October News

Hello everyone! I can’t believe how fast this fall is going as it’s October already and we’re getting closer to the end of lessons for this year due to my maternity leave! We have our Halloween Recitals coming up this next weekend, everyone who is performing should know which recital they are in at this point.

Reminders about Recitals: If you are performing, please be there NO LATER than 15 minutes prior to your recital time (i.e.: 2:00pm recital time means be there no later than 1:45pm). This ensures that we will be able to start the recitals promptly and on time. If you are not performing in a recital, please feel free to come and watch one or both of them! The recitals will be held at UAS in the Egan Lecture Hall, room 112, Sunday Oct. 6th at 2:00pm and 4:30pm. We will have a reception after each recital to celebrate our students’ successful performances!

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.

Substitute Teacher Over Maternity Leave: I am happy to announce that NSMA will be having Janis Capelle, an incredible vocal and piano instructor and performer, coming up from Texas to cover lessons over my maternity leave Nov.-Jan. If you are a current NSMA student and want to continue with lessons with Jan over my maternity leave, please email or call me to get more information. If you are currently on the NSMA wait list or are a potential new student, please also feel free to email or call me to get information on how to get signed up for lessons with Jan.

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 and/or 4th week of the month (a minimum of 7 days prior to the due date) 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.

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 lessons.
