Student Candidate Eligibility and Requirements

Skokstudio is interested in training serious singers, ages 18 and older, who want to develop their singing ability in any music genre, through the application of classical vocal technique. Eligibility as a candidate for enrollment in private lessons with Skokstudio is strictly determined by evidence of a student’s desire and commitment to develop as a professional vocalist.

Skokstudio determines all new student candidate eligibility for enrollment through the initial Vocal Evaluation Session.

Physical Participation Requirement

Skokstudio lessons demand a level of physical participation which requires students to freely move around, stand or crouch for periods of time, and use a variety of light fitness equipment from the REST™ Toolkit. Be sure to let your instructor know if you are unable to physically participate so that the curriculum can be modified to fit your abilities where possible.

Personal Computer and Webcam with High-Speed Internet Requirement

Online Lessons at Skokstudio require that students must use either a laptop or desktop home computer with a webcam. Cell phones, tablets, Chromebooks or other mobile devices are not permitted for online lessons. Students are required to use either a Mac or PC (laptop or desktop with webcam) with a fully updated version of OS X or Windows 10. Students will be shipped the Enhanced Online Equipment Toolkit and will use this connected to their home computer or laptop for Online Lessons. Students must be able to download and install the Zoom application to their computer, which must meet Zoom’s minimum computing requirements. During an initial Vocal Evaluation Session, if Zoom continues to report that the student’s Internet speed is too slow or wi-fi signal too weak, the student will be unable to take Online Lessons at Skokstudio unless the student contacts their Internet service provider to increase the speed to 200mbps High-Speed Internet. Although this is an added personal expense, it is essential for today’s singer who studies and performs online, and fortunately, many internet service providers are now making faster home internet service speeds more affordable. Moving closer to the wi-fi router may also significantly improve the signal strength. 

Music Theory Requirement

Students must be prepared to demonstrate that they can read music if asked, or must be able to share the name and institution of the instructor currently (or most recently) teaching them to read.

Students Under Age 18

In certain circumstances, students who are teenagers under age 18 may also be considered for private instruction as well. Students must be able to clearly demonstrate that they possess the necessary high level of commitment required by Skokstudio. Students under 18 may take lessons only with parental/guardian consent, and are then permitted to take only 30-minute lessons, unless otherwise directly approved by Skokstudio. Parents of students under 18 will sign the Student Enrollment Agreement instead of the student themselves.

Principles of Nondiscrimination, Inclusion, Diversity, Social Equality

Skokstudio observes a policy of nondiscrimination for any reason of race, religion, ethnicity, gender, gender orientation/identity, or body shape in all company activities. Skokstudio also considers student candidate age eligibility to have no upper boundary, and with its sister organization Resonanz Opera, seeks to champion principles of inclusion, diversity and social equality in the Arts through their partnership together in the ROSALIA Program for Vocalists.
