A Letter from Bernie.

To our wonderful supporters,

Doris and I greatly appreciate your support at this stressful time.

We intend to stay in business, and we hope many of our peers in the music industry can do. This is a tough time and we intend to stick around, with all of our team too. There is plenty you can do to help us and we ask you to get on board.

Could you consider helping us out by:
- Phoning us on 9872 5122 buy your books with post service, or for quick collection at the front desk.
- Encourage your students and friends to support local music stores.
- Show your support for our industry by sharing the social media posts from your favourite music shops, artists and music services.
- Make sure to follow our facebook page here
- Give us a review on google or facebook!
- If you are considering a new instrument soon or in the future, please phone us on 9872 5122 to chat about the current specials. We have “Private Showroom Appointments” – we have reduced access to the showrooms for your safety. We need your continued business.
- Piano carriers, piano tuners and other service people want to stay in business too. Give them a call to see what services they are still offering.

Please take some time to read the announcements below.

I believe that "Music is the medicine of the mind".  We need it now, more than ever. Please use this quiet time to make music every day. 

You can contact me any time by phoning 9872 5122 or 0418 348 162, or by emailing bernie@musicland.com.au

Best wishes,
Bernie Capicchiano
Managing Director.

Update 6th April 2020:

INSTRUMENT DELIVERIES

At this time, most piano carriers and instrument carriers are operating a normal service, so we are able to deliver instruments of any size, Australia wide.

Some of the carriers have implemented a process whereby they will ask you some precautionary questions before confirming your delivery. Please understand this is for everyone's safety and let us know if we can be of assistance by calling the team at Bernies on (03) 9872 5122.

JUNIOR MUSIC AT HOME (6 months to 5 years)

Our friends at Mini Maestros would like to offer a free online class to any families to make music at home! This fabulous junior music program is fun, engaging and builds a wonderful musical foundation for your youngster. Read more about Mini Maestros here

7 Benefits for Doing Mini Maestros Online

1. Moments of Joy 

Our online classes are a happy, warm and engaging space that provide moments of joy and learning for you and your child.

2. Bonding Time

They are designed for a parent or other carer and child to experience together, giving you valuable, focused bonding time.

3. Educating Parents & Carers

Our online classes are not a TV show to sit passively in front of. They require active participation from both child and adult, and are specifically designed to give parents or other carers knowledge and confidence on how to extend and enjoy our activities beyond the class time.

4. Do the Class Again & Again

Unlike a regular class, you can attend your weekly class again and again with the replay link.

5. Supporting Your Child’s Development 

Your objectives for enrolling in Mini Maestros in the first place continue to be satisfied. You will continue to support your child’s development and your child will continue to achieve his or her learning milestones.  When we resume in-person classes your child will be able to jump right back in with no catch-up required.

6. The Bulk of the Revenue Goes to Franchisees

The bulk of the revenue generated from the online classes goes directly to our family of Mini Maestros franchisees and will assist them to survive while we wait to return to in-person classes. A much smaller amount goes towards the cost of Mini Maestros Head Office providing the online service for you. Without enough people taking up this online solution, Mini Maestros as a whole may not survive these challenging times.  We have to survive so that we will continue to nurture confident young learners and can re-employ all our teachers as soon as possible.

7. Sing Your Heart Out in your Pyjamas!  You can do your classes in your pyjamas, sing your heart out and dance like no-one is watching!

Update 25th March 2020:

BERNIES MUSIC SCHOOL

For the remainder of Term 1, lessons will be delivered as usual, unless we have arranged directly with you. We ask you to wash your hands before entering the lesson room and practice social distancing where possible. 

If you do not attend your lesson, part of the Bernies Music Land Teacher Policy is for the teacher to call you during your allocated lesson time or attempt to call you, to pass on work that you had prepared for the lessons.

Term 2:

As a precautionary measure, the difficult decision has been made to delay the start of term 2. This means lessons will commence on the week of May 4th. It will be an 8 week term.  We believe this is a reasonable and fair aim, and will review again if the extreme circumstances change.

CLEANING YOUR INSTRUMENTS

The keys are the most important part of hygenically cleaning a piano, organ or keyboard. Generally speaking, the American Piano Tuners Guild states that most disinfecting wipes or sprays should be safe to use on the keys. Use alcohol-based disinfectants, and be careful to not use bleach-based disinfectants or any product containing citrus. You can read more on the website here
