Attendance & Accommodation
School Code of Conduct:
A School Code of Conduct must be completed by the participant and parent or legal guardian, following confirmation of acceptance in our program.
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.
A sample day schedule:
|8:15 - 9:00 a.m||Breakfast|
|10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon||Masterclasses, Individual practice and lessons|
|1:00 - 4:00 p.m||Chamber rehearsals and coaching, individual practice and lessons|
|5:45 - 6:30 p.m||Dinner|
|7:00 p.m||Concerts or scheduled activities or free time|
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. MMB Students reside in the Residence Hall separated by gender and age and Student Assistants (staff) 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.
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 are 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. Our Student Assistants (Chaperons) 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:
Parents and guardians planning to accompany their child are responsible for their own accommodation arrangements. Parents and guardians are not allowed to stay in Residence Hall or visit unannounced.
Parents are not permitted to attend academic activities (these include attending private lessons, chamber coaching sessions). We invite parents to attend master classes (space permitting in designed guest seating rows) and any of the public event concerts during the program.
Pocket/Spending money and Responsibility:
We suggest that participants take a maximum of USD$75 per week for minor expenses. If necessary, we will arrange for the participant to exchange other currencies for US dollars after arrival at the program.
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.
Participants are invited to participate in a variety of organized group activities including museum visits, game evenings, movies, or sightseeing excursions accompanied by MMB Student Assistants.
