Due to the inconvenient location of the Hessville Christian Church to all of our students, we are looking to move our our Annual Holiday Recital scheduled for Friday evening, December 22 at 7 pm to a new location. We have students from Munster, Lansing, Highland, Dyer, Schererville and Crown Point. The church in Hammond has been kind enough to let us use their facilities in the past, but it is not in a central location, and the trains continue to be a problem as well as construction in that area. Lansing Presbyterian Church on Ridge Road between Burnham Avenue and Torrence Avenue has hosted fundraisers for TF South High School that we have attended. It has a very nice kitchen/hall that is all on one floor with no stair climbing required. Since it’s only about 2 miles over the Indiana/Illinois state line, the location is much better for everyone. The only draw back is that since none of our students are members of the church, the fee for renting the hall is rather steep, plus we would have to bring our own sound system and keyboard and set up and clean up ourselves. The increase in the cost of holding our recital there may mean charging a small ticket price or at the very least having a “donations” box on the refreshment table.
Perhaps one of you know of another church or community center where we can hold our recital. If you do know of somewhere, please email or call us as soon as possible.
What does every think of changing the location? Asking for donations? Any other opinions or suggestions?
Congratulations to Logan and Brent who tied for most practice minutes for the month of September. They both practiced over 400 minutes. September was a very close race. Logan and Brent beat out 2nd place finishers Audrey and Iris by only 10 minutes. Keep up the great work everyone!
UPDATE: Thanks for the help students! I now have 2 of the 3 open slots filled. I still have room for 1 more–tell your friends!
Larimer Music has 3 open lesson slots-2 on Tuesday and 1 on Thursday. We would love to fill those open lesson times. If you know someone who may be interested in either piano or vocal lessons, please ask us for a business card or simply give them our website or phone number. If they sign up for a month of lessons, you get a free lesson and our most sincere thanks.
Students should have received our Sept/October 2017 newsletter last week, but just in case it didn’t make it home, here it is:
Congratulations to our newest and youngest piano student–Iris–for winning our Practice Minutes Contest for the month of August. It takes a lot of effort to get 395 minutes of piano practice in a month’s time, so great job Iris! Students–be sure to keep track of how many minutes you are practicing each week so that YOU can be the winner in September!
Hope all of our students and their families enjoy Labor Day!
All students should have received a Lesson Contract which should be read, signed, and returned at the next lesson and a 2017-2018 Lesson Calendar. If you/your student misplaced the Lesson Contract, please request another. It will not be posted here as it is customized for each student. Just in case the calendar is lost, it is here:
Exciting news–Larimer Music will begin its Fall Lesson Schedule tomorrow, August 28, 2017. We are open for business once again. If you are unsure of your new lesson day/time, please refer to our Fall Lesson Schedule here: Can’t wait to begin working with all of you once again!
