Friday Update 8/21/21

Hey, Friends!

The opening of our 2021/2022 season is quickly approaching and we are getting excited to see all of you soon! We hope to see many of you at Open House next week, so be sure to check the schedule and plan to attend! Here's the latest...

Communication Update - We hope you are reading this in your email, however some of you have reported problems receiving our emails. If you are not getting your Studio J PAC emails in your inbox or if they are going to your spam or junk, please note the following... We have been alerted by our program that handles emails that this is a technical issue for many of their clients. Here are some ways you can make sure you get our emails: If you entered an email address to your account that is: Yahoo, SBCGlobal, AOL, AT&T, or Verizon you may want to add a secondary email that is from a different carrier (eg. gmail). AND Check your spam and junk folders and mark our email address as "important" or "safe." We want to make sure you are getting the most up-to-date information as quickly and efficiently as possible. Getting emails, joining your classes band app, and following and checking our social media pages are the fastest way to get Studio J PAC info. We hope this helps!


Enrollment 2021/2022 - You should have received class confirmations last week (unless newly enrolled). Let us know right away if you need us to make any changes. We will continue working through our waitlists and will inform you of spots as they open - be sure your contact info is current. You may also want to be sure you have a current card on file - auto payments will begin on September 15, and will run on the 5th of every month thereafter.


Open House - This is a come-and-go event - join us on your scheduled day between 5:00-8:00pm to meet the teachers, have shoe fittings, and purchase your class attire! (You will need to have your student with you to purchase shoes as sizing is not standard.) Here is the link to Studio J dress code:

The Open House schedule is as follows:

Aug 23 (Mon) 5:00-8:00pm - Student's last name beginning with A-D

Aug 24 (Tues) 5:00-8:00pm - Student's last name beginning with E-K

Epic Learning Fund - Studio J continues to be an Epic Vendor, however there have been significant changes to the process. Epic is implementing a new system and there will be a short lapse in their ability to approve and pay for services. If you plan to use Epic Learning Funds for Studio J classes, you must complete this Google form and then await confirmation by email on when Epic payments will go into affect. Please be aware, parents are responsible for all payments prior to approval, and following the depletion of Epic funds. You are also responsible for paying your monthly performance fee, so you must have a current card on file for auto pay. Here is the link to the form:


Band App - In order to receive updates, critical info specific to your student's class, and direct communication from your instructor including pics and video, we urge all of our parents and older students to use the Band App. Please start watching for your email invitations to join your specific classes. You will need to have downloaded the Band App on your device prior to accepting the invitation. Here are the links to get the app:
