January News

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! 2013 was a fantastic year for NSMA and our students, and for my own family with the birth of my son, Jackson, on Nov. 4th. I am so excited to see what 2014 has in store for us all!! Here are a few updates and reminders:

Maternity Leave: I am still on maternity leave – I will be back to work SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1st. We will be on the same lessons schedule as the fall. If you have any questions about when I return back to lessons or would like to inquire about switching your lesson day/time, please contact me ASAP!

Invoicing: I will be emailing each of my students individually over the next two weeks with a reminder on your start date in February as well as an emailed copy of February’s invoice. Most of you will have a credit on your account for the lessons I missed at the end of October, please let me know if you have any questions about that.

Business Hours: NSMA is closed until February 1st. If you need books or other materials, you must call or email me and see if you can set up a time to come by to pick up what you need. Otherwise, please do not come to the studio without making an appointment with me. Business hours starting February 1st will be Sat/Sun/Mon/Tue 12:00-7:00pm.

New Students: If you are a potential new student and are interested in lessons, my schedule for returning in February is full. 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.
