Update Sept 14, 2020: Due to a variety of circumstances and variables mostly out of our control, VPA has made the difficult decision to cancel Fall Classes. The plan as of now is to regroup and resume in January, circumstances permitting. If conditions become more stable before then we will look at offering workshops or mini-classes.
Getting set up for fall classes has been a little more complicated than usual this year! Because of Covid-19, we are adjusting our VPA course offerings to be smaller groups (8 students maximum) and on an “on-demand” basis. You can find more information below and the sign-up here.
Fall VPA classes will be offered on an on-demand basis in small groups of 4 to 8 students from Sep. 15- Dec. 15. Three class formats are available: in-person (socially distanced), on-line, or hybrid (1 week in-person followed by 2 weeks online). If a class fills up another section can be opened if there is sufficient interest. Private class sections (for your choice of 4-8 students) are also available for scheduling convenience or to control exposure.
Classes will be held on Tuesday afternoons between 3 pm and 7 pm (location TBA) and will be scheduled individually based on availability of the instructor and students. When signing up for a class, please indicate whether you prefer classes held in-person, online only, or a hybrid of the two.
Tuition for 45 minute classes: $65/month per student ($75/month for private). Tuition for 60 minute classes: $85/month ($95/month for private). Tuition is the same regardless of which format (in-person, online, or hybrid) is chosen for the class.
Students will have a temperature screening before class and may NOT attend if they have any Covid-19 symptoms or think they may have been exposed to Covid-19. Students missing because of illness will be given an alternate assignment.
All in-person vocal classes will be held outdoors or in a loading space with an open wall to the outdoors for ventilation safety purposes. If there is inclement weather that prohibits being outdoors or opening the wall to the outdoors, the class will do an alternate assignment which can be done safely indoors with an at-home vocal assignment.
The sign-up will help us organize the class groups to set up the schedule. After the classes have been formed and the class times verified, you will be sent an official registration form and billing setup information. Thank you!
