NSMS offers a variety of programs for children and adults, as well as performance and assessment opportunities. We are also experienced in working with students with special needs, and welcome this opportunity. NSMS enrolls students on an ongoing basis, schedule-permitting.


All prospective students receive an interview with our Admissions Director. This is a time for you to visit our school, learn more about our teaching approach, and ask questions. 

For children who are beginners, the interview will include an introductory sample lesson with our Admissions Director. For children who have studied piano previously, the interview will consist of a general evaluation of the student's playing, music-reading ability, and technical skills. For adult students, the interview focuses on learning more about your specific goals.
