December News

Hello everyone and Happy Holidays!! We are in the final stretch of our 2023 Fall Semester here at NSMA, and as December is always a VERY busy month, please make sure you are aware of these important dates!!

Winter Holiday Recital: Our next recital will be our annual Winter Holiday Recital on Saturday December 16 3:00-5:00pm at the UAS Egan Library. All students participating need to be there by 2:45pm – please remember to dress in red/green/holiday outfits (accessories encouraged!!!). All students are encouraged to participate and/or come and watch as an audience member!!

Winter Break: There will be NO LESSONS Friday December 22nd through Monday January 15th.

2024 Spring Semester: The 2024 Spring Semester will begin on Tuesday January 16th. We will have the same schedule as we have had in the fall.

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 2024 Spring Semester! Please contact us at or (907) 500-7455 for more information.
