August News

Hello everyone! We are now winding down our Summer Semester here at NSMA and will begin our Fall Semester August 17th. I have enjoyed working with the summer students and look forward to seeing everyone back for the fall! When the Fall Semester begins, I will be sending home and emailing a Fall Newsletter – below are a few of the highlights from that letter.

Summer/Fall Semesters: The 2016 Summer Semester ends Tuesday 8/14. The 2016 Fall Semester begins Wednesday 8/17. All continuing students should now be registered for lessons, please contact me asap with any questions.

Summer Business Hours: Sat 12:00-4:00, Sun 12:00-7:00, Mon 1:00-7:00, closed all other days.

Fall Business Hours: Sat/Sun 12:00-7:00, Mon/Tue 1:00-7:00, Wed 3:00-7:00, closed Thur/Fri. Hours will be posted on the front door, please do not come up to the house if it is not during the posted business hours.

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.

New Students: If you are a potential new student and are interested in lessons, I have two more openings left for the fall semester! Please contact me at for more information on NSMA and how to sign up for lessons.

Music Around Town:

Perseverance Theatre will be performing ‘Peter and the Starcatcher’ 8/19-9/18. Tickets and more information are available on their website,

That's all for now! Thank you all for continuing to make music an important part of your life!!
