Happy New Year from all of us here at Music Time Academy!  We hope that your holiday season was merry and bright, and that you are as excited for 2013 as we are. 2012 was a fantastic year for us, as we:

 - Doubled the studio size in February (expanding into the back suite for 4 additional lesson rooms)
- Added 3 new, wonderful instructors to our staff
- Hosted 2 successful recitals at the Bothwell Arts Center (featuring over 120 live performances by students & instructors)
- Organized our first all-student Rock Band
- Expanded our Saturday hours to accommodate many more students
- Welcomed Monica as our full-time office manager to ensure that all students and parents receive administrative assistance for retail items and scheduling issues during open hours
- Launched this ever-so-insightful and informative newsletter to keep all students and parents up-to-date with studio news 

As we look forward to an even better 2013 with more growth for our studio, staff, and (of course) students, we would like to launch 2 new sections of the newsletter, highlighting one student and one instructor each month. If you know a student or instructor with a newsworthy accomplishment, please see below for details on how to nominate a deserving candidate.
