August News

Hello everyone! As we are winding down our Summer Semester, I am eagerly anticipating our 2021 Fall Semester here at NSMA! I cannot wait – almost everyone will be back to in-person lessons!! Below are some very important reminders and updates for this month and looking ahead for the fall semester.

Important Dates:

Tuesday August 10th – end of the Summer Semester.

Sunday August 15th – start of the Fall Semester.

Thursday August 19th – NSMA closed and no lessons, Thursday students will begin their Fall Semester the following week on August 26th.

Monday September 7th – YES WE HAVE LESSONS on Labor Day.

Covid-19 Update: I have now been fully vaccinated and am open for in-person voice lessons on a limited basis. In-person voice lessons will only be given to students who have also been full vaccinated, vaccination cards must be provided on both sides if needed. Piano lessons will continue to be offered in-person and voice lessons for unvaccinated people will remain online. I am in direct contact with the lead Infection Preventionist at Bartlett Regional Hospital to ensure that we take every precaution and that the studio is safe for all who have in-person lessons.

Tuition Payment Reminder: Tuition payments are due at 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 physical payments with your student at lesson, send 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 have extremely limited openings for new students for the Fall Semester, and I do have also a wait list started for the fall. Please contact us at or (907) 500-7455 for more information.

Music Around Town: 

We had a live singing performance last month! The Juneau Lyric Opera Singfest on July 31st was a rousing success and it sure felt great to be doing live music in public again. I hope to be able to have live music and theater performances to add back into my monthly updates again soon!!
