Registration and Policy

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.
