Well, today is February 8th and AWSOM is officially a one year old business! What an amazing first year it has been, with so many great things to look back on, great reviews from students, some fantastic stories, and multiple outstanding recitals! And with all the wonderfulness, we have also learned some great lessons that will help AWSOM continue to grow and thrive in its second year.
Our first year saw us teach just shy of 5,000 lessons, an incredible feat! This coming year, we have plans to teach 8,500 lessons by increasing our teachers from 3 to 6. Our first year saw lessons being offered on piano and guitar with John Hart and Michaud Savage joining our school as Seattle’s best teachers. This coming year, we have plans to introduce violin and trumpet lessons to our growing mix of instruments. Also in the plans are many exciting competitions, a new Youtube channel with music tutorials, a growing online lesson program and much more!
One thing that we don’t plan on changing though is our commitment to excellent teaching in the comfort of your home. We hear from families every day, astounded that there is a music school that will come to their home to offer lessons, and all for a reasonable price. While the year ahead will see continued growth for AWSOM, we don’t plan on changing our small family like style to the way we run it. We want you to know as always that if you have any questions or concerns, you are more than welcome to contact your teacher, Andrew, or Kim in the office at any time.
We are thankful to each of you who are currently learning with AWSOM, you have all truly made this a fun filled first year for our music school. There’s many music teachers in the Seattle area, and it is an immense privilege that you have chosen us to learn music with. Thank you.
Here’s to a very exciting year ahead together!
