REGISTER FOR CLASS/Lessons Classes and lessons fill up fast and due to limited class sizes, please make sure to fill out our online form to ensure your space in class and lessons today!  

MAKE UP POLICY As a courtesy to our VIBES families, any classes cancelled due to educator illness will be re-scheduled or or will have a substitute teacher fill-in for the original class time. Private lessons cancelled by an instructor will always be rescheduled and the front desk administrators will contact you to set up your individual time.

Due to limited studio time, there are no refunds for student absences in classes or private lessons. Please contact us if you have a question, a special circumstance or need. We are more than happy to work with you!

EXTRA REHEARSALS & CONCERT DATES  As we get closer to the end of the semesters, there will be an extra rehearsal for students to prepare for their concerts. There will be two performances each school year; a winter recital and a spring recital! Families will know well in advance concert dates and times to accommodate for busy schedules.

ENTERING THE CLASSROOM Plan to arrive about 5-10 minutes early for classes or private lessons.  

PARTICIPATION  The understanding, sensitivity and consistency of the parent or caregiver at home are the key to facilitating musical learning and growth!  Children need the support, patience, positivity, and a practice schedule at home. Students who practice at least 10 minutes every day are 100% more successful. The more a student practices at home the faster they will find happiness and joy in their playing. The confidence a child receives from a successful musical experience will not only contribute to their music skills but will contribute to all aspects in life.

MATERIALS All students are required to have an instrument for classes. Students will also need a pencil, cleaning materials, and method book or sheet music.

DURING STUDIO CLASSES Parents and non-enrolled siblings may wait quietly in the lobby area during class times but will not be able to come into the studio class area.  Special circumstances will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Please contact VIBES Fine & Performing Arts with any special needs or requests.

CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR Our classes provide your child with a safe place for learning. We strive to be the very best we can be and ask that our students also do their very best everyday! If a child begins to explore a behavior which poses a danger to themselves or others in class we will ask them to take a small break so they may redirect their energy. To create the best environment for all children, if a child continues to not make poor choices we will call his or her parents and that child will need to be picked up immediately. Although we are happy to partner with you and help you find workable, meaningful solutions for behaviors you wish to eliminate, our staff is not responsible for disciplining your child. Please feel free to contact us anytime to request any support you may need.

FOOD, DRINKS, AND PHONES No food or drinks allowed in our studio area. We ask that students kindly silence their cell phones while in class.

CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS Music is a help in neurological, physical, emotional, social and cognitive development. We ask that parents talk with the teacher so that we may learn more about your child, and together we can make a decision about how to proceed.

VISITORS Adult guests such as grandparents and your partner are welcome to watch during our special performance times.
