Hello everyone! This month we’ll return to a full schedule here at NSMA for the beginning of our 2020 Fall Semester. All continuing students should be registered for the fall semester and will be receiving confirmation emails with the lesson day/time for the fall, please make sure you confirm and pay the August tuition bill by August 15th to reserve your time slot! Below are some important reminders for this month.

2020 Summer/Fall Semesters: The last day of the 2020 Summer Semester is Tuesday August 11th and the first day of the 2020 Fall Semester is Sunday August 16th. PLEASE NOTE: this may/may not be the same week that the JSD starts the 2020/21 school year. Please mark your calendars accordingly!!

Tuition Payment Reminder: Tuition payments are due the first lesson of every month with a grace period until the 10thof the month. If tuition is received after the 10thof 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 any time in the secure white drop box attached to the mailbox post. Please do not come up to the studio to drop off payment if it is not your student's lesson time, and please do not come up to the main house for any reason. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

New Students: We do have limited availability for new students and also have a wait list started for lessons for the 2020 Fall Semester. As of August 13th, we have room for new homeschool students! Please contact us at or (907) 500-7455 for more information.

Music Around Town: I normally have a section where I list all of the musical and performing events around town, but sadly none of these are currently being held. I look forward to the future when we can all enjoy musical events together again.

In parting, I again want to thank all of my clients for your continued support and understanding as we work through these times together. Music is a special gift to all of us, and I thank you all for continuing to make music an important part of your life!!
