Support NSA

make a difference today

Volunteers make a difference in the everyday life of our school. And your donations are an investment in our students' education by making it possible for students to receive assistance for specialized trainings, crucial tools such as dance wear, art supplies, sheet music and technical equipment. Get involved today.

Volunteer at NSA

All NSA performing arts conservatories have concerts, recitals, readings and performances throughout the year and each event needs support. Each of our conservatory leads are more than happy to receive help from parents in making preparations for these events. Contact information for each of our professionals can be found on the Teachers and Staff page.

Opportunities to Volunteer

  • If you have an hour or two a week, NSA needs volunteers to make copies for staff, freeing teachers up to spend more time on lesson planning.
  • Parents may volunteer to help monitor the entrances to the building to welcome and say good bye to our students each day.
  • Parents are needed to help run the school supply store during lunch time.

All parents volunteering during the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. must check in and out with the front office.

If you have any questions about volunteering for the school in general, please contact Jeremy Lee in the front office at or 615-299-6600.
