JULY 2020 Newsletter


Dear Students, 

We are excited to resume in person lessons!

Here's what I know:

1. You will continue to have the option to have your lessons online, for as long as you'd like. We offered this option before the restrictions, and we will offer it after. It is your choice as to when you resume in person lessons with us. Online lessons will always be an option for you.  

2. Teachers will be at the school to teach lessons if you choose to come to us OR if you prefer to Zoom in. Either way your lesson will occur at your normal day and time. 

3. We are following the CDC guidelines to keep students, teachers and staff safe and here's what they are:

• We ask that every student upon arrival wash their hands.

• We have complimentary disposable masks if you would like one, just ask the office. These are FREE for our students to use during the lesson (and can then be discarded), but you have to be a current student or family member of a current student to receive one.

• We have (and have always had) plenty of hand sanitizer in each teaching room as well as the common areas.

• We have additional complimentary 2 oz bottles of hand sanitizer if you would like one, just ask the office. These are FREE for our students to use during lessons.

• We ask that for now you do not wait in the waiting areas, but that you wait in your vehicle while your child's lesson is being held. What's really cool is you can ZOOM into the lesson with your phone and watch every minute from your vehicle. If you arrive early, please either call or text the office to let us know that you are here, and we will let you know when your teacher is ready for you. Then, we will meet you at the door to escort your child inside.

• Please keep 6 feet of distance from teachers, staff and other clients. 

• We (as we always have), are cleaning the schools multiple times a day.

• Additionally we have hired a professional cleaning service to deep clean each school weekly. 

So...Start practicing to show off your skills in person to your teacher! 

Our office team will be standing by to assist you as normal Sundays 11am - 4 p.m., Monday - Thursday 9am-8 p.m., Fridays 11am-7:30 p.m., and Saturdays 9am - 5 p.m. So please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance with your in person lessons, online lessons or anything else. We cannot wait to see you in person at your next lesson!

Thank YOU for being a part of the Harrison School of Music!

Please give a BIG Musical WELCOME to our NEW Students who enrolled in May and June!

Celebrating Student Achievement - The Musical Ladder System®

The Harrison and New City School of Music are the only music schools in Westchester and Rockland Counties that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests with the Musical Ladder System®. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.

More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins!

Pictured Bottom Left: Piano Student DeVine earned her Master (36 Months) Wristband.
Pictured Bottom Right: Violin Student Cameron earned her Apprentice (6 Month) Wristband.
Be on the lookout in next month's news and on our Facebook & Instagram pages for more great pics of our award winning students!

To learn more about how the system can help your child to get better grades, improved confidence, and self esteem and more, please email us at office@harrisonmusicschool.com or office@newcitymusicschool.com
