August News

Hello everyone! Welcome to fall lessons here at NSMA, albeit a little earlier than we normally start the fall semester! I am looking forward to seeing everyone back to lessons this month. As you know, I am expecting my second child on Aug. 30 and will be taking two months maternity leave this fall, so we have a lot of things that will be different from our normal fall semester this year. Please read through the information carefully and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have!

Fall Update Letter: I will be handing out a Fall Update Letter this week to all students. PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY as it contains very important information for this fall (information on: maternity leave, all 2017/18 recital dates, which holidays we have lessons and which we don’t, Thanksgiving and Winter Breaks). I will also be emailing it to all clients and it is posted on my website under the Current Students/Documents tabs. Please contact me asap with any questions regarding the information in the letter.

Maternity Leave: I am expecting to take my maternity leave Sept. 1 – Nov. 3. Please see the Fall Update Letter for more information.

Fall Scheduling: If you have any issues with your current assigned day/time for you/your student’s lessons, please contact me ASAP to inquire about alternative scheduling arrangements. I cannot guarantee that I will be able to make changes, but I will do my best.

Fall Business Hours: Sat/Sun 12:00-7:00pm, Mon/Tue 12:00-7:00pm, Wed 2:00-7:00pm. Closed Thur/Fri. Please do not come up to the house during non-business hours. All hours are posted on the front door. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

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.

New Students for the Fall Semester: I have very limited openings for new students for the 2017 Fall Semester and expect to be fully booked by the end of the first week of this month. If you are interested in signing up for lessons, please contact me immediately to inquire about lesson time availability. I will also have a wait list started for the fall semester so in the event I am unable to get new students in for lessons, I can put them on the wait list for when I have openings in my schedule.
