July News

Hello everyone! We are officially half-way through our 10-week summer semester, my how time flies! I have to say that I am looking forward to the 4th of July, it is one of my favorite Juneau holidays because the whole town turns out to celebrate. I hope to see some of you at (or in!) the parade this year! Below are a few updates and reminders for NSMA for this month.

Fall Pre-Registration for Continuing Students: Pre-Registration for the Fall 2015 semester for continuing students is open July 1st. I have sent all continuing students an email with the necessary information and paperwork, summer students will also receive these in hard copy at their next lesson. You can also download the paperwork online via the Current Students/Documents tabs. Please Note: the deadline for Pre-Registration is July 31st.

Fall Registration: The open registration begins August 1st for new students starting lessons in the 2015 summer semester and for those on my wait list.

New Students: If you are a potential new student and are interested in lessons, I have a wait list started for the fall semester. Please contact me at megan.e.felts@gmail.com for more information on NSMA and how to sign up for the wait list.
