Youth - Group Piano - Program Information

Youth - Group Piano - Beginning

CMC has a two-year sequential curriculum for youth piano. Learning in a group setting is a fun way to introduce this fabulous instrument, while getting “hands on” experience, making new friends & gaining skills!

All piano classes are held in our piano lab using digital pianos that simulate acoustic grands. Access to a piano or keyboard is required for practice at home between classes. Limited rentals at CMC. CMC does not offer individual piano instruction.

 Sequential Classes – Piano Foundations Year 1 & 2,

followed by Piano Laboratory. Foundations classes are labeled by term (1-1 is first year, first term). Class titles change each term. Continuing students call the office for placement (823-3177). Clear two-year course curriculum – Students are equally matched for a successful group class experience. See the chart below for details. Piano Foundations use books in the Piano Adventures series (available at CMC). Progress Review – With the instructor’s guidance & approval, a student may repeat a term or advance. Two weeks before the end of each term the instructor makes evaluations & forwards them to the office staff. The family will be notified only if a change is required. Consistent Schedule – During the school year, students continue at the same day & time unless repeating a term or skipping ahead. Recital Opportunities - Playing music is better enjoyed when shared! While not a requirement, these performances connect us with others & increase confidence. Required Texts (available for purchase at CMC)

CMC Payment Policies Payment for CMC classes is due at the time of registration. If full payment is not possible for the student, a payment plan may be set up at no extra charge. The first payment of the plan is always due at the time of registration. Payment Plans For summer, the payment plan available to CMC students/families registering in person depends on the type of class enrolled: • Group classes meeting 5 weeks or less: Monthly payments, completed by the time class starts. • Group classes meeting 8-10 weeks: Monthly payments, completed by August 1st. • Private Lessons: Monthly payments, to be completed no later than the 1st of the last month the student is scheduled. Payment plans are scheduled on credit cards, which must have an expiration date past the date of the last payment. Those wishing cash or check payment plans, or needing a different schedule then the two standard plans, must sign a written agreement.

Instrument Rentals CMC has a limited number of violins, violas, cellos, basses, keyboards, flutes & guitars available for enrolled students to rent. Rental cost is $50 per term - payment is due at the time of rental. Scholarships are available. Rental process 1. Call the CMC office (503-823-3177) or use our online form* to get on a wait list for an instrument.

New this Summer: Flexible Scheduling for Lessons June 19-September 30 To accommodate vacations and summer camps, CMC offers flexible lesson scheduling in Summer Term to ensure students receive as many lessons as possible. Summer Term is broken up into two “Sessions”: Session A/B combined: June 19-August 26 Session C: September 5-30

How it works:

Fill out the application form on page 17 with your contact information, your child's instrument, length of lessons, and instructor, if known. Filling out the "Availability" section: aIf the day and time you can come is consistent each week, indicate that in SECTION A. In SECTION B, simply check the weeks you would like to be scheduled. You may indicate any deviations to your schedule in SECTION B. aIf the day and time you can come is different each week, skip SECTION A. Check off the weeks in SECTION B you CAN come & indicate your available time each week. Returning students: Consult the schedule on page 16 to find your teacher’s availability (subject to change). If you would like lessons with another instructor during weeks your teacher is away, check the box below section B. New students: Generally, we suggest new students begin lessons during the school year, which often allows for a more consistent experience. However, some families feel summer is the best time to begin. If this is the case, fill out an application form, but please contact the Program Coordinator to discuss your application. • Scheduling for Session A/B starts approximately May 15. Calls are made around June 5. Application by June 1 strongly recommended (not knowing all times available at the time of application is OK). After the start of the term, lessons may be scheduled on a space available basis. • Session C is ONLY available for returning CMC students, with priority to those continuing from Session A/B. Applications for Session C MUST be in no later than August 1 & schedules confirmed by mid-August. • If any changes come up after submitting the form, call the office. Once assigned, times & instructors are only valid though Summer.

Suzuki vs. non-Suzuki: which method should I choose? String Lesson Program students at CMC have a choice of two distinct ways of studying their instrument in weekly lessons. The age of the student, as well as how much the parent is able to attend lessons and work with the student at home will have a large part to play in making this choice. If you have questions about which method to choose, please call the CMC office (503-823-3177).

Non-Suzuki (Teacher/Student) Method: This is the classic one-to-one approach to learning an instrument. The string player will practice every day at home between lessons on assignments given by the instructor. Parent/guardian involvement is not required, however parents of students younger than about 10 are strongly encouraged to assist the child with athome practice. Parent observation of lessons is usually optional, but again, is highly recommended under the age of 10. At the start of lessons you may wish to discuss this with your instructor. CMC requires parents of new students choosing non-Suzuki lessons to register for & attend an orientation in September (see Parent Orientation in the Fall 2017 catalog, or call the office).

Suzuki (Teacher/Parent/Student) method: This is a family approach to music instruction that creates a “learning triangle� between teacher, parent (or guardian) & student. The parent, who does not need to have prior musical training, learns with the student & serves as the role model for the young player between lessons. Parents assist the young students in their practice at home each day as assigned by the instructor. When the student is not practicing, the family listens to the recordings of the songs as much as possible to create the immersion that the method requires for the best learning experience. The goal is that music becomes like another language in the home. Parents are required to attend an orientation class in September (see Parent Orientation in the Fall 2017 catalog, or call the CMC office) prior to placement with their first teacher. When filling out the application form on page 17, please list availability where the child and practicing parent can attend lessons together. Parents/guardians are welcome to rent instruments from CMC to practice at home with their child - see page 13 for details.

Private Lesson Policy Information Practice Requirements It is important that students take lessons seriously, practice every day (at least as long as their lesson length), complete any homework assigned by instructors & progress in-step with their ability to learn.

Students not progressing in-step with their ability to learn will receive instruction on how to improve practice habits. If no progress is made, CMC will require the student & parent to sign an agreement on how to improve practice.

Attendance Requirements & Policies Because regular attendance is important, lessons and classes should not be missed except in unavoidable instances. As a courtesy to everyone an absence affects, the CMC office should be notified as much in advance as possible to allow for instructor schedule adjustments. Absences are classified as either Excused or Unexcused. Excused Absence: Student illness or other unavoidable cause with notification as defined below. Excused Absences will be credited. Student Illness: Notify the office verbally before the scheduled lesson time. Only one illness over the summer may be excused.

Other Unavoidable Causes: Notify the office in writing at least two weeks in advance using the missed lesson form. This allows for us to notify the teacher, make necessary schedule changes and process credits. Unexcused Absence: Any cause not listed above. No credits or make-ups will be offered for Unexcused Absences. NOTE: A student may be dropped for more than two Unexcused Absences a term, three absences in a row, or four absences of any type during a term. Because space is limited, a student may be dropped from the program if any of the above requirements are not met.

Withdrawal Policy Once accepted, the lesson time is reserved for your child through Summer Term. CMC understands that extenuating circumstances arise & occasionally a student must withdraw before the end of the term. Because of the effort it takes to set up teacher schedules, CMC’s withdrawal policy for private lessons is as follows: Notify the CMC office two weeks before the next lesson & a refund of paid fees will be issued for the remaining lessons in the term. NOTE: This policy is different than the general PP&R withdrawal policy.

SUMMER 2017 – PRIVATE LESSONS

1. 2. 3. 4.

How to Register Complete this application form and return it to CMC after reading Program Requirements below. •This application is for Summer only. All students must apply again (starts August 7) for the school year. •Instructors may require purchase of additional materials not included in listed registration fee. •Non-residents of the City of Portland pay a higher rate for lessons. Contact the office for details. Wait patiently for a call from the office confirming a lesson time. This occurs about 2-3 weeks before lessons begin (scheduling starts MAY 20). If we cannot place a student, we maintain a waitlist through late July. Pay tuition at the time of confirmation. Once payment is received, the student is officially registered. New this summer: Lessons available June 19-September 30. Note: September is only available to continuing CMC students (preference given to students studying in July and August).

Private Lesson Program for Youth – Program Requirements CMC's Private Lesson Program for Youth strives to provide the highest-quality music education to as many dedicated students as possible, regardless of ability to pay. To this end, CMC makes the following requirements, which parents & students should carefully consider before committing to lessons at CMC. 1. Practice Requirements Students should practice daily for at least as much time as their lesson length, complete any homework assigned by instructors, & progress in keeping with their ability to learn. NOTE: Students who fail to progress to the best of their ability will receive instruction on how to improve practice habits. If progress is still not made, CMC will require the student & parent to sign and fulfill a practice-improvement agreement. 2. Musicianship Requirements Only for String students during School Year - Waived Summer Term The CMC String program is more than just lessons. It is a sequential curriculum designed to foster well-rounded musicians. • Beginning string students are required to enroll in, attend regularly, and do satisfactory work in Basic Skills, On My Way With Basic Skills, Skills I, or Skills I/II Accelerated. Four-year-olds are excused from this requirement, but are encouraged to take Launch Pad to Learning or Basic Skills & are required to take Skills at age 5. String Program students may take these courses at a reduced fee ($20 in 2016-17). • Continuing string students are required to enroll in, attend regularly, and do satisfactory work in an appropriate Skills class, Orchestra, Choir, Piano, or Chamber Music (fees vary; see school year catalog or ask the office about prerequisites, special requirements, schedules & pricing). • The musicianship requirement may be satisfied if the student is receiving comparable training elsewhere. This must be documented with an Exemption Form. See the CMC office for details. • Students who begin in Summer become subject to the musicianship requirement upon enrolling for Fall Term. 3. Attendance Requirements & Policies Regular attendance is important. Lessons & classes should not be missed except in unavoidable circumstances. When a student must be absent, notify the CMC office as much in advance as possible to allow for instructor schedule adjustments. Absences are either excused or unexcused, as defined below: Excused Absence: • Student Illness – CMC must be notified before the scheduled lesson time. Only one illness per term may be Excused. Subsequent illnesses will be Unexcused. • Other Unavoidable Causes – Notify the CMC office in writing at least two weeks in advance using the missed lesson form. This allows time to notify the teacher & make schedule adjustments. Excused Absences will be credited. Unexcused Absence: Any cause not listed above. No credits or makeups will be offered for Unexcused Absences. 4. Causes for Dropping a Student Space in the Private Lesson Program is limited. At CMC’s discretion, a student may be dropped for any of the following: • Failure to progress to the best of their ability. • Failure to fulfill the terms of a signed practice agreement. • Failure to fulfill the musicianship requirement. • Failure to maintain good attendance. NOTE: A student may be dropped for two Unexcused absences a term, three Excused absences in a row, or four Excused absences during a term. Extenuating circumstances may be considered on a case-by-case basis. 5. Withdrawal Policy Once accepted, the lesson time is reserved for your child through Summer Term. CMC understands that extenuating circumstances arise and occasionally a student must withdraw before Summer ends. Because of the effort it takes to set up teacher schedules, CMC’s withdrawal policy for private lessons is as follows: • Notify the CMC office two full weeks before the next lesson & a refund of paid fees will be issued for the lessons that remain in the term. NOTE: This policy is different than the general PP&R withdrawal policy.
