Registration will open after spring break, on Wednesday, April 13 at 6 am. There will be 20 available spots for each recital, and the recitals will run on the hour from 10-6 on Saturday and 1-6 on Sunday. You will be able to see when your teacher is available on the registration form. Be sure to let your teacher know if you want to perform!
BE A MUSICAL LADDER CHAMP!
Every 3-6 months, students have achievement tests with their teachers and if they pass they get really cool colored bracelets, certificates, and at certain levels, trophies – customized to our music school. It’s a great way to monitor your student’s progress in lessons to see how they’re doing. The Musical Ladder System is creating a big buzz at The Jenison Academy of Music!
As part of the Musical Ladder System, we encourage students to keep practicing so they hit those mile markers! Every time your student fills out a practice sheet, they get a Practice Champ bracelet and a spin on the wheel. Collect all 6 bracelets to get an extra trophy!
INTRODUCING PRACTICE BUDDIES!
The Academy of Music loves seeing our students excited about our 🆒🆕 practice buddies! We want your child to LOVE to practice their instrument just as much as you.
At the Academy of Music when you pass your first Musical Ladder test, you receive a 🆓 practice buddy! This is a great way to encourage more practice at home.
This is the perfect low pressure way to get your students to practice more at home by saying “Your practice buddy wants to hear you play!”
This is also the perfect opportunity to get DOUBLE POINTS for practicing!
1. Take a picture practicing with your buddy
2. Tag the Academy of Music
3. Use the#aompracticebuddy
