filled with Disney music videos, some games for siblings while they wait, 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! 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! 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😜)

th and 21st AND BELLO 1st ANNUAL PICNIC June 25th! We are so excited to have our first annual picnic and want all families to be a part of it!

CLOSINGS & OPENINGS: The studio will be OPEN the entire month of Sept! (except for Labor Day which has now passed) So much going on! If you look below, you'll see we really need to prepare for our September show on the 11th and also a possible Music Industry Workshop in either late October or November.

NEW HARMONY WORKSHOP FOR THOSE INTERESTED WILL BE IN LATE SEPTEMBER/EARLY OCTOBER. If you are interested in getting a slot for this workshop, you will need to text Debbie asap. The workshop will last 3 hours and will also be very hands on and a busy 3 hours. Once the slots are filled, it will be closed. We are only accepting 10 students in this workshop and the cost is the same as our last one $100. (will include healthy snacks and water) It will be held on a Friday or Saturday in the later afternoon. Please only sign up if you are fully committed to working for the full 3 hours. We'll also do a recording (video) at the end of the workshop to see the capabilities of real harmony. If you took the last workshop, this will be part 2 for you but also going into more depth of this skill.

JR'S rehearsals this month are Sept 9th THURSDAY (just this week at 5-6pm) and 21st at 6-7pm. we will be holding bi-weekly rehearsals so that our kids can be together 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. (Ages 5-11)

BELLO BELLA'S rehearsals this month are THURSDAY Sept. 9th at 6pm and Sept. 14th and 28th 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/week. (Ages 12-16)

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! No more than 2 missed rehearsals or you won't be eligible for a solo at the next performance. We only have 2 meetings a month to prepare.

Something ALL Parents and Students need to know:
We 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 extremely 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.
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.


Please be considerate when asking to move your lesson times. We will do our best to accommodate your request but you are responsible for your day and time slot. Our instructors have busy lives and are only available for your particular time slots. We do try to help out whenever we can but only if it's once in a while and not a weekly thing. 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!

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!
