May News

Hello everyone! Spring is quickly turning towards summer, and I know we’re all starting to get that summer fever! We’ve got a busy three weeks with North Star Music Academy as we finish up our spring semester, so here are a few reminders of things that are happening:

Spring Recitals: Our Spring Recitals will be held Sunday, May 20th at 12:00pm and 2:30pm. If you haven’t already, please contact me ASAP to request a recital time for you/your student.

Summer Lessons: Our spring semester will end with our recitals on May 20th. There will be NO LESSONS May 21-June 9. Summer lessons begin June 10. If you haven’t already done so, please contact me ASAP to let me know whether you/your student will be taking summer lessons, and if yes, what days/times you would like to request for your lesson time.

Our Move: If you haven’t yet heard, NSMA will be moving to a new location this summer! We will be moving in June, just down the Back Loop from our current location. If you have any questions about how/when/where this will take place, please contact me, and I’ll do my best to have a smooth transition into our new studio.

If you are a potential new student, NSMA is currently accepting new students for the 2012 summer semester. Please fill out the Registration Form online, or call or email to find out more information on how to register.
