Learn how to find an "Easy Walk" with a free online class

"Getting outdoors is not just for those who can climb mountains. Finding Easy Walks, that is, not too many roots or rocks, relatively level, with something of interest along the way can offer great joy, regardless of our mobility or lack thereof. Come join us to get encouragement to be more active, learn some simple steps to make yourself safer outside, and much much more.

About the Leader: Marjorie Turner Hollman is a personal historian who loves the outdoors and has completed four Easy Walking guide books including her newest book Finding Easy Walks Wherever You Are. A native Floridian, she came north for college and snow! A freelance writer, she has appeared on Boston’s WCVB Channel 5 TV news magazine show, Chronicle, the Boston Globe, local radio and cable TV shows, and been published in local, regional, and national publications."

Each class is scheduled for an hour and Free!

Encore Music Updates: Changes for Fall 2021


View this email in your browser

July 12, 2021

 

Dear Valued Encore Families:

  We hope you all had a wonderful July 4th weekend despite the weather, and we are happy to be welcoming many of you back as we proceed with our Summer Session! 
 
We are writing with some very important updates:

 

RATES ARE CHANGING

 

Periodically, we have found it necessary to increase our lesson and class pricing in keeping with the economy, and we endeavor to do this no more than once every two years or so. This year after COVID, we will be adjusting pricing beginning with Fall Registration on Monday, July 19 at noon via phone.

This will be a 5% increase on average, but please check with the front office at time of registration to learn your instructor's new rate. This rate increase will not affect summer lessons at all, but will be in effect for all Fall registrants.

 

REGISTRATION FORMS

 

When you call to register, you will be emailed a registration form that will need to be filled out immediately upon receipt and sent back to the front office at:

 
 

Your chosen lesson time will be held for 24 hours and is predicated upon receipt of registration form AND payment. If both are not received in that 24-hour period, the lesson time will be released into the pool once again. 

 

Please be sure to read all information on the registration form, as it contains all of our policies and procedures, and sign it.

 

The annual registration fee of $30 will be assessed at time of registration.

   

IN-PERSON OR ONLINE

Beginning with our Fall Registration on Monday, July 19 at noon via phone, you will have the opportunity to choose how you would like your student to attend lessons. The world and times are changing, and we want to be in step.

We will be back in-person at 3 Bent Street beginning the Tuesday after Labor Day, and all students are welcome back. We understand, however, that some may wish to remain online, so when registering, please let the office know if you are registering for online lessons or for in-person lessons. We intend to offer both options on a permanent basis.

 

SCHEDULING AND MAKE-UPS

 

All scheduling and make-ups will continue to be handled via email or phone on a permanent basis. If you need to reschedule, please contact the front office at (508) 533-7700, ext. 101, or email us at:

                         encoremusicacademy1@gmail.com

INSTRUMENT RENTALS AND PURCHASES

Encore is thrilled to announce our partnership with The Music Wagon, LLC, to provide our students and students in the surrounding areas the opportunity to rent or purchase instruments at Encore!

Options for rental, rent to own, and outright purchase are available and all you need to do is visit our website and click on the rentals link or call us at (508) 533-7700, Ext. 101.

Additionally, you can scan this QR code and it will take you directly to our rental page.




If you are heading back to school and need a band instrument, a string instrument, or a keyboard or guitar, we've got you covered! And, best of all, if you can't come to us, we'll bring your instrument to you!  

REFERRAL PROGRAM

 

Encore has, since we opened our doors in 2012, offered a referral program to our current families. Refer a student to us, and when that student registers and remains for a minimum of one month, the referring family will receive a free lesson.

Please be sure to let the registering student know to mention your name when they register so that you may receive credit. 

 


As always, we are grateful to all of you for your continued support of Encore and our mission. We wish you all a very happy and fun-filled summer, and look forward to seeing each and every one of you in September - it's been way too long!!

 

Warmest regards,

 

Lisa and Pat
