Be prepared to be present between 10:00-5:00. All activities are on rotating principle, allowing you to have some time between classes for reviewing notes, preparation for what comes next and getting to know your new friends. We have an open door policy as we believe that we learn from one another. We greatly encourage you to use the opportunity and enter as many rehearsals/classes/lessons as you can. Observe other students' work as much as your schedule allows it.
