June News

Hello everyone! Welcome to summer here at NSMA, it was a wonderful end of the school year which was capped off with our annual Spring Recital. I’m so proud of all who performed!! We’ve got two months of a slower summer schedule before the Fall Semester begins in August, I hope all of us are able to get out and enjoy ourselves this summer. Here are a few important reminders for this month:

Summer Semester: The 2017 Summer Semester runs May 27 – July 31. Summer students – please let me know ASAP if you are going to miss any lessons in June or July (please see the summer cancelation policy for more information).

New Summer Students: If you are interested in summer lessons, I have only a few more spots available in my schedule. Please contact me for more information at megan.e.felts@gmail.com.

Fall Semester: The 2017 Fall Semester starts Tuesday August 1st. We will have no lessons September 1 – November 3 during my maternity leave. Lessons will resume at the same fall schedule on Saturday November 4.

Continuing Students Fall Registration: Registration is now OPEN for continuing students for the 2017 Fall Semester. Registration for continuing students ENDS JUNE 30, so please make sure you get your lesson day/time requests in to me sooner rather than later to ensure that you/your student has a guaranteed spot in my fall schedule!!

Fall Registration for New Students: I currently have a wait list for incoming new students for the 2017 Fall Semester. If you are interested in starting lessons in the fall, contact me ASAP for more information on how to get on the list. I expect to be completely full for the fall by the first week of July.

Summer Business Hours: Saturday 1:30-6:00pm, Sunday 12:30-7:00pm, Monday 12:00-7:00pm, closed all other days.

YES to Lessons: This is your friendly reminder that we DO have lessons on all one-day holidays, which includes Father’s Day on Sunday June 18. If you/your student is going to miss lessons on that day, please let me know as soon as possible, and the regular summer cancelation policy does still apply.

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 downstairs in the studio 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.
