Class Guidelines


WHEN WILL CLASSES BE HELD?

After-school music classes will be held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.


Please access the class schedule link on the OPMI After-School page for specifics.


HOW DOES MY CHILD GET HOME FROM LESSONS?

When filling out the registration form, you will choose from one the following options:

1) Extended Day
2) Parent Pick-up
3) Walker/Biker

The parent pick-up location will be the small parking on Campus Street adjacent to the front office.


WHAT IF I AM LATE PICKING UP MY CHILD FROM CLASS?

If your child is registered for parent pick-up, they must be picked up ON TIME. If you are more than 10 minutes late picking up your child, a fee of $5.00 for each additional minute late will be added to your next month's statement.

If your child has a sibling in a later class, they may choose to wait in the Fine Arts hallway and work on homework or read, but disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. Siblings or friends of OPMI After-School students will not be permitted to hang out in any class that they themselves are not registered for. If your child is to wait in the hallway for their sibling's class to finish, please advise the instructor in writing.


HOW DO I WITHDRAW MY CHILD FROM A CLASS?

To withdraw your child from an OPMI After-School class, notice may be given by emailing OPMI at opmi@opmi-lessons.com, or by filling out the Request To Withdraw Form located on the OPMI After-School home page. Refunds and/or tuition adjustments will not be issued due to lack of attendance or missed classes, regardless the reason.


HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY CHILD PRACTICE?

Practice times will vary for each student. We encourage students to practice at least 15 minutes every day. This will ensure that your child will be prepared for the next class and emphasizes that their rate of progress is their own responsibility.


DO CLASSES LAST THE ENTIRE SCHOOL YEAR?

During the 2014-2015 academic year, OPMI After-School classes will run from the first week in September through the last week in May.


DO YOU OFFER PRIVATE LESSONS?

YES WE DO! OPMI highly encourages private lessons. Every private lesson is tailored towards the individual student and their specific learning needs. One of our highly-trained, talented instructors will come right to your home. Private lessons are also a fantastic idea during the summer so your child can keep their skills sharp and continue to build off of what they learned in their after-school class.

If you are interested in more information about private lessons, please fill out the "Contact Us" form on the OPMI home page.
