October News

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great fall so far, I’m excited for the first recital of the school year, our Halloween Recital! I think it’s going to be a great recital, we’ve got some spooky songs as well as some fun ones – I’m sure the costumes will be fantastic as well. Below are a few reminders for this month.

Halloween Recital: Our Halloween Recital is Sunday 10/23 at 3:00pm at Aldersgate Church. All students participating should now be registered for the recital – please dress in costume to match your song, and if staying for the reception, please bring a plate of finger food to share. All are welcome and encouraged to come as audience members, and please contact me with any questions.

Halloween Day/Columbus Day: Halloween 10/31 and Columbus Day 10/10 both fall on a Monday this year! We DO have lessons as regularly scheduled on both of those days. If you/your student will not be attending lessons on either day, please let me know in advance, and the regular cancelation policy will still apply.

Fall Business Hours: Sat/Sun 12:00-7:00, Mon/Tue 1:00-7:00, Wed 3:00-7:00, closed Thur/Fri. Hours are 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 $25.00 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.

Piano Tuning: Cameron Cartland of Alaska Piano Services will be coming to Juneau October 17-21 to tune pianos. Pianos should be tuned once a year. If you are interested in getting your piano tuned, please contact Alaska Piano Services at www.alaskapiano.net for more information.

New Students: If you are a potential new student and are interested in lessons, I have only one opening available for new students! I also have a wait list started, please contact me at megan.e.felts@gmail.com for more information on NSMA and how to sign up for lessons or for the wait list.
