Attendance

Attendance:

Participants are expected to attend and arrive on time to all planned events. The participant must contact the on-site staff, if he/she is unable to participate.

Under no circumstances are participants allowed to leave the campus on their own without advising their Student Assistant.

School waiver:

A school waiver must be completed by the participant and parent or legal guardian, following confirmation of acceptance in our program.

Accommodation:

Unless accompanied by a parent/guardian, all scholarship participants requesting accommodation are required to reside on-campus at the Residence Hall of the Student Life and Performance Center (SLPC) at New England Conservatory for the duration of the program. Living on the campus is not only fun, but is a great learning experience. For many young musicians this is their first time living with a roommate, the first time they do laundry on their own (laundry facilities will be available), or the first time they've had so much choice about how to spend their free time. And while participants learn what it's like to live away from home, they won't be on their own. Student Assistants (Chaperons) will make sure they are comfortable, safe, and happy — and that the participant is making the most of his/her time at Morningside Music Bridge.

Participants are expected to be courteous, respectful guests and considerate of others. When staying in residence, participants will be expected to follow the Residence Hall rules. Participant will be expected to make his/her own bed, help to keep the room tidy, and leave the bathroom, shower and toilets clean. Participants must be in their respective rooms with lights out by 11:00 p.m. on weekdays, and by 11:30 p.m. on weekends. Quiet hours are between 11:30 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.

 

Parent/Guardian Accommodation & Attendance at MMB:

MMB Students reside in the Residence Hall of the Student Life and Performance Center (SLPC) at New England Conservatory, separated by gender and age. Student Assistants reside with the students. They lend a helping hand to the students and ensure that the program is a safe and fun place to be.

Parents and guardians planning to accompany their child are responsible for making their own accommodation arrangements as parents are not able to stay with their child in the SLPC, nor are parents permitted to attend academic scheduled activities (i.e. private lessons, chamber coaching sessions).  

Master classes are open (there is a sitting area designated for parents/guests).  We also invite parents to attend any of the public events (concerts) during the program.

 

Pocket/Spending money and Responsibility:

We suggest that participants take a maximum of USD$75 per week for minor expenses. We will arrange for the participant to exchange money. The currency is the US dollar.

The school is not liable for the loss of property on the premises. We strongly advise all participants to leave valuables at home. In addition, participants should ensure that they have adequate insurance coverage for their instrument.

Optional activities:

Participants of the program are invited to participate on weekly excursions to nearby cities or places of interest that are organized by the program.
