September News

Hello everyone! Welcome back to fall lessons here at NSMA. We’re a few weeks into our 2023 Fall Semester and I’m enjoying seeing everyone back and meeting our new students. Below are some important reminders for this month as well as looking ahead to the rest of the fall.

Halloween Recital: The first recital of the 2023/24 school year is our annual Halloween Recital! The recital will be held on Saturday 10/28 3:00-5:00pm at the UAS Egan Library. All students interested in participating should contact me to sign up for the recital, there is a $15.00+ tax per performer fee, however there is no fee for audience members. All performers must dress up in Halloween costumes! Everyone is encouraged to come watch the recital! Please contact me if you have any questions.

Musical Theater Opportunity: I will be teaming up with Theater at Latitude 58 and the Juneau School District to be the vocal director for Rodger’s & Hammerstein’s musical “Cinderella.” Auditions will be Saturday September 2nd 10am-3pm at the Floyd Dryden Middle School. This is open to everyone 10 and up, including adults! Please contact me for more information if you/your student might be interested in participating!!

MASKS: Masks are now optional! As long as the student is healthy and free of symptoms, masks are optional. We ask that students who are sick with more than minor symptoms stay home (fever, bad cough, throwing up, etc.), students with minor symptoms of a cough or runny nose can attend lessons, but we do ask that they wear a mask while symptomatic.

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 studio entrance. 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 openings for new students for the 2023 Fall Semester! Please contact us at or (907) 500-7455 for more information.
