Natalie’s School of Performing Arts offers private lessons in vocal, piano, sight singing, sight reading and other instruments. This allows for you to get to know the teacher and offers you a chance to ask any questions you may have directly with the teacher. We operate on a 4 week – 5 week class term (varies by the month). The curriculum is designed to give students a strong foundation for a career in the performing arts. Our students develop a robust work ethic and high standards of conduct that serves them in all their future endeavors.

Partnered Schools and Instructors
Private or group lessons given by instructors or organizations other than those contracted to give lessons under the Natalie’s SOPA company name are only leasing space from Natalie’s SOPA and are not covered by this policy.
Make-up Lessons and Classes
Private Lessons: Natalie’s SOPA instructors are happy to provide three make-up lessons over the course of the trimester, provided that 24 hour notice is given either directly to the teacher or the Natalie’s SOPA office in the event that a student cannot attend. This is to ensure consistency in scheduling for our instructors, and that no outstanding lessons exist after the trimester ends; Natalie’s SOPA cannot credit lessons from one trimester to the next, all lessons must take place within the registered trimester. If proper 24 hour notice is not given the student forfeits their lesson and is not eligible for a refund. Proper notice will result in the student being eligible for a full in person or online zoom make-up lesson.
If a family is going away for vacation in which several lessons will be missed, 2 week notice must be given to be eligible for make ups.
Last minute cancellations by instructors are rare, but if they occur students will be offered full in person make-ups.
All delays or closures due to inclement weather will be posted online on our Whatsapp group chat. You can also call the Natalie’s SOPA office at (201)259-9464 to find out more information. Natalie’s SOPA does not make individual calls to students if and when the school is closed; please call or check the group chat to confirm Natalie’s SOPA winter weather closures.
Instructors reserve the right to make an individual decision to cancel in person lessons or classes due to bad weather; should they do so, a make up may be scheduled.
All lessons conducted from December 20th until January 10th will be conducted digitally.
Withdrawals and Refunds
Private Lessons: The school must be notified by the last lesson of the month if intending to withdraw. If a student decides to withdraw prior to their last lesson, there will be no refunds.
