Once again, the Student Showcase was a great success. Thank you to all of the students who performed and to their families and friends for attending the Showcase and showing their support. We had two separate video contests connected with the April Showcase. The winner of the raffle for posting a performance video on NSM's Facebook page is Andre Muteba. He won one month of free music lessons. The winner of the most viewed video is Sandiv Wijesiriwardane with 444 views of his performance video. He also wins one month of free music lessons. Congratulations to you both!
STUDENT PHOTO DAY Copies of the professional student photos that were taken by Inner Vision Images before and after the Showcase are now available to students and parents of students. If you or your child had a photo taken, please contact the office and we’ll e-mail copies in .jpg format to you. Again, these are free to you as a “thank you” for being a student at NSM.

Do you think your child could use some motivation to practice ? We are now offering The Musical Ladder System. Students will work with their instructor to work their way up the musical ladder system. Their rewards will be different colored wristbands, trophies, and certificates for certain milestones. This new and exciting program is free to all NSM students. To learn more about how the system can help your child to get better grades, improved confidence and self-esteem, please speak with any office staff member or your instructor.
Saturday Workshops The Saturday workshops are an additional musical activity that NSM offers to our students. Students can register to participate in any workshop by purchasing a spot on the schedule through the Administration Office. Also, if a student misses their private lesson for any reason, they may register to participate in a workshop at NO CHARGE. Workshops may be attended to offset missing lessons while on vacation as well.
