I hope your summer is going well. We've had a great summer here at the store as well. But, as of late, we've been gearing up for the coming school year. When did we start our preparations you ask? Actually, we started last April. We start our planning for the coming school year long before the current year ends. In the spring, school bands are having meetings and instrument testing and we assist many of the band directors with this. We're also making sure that we have the preferences (books, instrument brands and accessories) for all area band directors and local teachers.
Throughout May, June and July we are having meetings, conference calls and training sessions to make sure that all staff members are prepared for the new school year. Additionally, our staff of teachers are also preparing for the arrival of new students in the fall. While many of their new students will be in local school bands, many of these new students will be for piano, guitar, voice, percussion, ukelele, banjo, mandolin and many others. Whew! That's a long list and a lot of preparation on our part.
Lastly, we know that Back To School time also means that many of the folks coming through our doors have never stepped inside a music store before. A great number of these folks are first time musicians and in many cases, the parents have also never played an instrument. Which is fine! That's what we're here for. We're here to make the process easy and fun. We love beginners - and for the most part - it's what we do. We make the entire process easy and stress free - getting an instrument, finding the right book and necessary supplies, signing up for lessons and helping you navigate this new world you are going to explore. And most importantly, we are here 7 days a week to provide support and encouragement to insure that you have everything you need to achieve success in your new endeavor.
What's our definition of success? That's easy. FUN!
So, if you are ready...........we're ready too. Come on in and we'll help you get started with your new adventure. We'll see you soon!
