Pre-Requisite: Auditions will be held for all new and returning students. Please contact CSM administration to book your audition time.
Co-Requisite: Students must be enrolled in private vocal lessons at Chinook School of Music.
Regular attendance is required in order to get the most out of the program. Students may miss a maximum of two classes per year.
Students are expected to prepare at least two memorized songs for each open mic or performance class.
Music must be handed into the accompanist a minimum of 4 weeks prior to each open mic or performance class.
Students must organize a minimum of one rehearsal with their accompanist outside of regular class time before each open mic. Rehearsals and performances are subject to accompanist fees.
Consistent practice is expected. Students are responsible for communicating with their private instructors the song selections that need to be worked on and prepared.
Students are reminded that they are representing Chinook School of Music at their community open mic performances and are asked to choose appropriate attire. Students are encouraged to preserve their own sense of style on stage and are reminded that the choice of outfit should “add” to the performance and not distract (no low cut tops or very short skirts).
