WHAT'S NEW IN JANUARY AT BELLO STUDIOS! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

JANUARY 2022 NEWSLETTER NOW BELOW:

NEW LESSON CANCELLATION POLICY MEMO: Effective January 15th, 2022 As of January 15th, 2022, if canceling your lesson without 24 hour notice is necessary, you WILL still be responsible for payment for that lesson. We DO understand that it is cold / flu season, as well as Covid-19 still being a concern. However, without 24 hours notice, you will be responsible for the lesson payment as our teachers are waiting at our studios and therefore must be paid. ** If you are needing to cancel your lesson, please text or call your vocal coach THE DAY PRIOR (before 7pm) so that your instructor can try and get another student in to fill that time slot. If canceling your lesson is necessary under 24 hours notice, we can offer you a Zoom lesson at your normal time slot and your vocal coach will give you a link so that you can sign in and still take your lesson. Thank you for your understanding! Debbie & Dan Monroe

January 2022: Sing-Play-Perform with us! CALL 716-600-SING! A"Note" from Debbie & Dan Monroe to all of our talented singers and amazing dedicated parents!
New year, and Many New exciting things happening with our studio!


We are starting to fill up our calendar with some shows to keep our singers busy and on their toes! We are loving our Coffee Houses and they are very well attended. Our Vocal Coach Morgan Parnitzke will be running the Hamburg shows as Kelly Keller will be running the West Seneca SPoT Coffee Houses. More info on dates below.

We also have a new teacher or two starting in this New Year! Be on the lookout for some talented coaches coming!

Anthem training 2 hour workshop: January 15th (Saturday) from 3-5pm Have you ever wanted to sing The National Anthem at a Professional sporting event or even just a local school event? If so, then THIS workshop is for you! We will also be going over The Canadian Anthem as well. Sign up at the studio or with your private voice coach! Fee will be $50/cash or check only made out to Bello-Voice-Studio. We are very excited about this workshop as we were interviewed by The New York Post in an article on Tips for auditioning for the National Anthem! If you get to audition for a Professional Sporting team, most likely you will need to know both anthems. They are also A Capella!
(Limited space available for this workshop includes water and snacks)

We're so excited to have our 1st annual picnic and want all families to be a part of it!
It's the Saturday or Sunday after All Access. It will hopefully 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!

We have a TV back in our Green Room filled with Disney music videos, some games for siblings while they wait, and FREE popcorn too!

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😜)


CLOSINGS & OPENINGS: The studio will be open January 3rd and the ENTIRE month in 2022! (we're OPEN on all smaller “one” day holidays)


JR'S rehearsals this month are January 11th & 25th 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 January 4th & 18th from 6-7pm.This particular group will be by invite only. They will need to meet certain criteria and we will most definitely have a wait list! $10/week. (Ages 12-17) The Bella's group is FULL but if you are interested, we'll be holding auditions in privately. Please inquire at studio.


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.

INTHE KNOW: For ALL parents and students:
We'd 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 and Checks here at Bello. All payments MUST be made on the day of the lesson. *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.

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!
