December News

Hello everyone! We are seriously into winter now with the amount of snow that we’ve had lately! As we’re heading into the last two weeks of lessons before Winter Break, here are a few things to keep in mind:

Winter Holiday Recitals: We will be having our annual Winter Holiday Recitals Sunday Dec. 16 at 3:00 and 5:30pm. Everyone should be signed up for a recital time now, the recitals will be held at our regular venue, the Egan Lecture Hall at UAS. Please contact me asap if you have any questions about the recitals!

Winter Break: Winter Break will be Thursday Dec. 20 – Sunday Jan. 6. Lessons will resume as usual Monday Jan. 7.

Tuition Reminder: Tuition is due the first lesson of every month, with a grace period until the 10th of each month. If tuition is not received by the 10th of the month, a $10.00 late fee will be applied. For your convenience, tuition can be sent in the mail, sent with students to their lessons, or put in the white drop box attached to the mailbox post.

If you are a potential new student and are interested in lessons, I do have a wait list for the spring. Please fill out the online Registration Form or contact me for more information on NSMA and how to get signed up for the wait list.

Music Around Town:

Juneau Lyric Opera will be having their annual Mid-Winter Vocal Festival 12/27 – 1/3 with a performance Friday 1/4. Also offered are Group Voice Lessons, Choosing Repertoire Lessons, and Private Lessons with Dr. Byron McGilvray and Jan Capelle. More information is available on their website,

The Juneau Arts and Humanities Council has a running list of community activities available online at

That's all for now! Thank you all for continuing to make music an important part of your life!!
