Open Registration Student Eligibility and Requirements
Skokstudio reserves the right to determine all student eligibility through a Welcome Lesson.
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 frequently 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. If you would like to purchase a REST Toolkit for use with Open Registration lessons, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
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. Privately Enrolled Students will be shipped the Enhanced Online Equipment Toolkit (USB microphone and Bluetooth headphones) to use with 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 wifi 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 wifi router or using an Ethernet cable instead of wifi will also improve the signal strength.
Students Under Age 18
Talented and dedicated teenagers under age 18 may be considered for Enrollment in private instruction. Students must be able to clearly demonstrate that they possess the necessary high level of commitment required by Skokstudio. Find out more about Enrollment in private instruction here.
Students under 18 are not eligible as candidates for Open Registration lessons.
