September News

Hi everyone! We are now a little over a week into fall lessons, it is so nice to see everyone again! I am pleased to say NSMA is again fully booked! If you are a potential new student, I do have a wait list started. Please contact me if you would like more information about lessons and how to get placed on the wait list.

I am very much looking forward to this fall! We will have two performance opportunities for students, a Halloween concert in October and a Winter concert in December.

October/Halloween Concert – NSMA will be having a Halloween concert Sunday October 30th. It will be held at the Egan Lecture Hall at UAS at 2:00pm. If we have enough interest, I will hold two separate concerts to accommodate the number of people performing like we did for the spring recitals. More information to follow soon on how to get signed up for the Halloween Concert – just know that to participate, students must dress in costume!

Reminder: We DO have lessons on ALL Monday holidays! That means we have do lessons on Monday Sept. 5th. Please call or email me if you know you/your student will not be attending lessons on that day.
