Hello everyone! Welcome to the mid-way point in our 2020 Fall Semester. Things are a bit crazy for everyone with Zoom this and Zoom that, but I appreciate everyone sticking with piano/voice lessons this fall – I know it will be worth it!

Halloween Recital: Our 2020 Halloween Recital will be a VIRTUAL recital held online on our private NSMA YouTube channel. Students have already picked out their recital songs and are working hard on them – when mastered, students will create a music video/movie production of their song! Videos will be sent to me via email or the free Dropbox file sharing app, and then I’ll post those on our private YouTube channel for viewing. More specific information was sent out at the end of September, please contact me if you have any questions!

YES To Lessons: We DO have lessons on all Monday and one-day holidays!! That means we DO have lessons on Monday 10/12 (Columbus Day). Please let me know if you/your student will not be attending lessons on those dates, the normal cancelation policy does still apply.
