NUTLEY SCHOOL OF MUSIC NEWSLETTER
ROCK SHOW RECORDING DAY
Nutella. Dabbing. Mr. Tom's back issues. These are just a few of the unique topics our students are singing about in their original Rock Show songs!
On May 19, all of our talented rock bands visited Sound on Sound Studios in Montclair so they could each participate in the experience of creating a professionally recorded version of their original Rock Show composition.
"Cool", "Fun", and "A great experience" were just a couple of the terms students used to describe the opportunity to have professional recording engineers guide them through the process.
Sound on Sound Studios is a brand new, spacious recording facility, featuring state of the art equipment, that offers a full range of in-house audio and event services, able to handle everything from a single vocalist to a large ensemble.
If your would like to book a recording session, contact Tony Drootin at (212) 944-5770 or visit their website .

GIVE DAD THE GIFT OF MUSIC!
Does Dad really need a new tie for Father's Day, or could he be brushing up on his guitar licks instead? Rather than the same old gifts for Dad this year, how about giving him the gift of music for Father's Day! You or your loved one may purchase gift certificates for as little as one lesson, all the way up to one month, or even on an ongoing basis!
We offer lessons in piano, guitar, voice, drums, bass, and all band and orchestral instruments. Instruments are available for purchase or rental.
Contact Nutley School of Music today at (973) 667-7155 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
PET OF THE MONTH
Bogey is an adorable 3-year-old Shihtzu, and our latest Pet of the Month. Bogey's humans both take singing lessons with Mr. Edwin, with Gabriella focusing on pop music, and Gigi practicing singing musical theater tunes. And while Bogey really enjoys listening to Gabriella and Gigi practice their singing, he also likes long walks, belly rubs, and cheese, not necessarily in that order.
