August News

Hello everyone! We’re now winding down the summer and we’ve got three weeks left until school starts, but what a great summer it’s been!! Everyone should now be signed up for fall lessons and have been emailed lesson start dates and times for fall lessons, if you have not yet received that information please let me know.

Fall Lessons: The fall semester will begin Monday August 19th. I will be teaching Mondays/Tuesdays/Saturdays/Sundays 12:00-7:00pm.

Halloween Recital: Yes, it is only August and we’re already thinking about the Halloween Recital! Due to my maternity leave starting at the beginning of November (and possibly earlier!), we will be having the Halloween Recital on Sunday October 6th (exact times TBA). Please mark this on your calendars as it is three weeks earlier than usual!!

Reminders: Please do not come up to the house if it is not during business hours. Business hours for the summer are Saturdays 12:00-7:00pm and Mondays 12:00-7:00pm. Business hours for the fall are Sat/Sun/Mon/Tue 12:00-7:00pm. NSMA is closed all other days and times. If you need to drop off a check, there is a white, secure drop box attached to the mailbox post. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as this is not only my place of business, it is also my home.

If you are a potential new student and are interested in lessons, my schedule is now full for fall lessons. Please contact me at megan.e.felts@gmail.com for more information on NSMA and how to sign up on the wait list for fall lessons.
