TRY OUT WEEKEND GROUP CLASSES
Nutley School of Music is happy to announce we are now offering the opportunity to participate in Weekend Group Classes in addition to your private lessons. These fun group classes cover all instruments and all levels with music theory, ear training, rhythm (percussion), sight-reading, performance practice, music history, and music appreciation. And, this is a great way to fit in those hard to schedule make up lessons! One 50-minute group class will count as a make up lesson for a 30-minute private lesson missed for ANY reason. Even if you haven’t missed a lesson, existing students are welcome to come and try the class for free! Class size is limited to 10 students and grouped by grade, so click here to see the class schedule and sign up!

PET OF THE MONTH
Meet Nate (aka Nathan the Hotdog), our newest Pet of the Month. Nate is an almost 14 year-old-dachshund who enjoys napping in the warm sun, listening to the sweet sounds of Ed Sheeran, and looking super cool when he does. When he's not doing those things (although let's face it, Nate always looks cool) he enjoys listening to his human, Kait, practice her singing and watching her dance and do gymnastics.
