About the Course
OVIMA works with its students in a holistic way developing the individual, and not just the students, artistic and musical skills. Our Fun Group Classes are held once a week for 60 minutes for Group Classes and once a week for 30 minutes or 60 minutes for One-on-One classes. We offer Fun Group classes in the following areas: Voice, Guitar, Speech Arts and Drama. We offer One-on-One Classes in all instruments.
Students must sign up for 10 classes at a time to be able to see the progress they are making. Students have two options of registering: 3:1 (3 students to 1 teacher) OR 1:1 . Additionally, OVIMA Global has numerous performing platforms it has made available to students to promote our constant effort in developing CONFIDENCE & SELF-EXPRESSION in students.

In-class Performances (Non-Performance Quarter):
The 1st and 3rd Quarters are Non-Performance Quarters (Students perform in an In-Class Performance-Not Open to Parents and Public, ONLY to students).
Quarterly Jam Sessions
This is a platform made available for students to come together with whatever they want to sing or perform. They do not have to memorize their music for these Jam Sessions. Performance in these Jam Sessions is NOT MANDATORY but students are encouraged to participate.
Recital Performance (Performance Quarter):
The 2nd and 4th Quarters are Performance Quarters (Students perform in a Recital Performance – Open to Parents and Public).
Quarterly Seasonal Concerts
Students would prepare a song or piece per the Seasonal Theme and would have the opportunity of working with the instructor just once. This means that the student MUST come prepared knowing the tune of the song and lyrics from memory or knowing the piece completely in the case of instrumentalists. This again is NOT MANDATORY, but students are encouraged to participate.
If a student wants to be successful, then he/she must attend their classes regularly as participation and practice are two major components for success. Students / parents are required to notify OVIMA Global and the instructor in advance of any absences. For Sing for Fun Classes there is just one day in the Quarter assigned for Make Up Classes. Students are NOT PERMITTED to miss more than ONE class in the Quarter. If a student is missing a class the OVIMA office must be informed 24 hours in advance.
