February News

Hello everyone! We’re now in February and into our spring semester here at NSMA! This month we will be having our first vocal workshop of the year and I’m looking forward to it!

Please note: There will be no lessons Saturday 2/18 – Monday 2/20. I will be out of town for the holiday weekend. Please contact me with any questions.

Vocal Workshop: Sunday 2/5 3:00-6:00pm Yoga for Singing workshop. Cost to participate is $15.00. By now everyone should be registered for the workshop – if you haven’t registered yet or have questions about the workshop, please contact me!

If you are a potential new student, NSMA is currently fully booked, but we do have a wait list started for new students. Please contact me for more information on the wait list and how to get your name on it!
