Youth: Group Classes - Piano

CMC's two-year sequential curriculum for youth piano makes learning in a group setting 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 digital keyboard for practice between classes is required. Limited keyboard rentals are available at CMC (see page 17 for instrument rentals). 10% discount for CMC private lesson students.

 Sequential Classes – Piano Foundations Year 1 & 2, fol-

lowed by Piano Laboratory. Foundations classes are clearly labeled by term (1-1 is first year, first term). Class titles change each term. Continuing students, see "Piano Foundations: Placement" on pg. 9 or call the office (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)

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 at-home 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 below, or call the office).

Adult: Parent Orientation Parent Orientation - Suzuki age: 18 & up Build harmonious connections at home! Discover the important dynamics between student, teacher & parent/ guardian in this method. Observe demonstrations, get insightful information & find the confidence needed to help beginning violin, viola, & cello students succeed. 1079362 Th 7pm-9pm 9/21 & 9/28 $14 1080030 Sa 9:30am-11:30am 9/23 & 9/30 $14 Parent Orientation: General age: 18 & up "How can I help my child get the most out of lessons?" Find answers to important questions & discover essential information to make the most out of a young person's violin, viola, cello or bass lessons. Gain confidence to build harmony at home. 1079363 Th 7pm-9pm 9/28 $7 1080031 Sa 9:30am-11:30am 9/30 $7 Parent Orientation: Suzuki & General age: 18 & up "How can I help my child get the most out of lessons?" Find answers to important questions & discover essential information to make the most out of a young person's violin, viola, cello or bass lessons. Gain confidence to build harmony at home. 1079364 Sa 1:30pm-4pm 12/2 $10 1080100 Sa 1:30pm-4pm 3/10 $10

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 below, or call the CMC office) prior to placement with their first teacher. When filling out the application form on page 19 or online, 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 - below for details.

Instrument Rentals CMC has a limited number of string, wind, and keyboard instruments 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. This should be done even if you are not yet confirmed for private lessons (youth), or if you are on a group class wait list (adults). Youth private lesson students can get on the wait list by checking the appropriate box on the application form (page 19). *Online form is at: www.communitymusiccenter.org (click on "Instrument Rentals" on the sidebar). 2. Once payment arrangements are made for private lessons/group class, set a fitting appointment with the instrument rental coordinator. For students starting in fall there is a fitting day on September 30 - no appointment required. 3. Meet with the rental coordinator. You’ll complete a rental agreement, make payment & receive your instrument (if your size is available). If one is not available, you may choose to remain on the waiting list. Preference is given to scholarship students, then youth, then adults.

CMC Payment Policies

Private Lesson Policies

Payment for CMC classes is due at the time of registration. A payment plan may be set up at no extra charge, however, the first payment of the plan is always due at the time of registration.

Practice Requirements

Payment Plans The payment plan available to CMC students/ families registering in person depends on the type of class enrolled.

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.

Monthly payments must be completed by: School Year : May 1 Fall: Dec 1 Winter: Mar 1 Spring: June 1 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.

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.

Late Fee • A late payment fee of $20 may be charged each month for a past due balance of 2 weeks or more. • Accounts with payments past due may also prevent students from enrolling in future activities and/or applying for scholarship tuition assistance; late accounts may also be sent to a collection agency. • The late payment fee is not reduced by scholarship. • If financial circumstances make it impossible to meet the agreed upon terms of the payment plan, please contact the supervisor or coordinator.

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 per term. 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 June. 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.

SCHOOL YEAR 2017-18 – FOR PRIVATE LESSONS – YOUTH ONLY How to Register 1. Complete this application form (or register online) and return it to CMC after reading program requirements below. • This registration covers October to early June (Summer requires separate registration, avail. in March). • Parents of new Suzuki Method students & non-Suzuki students 10 & younger are required to register for & attend a parent orientation in September (if starting in fall) or December/March (if starting later) - see catalog for details. • Instructors may require purchase of additional materials not included in listed registration fee. • Purchase of a Non-Resident Pass required for Out-of-District participants; contact the office for details. 2. Wait patiently for a call from the office confirming a lesson time. This occurs about two weeks before lessons begin for continuing students and one week before for new students. If we cannot place a student, we maintain a wait list through April. 3. Pay tuition at the time of confirmation. Once lesson is confirmed, the student is officially registered & tuition due. Private Lesson Program for Youth – Program Requirements CMC's Private Lesson Program for Youth strives to provide the highest-quality music education for 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, and 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 Classes The CMC program is more than just lessons. It is a sequential curriculum designed to foster well-rounded musicians. • Beginning students are required to enroll in, attend regularly and do satisfactory work in Basic Skills, On My Way With Basic Skills, Skills I, or I/II Accelerated (see catalog for course descriptions and ages). 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. Private Lesson Program students may take these courses at the reduced fee (see catalog for info). • Continuing 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 catalog listings for 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. 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 or other unavoidable cause, with notification. Excused absences will be made up or credited. • Student Illness – Notify CMC verbally before the scheduled lesson time. Only one illness per term may be excused - subsequent illnesses will be unexcused. • Other Unavoidable Causes – Notify CMC in writing using the missed lesson form at least two weeks in advance. 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 Lesson Program is limited. At CMC's discretion, students 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 more than two unexcused absences a term, three absences in a row, or four absences of any type 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 early June. CMC understands that extenuating circumstances arise and occasionally a student must withdraw before the school year 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. A student withdrawing before the start of a term, including those not continuing in Winter or Spring, must notify the office at least two weeks before the first scheduled lesson. Failure to do so will result in additional fees based on the time of notification. NOTE: This policy is different than the general PP&R withdrawal policy.

IMPORTANT DETAILS ABOUT INCLUSION SERVICES • A general program may be adapted using auxiliary aids and services, but the basic structure of the program remains the same. • Accommodations are made as needed and can be flexible, as well as creative. • Participants need to register for activities that are intended for their birth age. • Personal care is provided for activities for individuals up to age 12. • For sign language interpreter please call 2 working days prior to the class. • We request at least 5 working days’ notice prior to start of class. If you have questions about Inclusion Services, please contact Jane Doyle at 503-823-4333 (jane.doyle@portlandoregon.gov). If necessary, use City TTY 503-823-6868, or use Oregon Relay Service: 711.

Please be aware that these photos are for promotional purposes and may be used in future publications and media communications in any format. If you do not wish to be photographed, please inform staff and we will make reasonable efforts to honor your request. If you see staff taking pictures, and you do not wish to be photographed, please let us know. If you see a photo of yourself or a family member that causes you concern, please notify us. As a courtesy, we will make every reasonable effort to dispose of the image, and will not use it in future publications.

Portland Parks & Recreation strives for 100% customer satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with a recreation program or service, please let us know. INFORMATION HOTLINE For information on other PP&R services & programs, call the Parks Information Hotline at 503-823-PLAY (7529), Mon-Fri, 8:30am-5pm. INCLEMENT WEATHER If the City of Portland public school districts (Portland Public, Parkrose, David Douglas, Reynolds, and Centennial) are closed because of weather conditions, PP&R classes and youth basketball in those school districts may be cancelled. We recommend that you check in with your community centers for the latest information about individual registered programs and activities. Some recreation programs may run as conditions and instructor availability allow. Decisions to operate on a specific site basis are made when it is determined that all programs may operate safely. Call the specific PP&R facility for information and opening/closing times.
