Best of Season Show Coming on FEB 17th!!

In our Summer and Fall Show seasons we do something truly special - a BEST OF SEASON SHOW.  Best of Season is where we pick the top 3 songs from each show from the performances that season in all three of our sister schools and put on an epic battle of the bands to win Best Song of the Season and The Trophy.  Right now the trophy resides in our Ashburn school so we need to rally to keep it here.   If you or your student is in a show this season and their song is chosen, they will perform that song on Feb 17th in our BOS Show!  Winning songs will be announced Sunday, Feb 10th along with show details.  But for now mark your calendar:
Best of Season Show

We Kicked off our Adult Program! 

We were waiting in anticipation and WOW! This group came ready to play. We are excited to be adding this program to our repertorie. It's a great way to meet other musicans and work towards a common goal with the support of our amazing staff. It's fun laid back and all about the tunes. Sign up for our spring season now! It's 80's themed... 

Be sure to Catch their show coming up on FEB 16th at Epicure Cafe 5PM!  It's gonna ROCK!


Winter Weather Policy 

Inclement Weather
We do not follow the county school closures. Frequently they make decisions in the morning based on whether or not the buses can maneuver through the neighborhoods. We make our decision to open/close based on whether or not our staff can safely come to work. If we are open and you cannot make your lesson, we will do our best to find a make up lesson for you but cannot guarantee you will get one.
As a reminder we have 5 snow days built into our schedule.

We will announce our Open/Closed status on inclement weather days by 1PM by sending you an email and posting on our school Facebook page and in our show groups.  So be sure to check your inbox or social media prior to heading out.

Holidays
As a reminder, we are closed for certain, but not all, major holidays.  Our next upcoming closures are: 

•Memorial Day Weekend
•4th of July

Again, these holidays and snow days are built into your tuition fee schedule and no make ups are given for these closures.

So, let it snow!  Here we go!
