October News

Hello everyone! Welcome to the mid-way point in our 2020 Fall Semester. Things are a bit crazy for everyone with Zoom this and Zoom that, but I appreciate everyone sticking with piano/voice lessons this fall – I know it will be worth it! We’re coming up on our first recital of this school year and I think it has the makings of being a HIT! Below is more information on that as well as some reminders for this month.

Halloween Recital: Our 2020 Halloween Recital will be a VIRTUAL recital held online on our private NSMA YouTube channel. Students have already picked out their recital songs and are working hard on them – when mastered, students will create a music video/movie production of their song! Videos will be sent to me via email or the free Dropbox file sharing app, and then I’ll post those on our private YouTube channel for viewing. More specific information was sent out at the end of September, please contact me if you have any questions!

YES To Lessons: We DO have lessons on all Monday and one-day holidays!! That means we DO have lessons on Monday 10/12 (Columbus Day). Please let me know if you/your student will not be attending lessons on those dates, the normal cancelation policy does still apply.

Business Hours: Sundays/Mondays/Tuesdays 12:00-7:30pm, Wednesdays 2:00-7:30pm and Thursdays 12:30-7:30pm, closed all other days and times. Lessons will be held both online and in-person, please let me know if you have any questions regarding our COVID-19 safety precautions.

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 2021 Spring Semester. As of October 1st, we still have room for new students for the fall semester! Please contact us at megan.e.felts@gmail.com 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!!
