An integral part of music study is the opportunity for performance. Performances will occur both in the classroom and for the public. These dates will be communicated on the website and in family emails.
Musical progress is determined by consistent practice goals. The choir is only as good as the effort of its members, so students will be expected to work on music and skills outside of Glee Club.
SONG CHOICE & CURRICULUM
Lionheart Music Studio utilizes reputable curriculum as well as customized supplemental materials for each class and student. The teacher will determine songs based on the following criteria:
*Musically accessible to current Glee Club singers.
*Family-friendly lyrics and themes
Students are welcome to submit personal song choices with the understanding that not all songs will be used in Glee Club.
INSUFFICIENT CLASS ENROLLMENT
Group classes are comprised of 2+ students. Should any class have insufficient enrollment on an ongoing basis, the studio reserves the right to cancel the class, adjust the tuition or alter the duration of the class.
CLASSROOM & PERFORMANCE ETIQUETTE
All Glee Club members will be held to high behavioral standards. Students are expected to follow the 3 Glee Club Rules:
*Listen and Follow Directions
*Give Your Best Effort
These expectations apply anytime the student is acting on behalf of the Glee Club.
Attempts will always be made to maintain a healthy and respectful teaching environment. A student or family may be dismissed from the Glee Club if there are persistent absences, uncooperative or abusive behaviors, delinquent in tuition or a significant lack of progress due to disinterest.
If a student must withdraw from Glee Club, two weeks tuition and notice is required.
