March News

Hello everyone! Spring is on it’s way to North Star Music Academy! This will be a busy month with the Juneau School District Spring Break Saturday March 19 – Sunday March 27. NSMA will be offering optional lessons that week Monday – Thursday, at this point I believe I have contacted everyone regarding Spring Break plans. If there are any last-minute changes, please contact me asap so I can do my best to accommodate everyone’s needs!

North Star Music Academy is currently fully booked with 55 students, but if you are a new potential student and are thinking about signing up for lessons, I do have a wait-list started! Please contact me to find out more information on how the wait-list works and how to get your name on it.

Reminders: We DO have lessons on ALL early release days and on ALL Monday holidays! If you are unsure about whether you have a lesson or not on a certain day, please call or email me to double-check!

April Vocal Workshop: NSMA is putting together another vocal workshop Sunday, April 10 3:00-6:00pm. This workshop is open to all of my voice students.
