NMS Online

Through the NMS Online Learning program students from across the country can enjoy exceptional music lessons from the comfort of their home!

How does it work?

Four Simple Steps:

  • Technology Check – do you have a computer with working microphone and camera and a broadband internet connection?
  • Instrument and Curiosity Check – do you already have an instrument in good working order? Are you ready to sing, play, act or read music better?
  • Email nmsonline@nmsnewhaven.org to set up your FREE 30 minute introductory lesson with an exceptional instructor.
