August News

Hello everyone! The summer semester here at NSMA is coming to a close, but I am excited for the beginning of the fall semester this month! I’m looking forward to seeing returning students and meeting incoming students. Below are a few important reminders for this month.

Fall Semester: The 2015 Fall Semester begins Saturday August 22nd. All students should now be signed up for a lesson day/time, please contact me with any questions you might have.

NSMA Closure: NSMA will be closed August 4 – 21. Lessons will resume for the start of the fall semester on August 22.

Fall Handout: There will be an important updates/reminders handout given to students at the start of the fall semester. Please make sure you get that information, it will also be posted later this month online under Current Students/Documents tabs.

New Students: If you are a potential new student and are interested in lessons, there are just a few openings available for new students and they are filling up quickly. I also have a wait list started for the fall semester for those who are not able to get lessons for the start of the fall semester. Please contact me at megan.e.felts@gmail.com for more information on NSMA and how to sign up for the fall semester or for the wait list.
