Jammin' Newsletter - November 2018 Issue
A Message from Joe
As 2018 comes to an end, I reflect back on what an incredible year it has been! So many wonderful and talented students are a part of our family. Our Annual Showcase just keeps getting better and better and the new venue was a hit! The school is slowly but surely getting a ‘make-over’ with more benefits for our students coming in the future! Over the many years during my teaching career I’ve been able to see firsthand how music can transform a student’s life. I’ve seen students gain confidence, have their self esteem boosted, improve their focus, improve their grades and the list goes on. I am grateful that you have chosen Big Beat Music to be a part of your musical journey. All of us at Big Beat want to take a moment and wish you and your family a very healthy and happy holiday season! We are grateful to have you as part of our family. Until next year, remember to ‘Keep On Jammin’! – Joe Nevolo

Our Rock Star Achievement Program Continues to Inspire!
Rock Star Achievement Program
Rock Star Achievement Program
It is a proven system that helps students get excited about music and helps keep parents ‘informed’ as to how they are progressing. Similar to karate belt tests, every few months or so teachers will evaluate their students. As they progress they will receive one of these really cool wristbands for their level. They will also get trophies and other awards at certain levels as part of the “Merit System” we have already had in place. This type of program has been proven to inspire students, bring a smile to parents’ faces and we all feel proud of the progress being made!
