October News

Hello everyone! It’s a blustery fall here at NSMA and we’re already in the thick of the 2023 Fall Semester. We’ve got a lot on the horizon, so please read these updates and reminders carefully and make sure all dates are on your calendars!

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.

YES to Lessons: We DO have lessons on almost every 1-day holiday and all school inservice and parent/teacher conference days! We DO have lessons on Monday 10/9, Monday 10/16, Tuesday 10/17, and Wednesday 10/18. Please contact me asap if you/your student will not be attending lessons that day, the normal cancelation policy will still apply.

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 megan.e.felts@gmail.com or (907) 500-7455 for more information.
