JANUARY ROAD TRIP THE VOICE AUDITIONS! There will be a meeting once we decide what city we are traveling to. They have posted 3 so far. Is anyone up for Nashville? That would be a long road trip but a great place to go in January and a lot warmer than most other destinations! Let us know your thoughts and we will go from there. The age requirements are: You must be at least 12 years old to audition Unlike American Idol, you don’t even have to be a teenager to compete on The Voice. (The minimum age requirement is 15 on American Idol.) You do have to be a pre-teen, though; the show requires a minimum age of at least 12 years old, and you must turn 13 by a certain date. For season 16, which hasn’t begun yet, contestants are required to be 13 on or before March 20, 2019. The date changes depending on which season is filming. The entire trip will be organized by Debbie Monroe.

Company Auditions- will take place in the New Year! NEW AGE REQUIREMENTS: NOW AGES 13 and OLDER ONLY. Being a Company Member shows commitment and allows others who WANT to be in Company to see what an honor it IS to be in this position! Please make sure that you are fully ready to take on the responsibilities of a COMPANY position!

In the works!! Holiday shows! Festival Of Lights, Nursing Homes, possibly the Riverworks Holiday Show, Niagara Factory Outlet Mall and Holiday Coffee Houses! Mangia Dates: Nov. 16, 22, Dec. 14, 20!

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.

********Please remember that NOW is the time to come in and start recording your demo cds:GIFTCERTIFICATES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE AS GIFTS FOR VOCAL, PIANO, GUITAR, UKULELE, and RECORDING STUDIO TIME!! You can get them at the office when you come in!! (which can be put up on your Facebook pages and sent to representatives in the music industry!) in our recording studio! Please make sure you make your appt soon!
Call or Text Dan Monroe to make YOUR cd soon! His studio is located inside our studio so get those demos going! Recording slots are now filling up quickly! Call 716-609-1071


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 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!
