NSU Music Academy accepting students for spring semester


The NSU Music Academy is accepting students for the spring semester. The academy is under the direction of Northwestern State Assistant Professor of Piano Dr. John Price and Associate Professor of Piano Dr. Francis Yang and offers piano, guitar and percussion lessons for students from age six as well as adults.  Due to COVID 19, lessons are taught face to face or online.

Northwestern State students in the Dear School of Creative and Performing Arts provide lessons. The teachers are piano majors Shihuan Wang, Claudia Musgrove, David Paz and Hannah Potter, guitar major Naydu Daza Maya and percussion major Jackson Forrester.

Last semester, academy students performed in a virtual Halloween Concert and Christmas recital. Students in past years participated in the National Federation of Music Clubs Festival, the Central Music Teachers’ Association Sonatina Festival and the Louisiana Music Teachers Association Upper Elementary Auditions.
