Summer Specials

• Music Lesson Gift Certificate Special - With many families traveling over the summer, it can be difficult to keep a regular lesson schedule. We are offering Gift Certificates at various levels which allow you to purchase lessons at a discounted rate and then schedule lessons as you have time this summer. The Gift Certificates are good for a full year, so if you can’t get in all the lessons during the summer, you can apply them to lessons in the fall or later.

Four Lessons* - $100
Eight Lessons* / Get the 9th Free* - $200
Twelve Lessons* / Get 2 Free* - $300
* 30 minute lessons

• Free Fender Guitar Special - We are working with Fender Guitars to offer a special with a free electric or acoustic starter guitar with the purchase of a package of lessons. We have not finalized the details, but we expect the lesson package to be for 3 to 6 months of lessons to get the free guitar. Please call for details.

• Free Fender Bass Special - Many of our bands are in need of bass players, so we are encouraging new students to play bass - and also guitarists to play bass as a second instrument. We have not finalized the details, but we expect the package to be for 3 to 6 months of band and/or lessons to get the free bass. Please call for details.

• Referral Credit - We are offering our Referral Credit Program for the summer. If you refer a new student, you will receive a $5 credit each month, as long as each of you continues with lessons.
Click here for details. If you refer someone that signs up for one of the specials, you will start receiving your referral credits when they finish their special, and begin regular lessons.

• Vocal Recording Special - We recorded over 20 of the Birkdale Sing contestants last month, so we have decided to offer a basic recording package for all vocalists for $25, which can be used as a Christmas Gift CD, an audition CD, or a song to post online on YouTube, Facebook, or MySpace. Recording time is available most early afternoons and evenings. Please call for details.

• Recording Special - 10% off recording projects of two hours or more. This includes audio recordings in the Treynorth studio, as well as audio or video recordings at the Palace. Make your own CD or DVD this summer!

Over the next 45 days, you can submit your votes for your favorite contestant. After the first 45 days, the top vote getters for each 2011 Sing Location will compete against each other at a performance in the fall to go on to the national finals.
