Hello everyone! We’re nearing the half-way point in our 2024 Spring Semester. This is a busy month for us here at NSMA, please read through these updates and reminders carefully and double check your calendars to make sure everything is written down correctly!

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 St. Patrick’s Day 3/17, Easter Sunday/Monday 3/31 and 4/1, Mother’s Day 5/12. Please contact me asap if you/your student will not be attending lessons that day, the normal cancelation policy will still apply.

Spring Recital: The final recital of the 2023/24 school year will be our annual Spring Recital on Saturday May 18th 3:00-5:00pm at Chapel by the Lake Church. I will be sending out an email in April with more details regarding the recital, all students are encouraged to participate and/or come and watch as an audience member!!

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.
