The lobbies and hallways serve as both a waiting area for students prior to lessons and a meeting place for parents, students, and instructors. Students are expected to speak quietly in these areas to prevent interference with instruction in nearby studios, classrooms, and/or offices. They are also to be respectful of a professor's property hung outside their doors and on bulletin boards. Parents/guardians are responsible to curtailing, running, loud play, and any dangerous or disturbing behavior. Children must be supervised by a parent or another adult at all times.
The Academy provides drawers labeled "books and toys" located in the practice room hallway in Totino outside the Academy office and on the third floor music hall in Nazareth hall. These drawers are stocked with books, coloring books, games, doodle boards, and more. All Academy families are welcome to use these items while waiting for a music lesson to finish. Parents are responsible to help their children respect the property of the Academy and ensure that they return everything to the drawers before leaving the building.
Students who do not meet the expectations outlined above may be dismissed with lesson tuition forfeited.
Changes of address, telephone or e-mail address must be provided to the Academy of Music office in a timely manner.
