July News

Hello everyone! It seems as though summer has just begun, and yet, here we are already in July! And here at NSMA that means registration for fall lessons! Yes, I know it seems early, but Pre-Registration for Fall 2014 lessons for all 2014 Spring semester students is now open. Here are a few reminders of how registration works:

Fall 2014 Pre-Registration: All students enrolled in lessons for the 2014 Spring Semester are eligible for Pre-Registration for Fall 2014 lessons. All students enrolled in the 2014 Spring Semester who Pre-Registrer in July will be guaranteed a spot in my fall schedule (barring scheduling issues). Pre-Registration is July 1 – 31.

New Summer 2014 Students: Incoming students enrolled in Summer 2014 lessons will be able to register for lessons August 1 on a space available basis.

New Students: If you are a potential new student and are interested in lessons, my schedule for is currently full and I have a wait list started. 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.

Registration Documents: The current 2014 Returning Student Fall Registration form and 2014 Studio Policies are available for download under the Documents tab.

Summer Business Hours: Saturdays 12:00-4:00pm, Sundays 12:00-7:00pm, and Mondays 11:30am-7:00pm. I will hold lessons, have meetings, answer emails and phone calls during this time. Please do not come up to the house if it is not during posted business hours. Thank you.

Tuition Payment Reminder: Tuition Payments are due the first lesson of every month with a grace period until the 10th of the month. If tuition is received after the 10th of the month, a $10.00 late fee will be assessed. Please drop off your payment with your student at lesson, send the payment in the mail or you can drop it off anytime in the secure white drop box attached to the mailbox. Please do not come up to the house to drop off payment if it is not during your student's lesson time. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
