Greetings Music Time Academy Students & Parents!

We are excited to have launched a brand new website at:

The new and improved website features (by request) a section especially for current students and parents. We highly encourage all students to utilize this resource for important information, including the current calendar (showing all holiday closures), studio policies, recital/concert information (and links to photos & videos from past performances), plus an ever-growing section for practice resources and inspiration. Please check it out!

Showcase at Bombay Nick's Chai Bar!
Don't forget to support select students in our next public performance! Focused on group/ensemble and solo performances for vocalists, guitarists, and our rock bands especially, this showcase is going to take an "open mic night" type of format. We'll have an instructor kick off the show with a few tunes, then move on to our student program. To sign up, email  
Quick details:

Student of the Month
Congratulations to Jaden Husser!
Jaden will receive (along with priceless glory and endle
ss bragging rights) a $30 Gift Certificate to Music Time Academy, as well as a $20 gift card to the Cinema West Theater in Livermore!

Instrument: Guitar & Voice
Teacher: Xavier Gurerro
Age: 13
School:  Mendenhall Middle School
Grade: 8th
Student at Music Time Since: September 2009
Hobbies (besides practicing):  Jaden enjoys being on a karate tournament team competing in sparring and kata. She enjoys art, photography and loves her wood shop class.

There is no doubt about it - Jaden loves music! Originally beginning her lessons as a guitarist while still in elementary school, Jaden's instructor, Xavier, heard her sing one day and became anxious to help her develop her voice. After a discussion with Jaden and her mother, they have been focusing on singing ever since. Jaden enjoys not just singing along with the radio (which TOTALLY counts as practice), but also performing publicly. She performed at several past Music Time Academy Concerts, sung the national anthem at her karate tournament, and participated in a talent night at Mendenhall Middle School. In addition to success with music, Jaden is an honors student for academic excellence.
Do you know a current Music Time Academy student with a newsworthy musical story or accomplishment from the past month that should be featured? If so, please fill out our online nomination form by following this link:  STUDENT OF THE MONTH NOMINATION FORM
Teacher Feature
For September, we would like to feature the newest member of the Music Time family - Levon Victor Cucciardo (not a teacher here...yet)! Director/Drum Instructor, Anna Cucciardo and her husband Marc (owner of Livermore eWaste, just across the way from Music Time) are proud to introduce their brand new baby boy, born at home on Monday, August 26th (7 pounds, 4 ounces). Levon (named after the drummer of The Band, Levon Helm) not only "attended" 180 gigs during Anna's pregnancy, but has already made an appearance at several of his mother's performances since his birthday. Welcome to the world, little one!
