September News

Hello everyone! We’re now into the swing of fall lessons, it has been so nice seeing everyone back! Below are a few reminders about fall lessons, please let me know if you have any questions about these reminders.

Halloween Recitals: Our Halloween Recitals will be on Sunday October 6th. We will be having two recitals again this year, the times will be 2:00pm and 4:30pm. Recital times are on a first come, first serve basis, so please contact me ASAP to sign you/your student up for the time you would like.

Business Hours: Fall business hours are Saturday/Sunday/Monday/Tuesday 12:00-7:00pm. NSMA is closed all other days and times.

Invoicing: Invoices will be sent out the 3rd week of the month and tuition is due the first lesson of each month. There is a grace period until the 10th of the month, if payment has not been received by the 10th of the month a $10.00 late fee will be assessed.

Dropping off checks: If you are dropping off a check and it is not you/your student’s lesson time, please use the secure white drop box attached to the mailbox. Please do not come up to the house, ring the doorbell or enter the house if it is not during posted business hours.

Maternity leave: I will be on maternity leave Oct. 30-Jan. 31. I will be resuming lessons Feb. 1 with the same schedule as this fall. If I need to start my maternity leave for medical reasons sooner than Oct. 30, I will let you know as soon as is possible and go over the next steps at that time.

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