I’m sure you’re wondering about logistics, tuition, and next steps. Here is everything you need to know: TUITION CHANGES AND CAMP OPTIONS Adapting to the change of venue, we have adjusted tuition prices and camp program options. You may choose from the following packages:
Performance Package $425 - This package includes three one-on-one private studio lessons, participation in masterclasses, technique classes, electives classes, theory classes, the option to participate in student recitals, and attendance in all social and evening events. Classes will be arranged by experience and ability based on application video submissions.
Social Distance Chamber Package $500- For an added fee, students receive all of the above plus the ability to participate in the social distance chamber program. Students will be placed into small groups, receive their music ahead of time, virtually meet as a group with their coach twice to go over the music, and have a recording submission deadline of the first official day of camp. Our tech staff will edit individual submissions together to create an asynchronous video performance. More information will be given upon registration for this program. *NOTE- AS OF MAY 11th THIS PROGRAM IS FULL*
Observation Package $75 - For a small fee, participants will have access to virtually attend ALL group classes, masterclasses, and performances as an audience member only.
Extra Lessons - Students who selected the “Performance Package ” will have the option to add additional lessons with a variety of faculty members for $40 per lesson. Additional lessons will be requested and scheduled at a later date.
The Performance Package includes both the 7 day and 4 day options from the original program. For those of you already familiar with the Bass Works program both virtual packages include students of all ages and abilities and will take place from July 19th-26th. All lessons and classes will take place within that time frame. Students of all ages will have access to ability and age appropriate lessons, classes, and masterclasses. If your family has been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis but you still wish to participate, please contact us.
Supervision - All zoom video chats will be monitored by staff. All students are expected to behave in a respectful and appropriate manner. There will be no tolerance for profanity, or other inappropriate behavior. Infringements could result in dismissal from the program.
Sharing Links - In order to maintain the privacy of the students and faculty and the integrity of the audit package, Zoom links may not be shared with those not registered for the program. You may of course invite family members to watch publicly streamed recitals! Infringements could result in dismissal from the program.
Privacy Policies - Every precaution will be taken to ensure student privacy. Every Zoom meeting will be password protected and all participants will be required to use their real names. Anyone not in compliance will be removed from the meeting.
Zoom - All virtual classes, lessons, and many recitals will be held as Zoom meetings.
Teacher Zone - We will be using the “Teacher Zone” online platform to house all schedules, zoom links, announcements, and communication. Every parent, student, and staff member will have their own login for this one-stop shop for all Bass Works @ Home information. With one click, students and parents can see their personalized schedule, communicate with teachers, and find all of their Zoom links in one place!
YouTube and Facebook Live - Evening programs and recitals will be live streamed on YouTube and/or Facebook live. These public links may be shared with friends and family who wish to attend performances.
Tech Support - Prior to the start of camp, every student will fill out a technology survey (this will be sent at a later date) and do a “tech check” with one of our staff members to ensure they are well set up for a successful camp. Staff members will also be available during the week to troubleshoot tech issues, answer questions, and log incidents should they occur.
Do I need a placement video?YES! While your video has no bearing on your admittance into camp it is an important tool we use to place you in appropriate groups to maximize your camp experience!
I’m unsure about the technology side of things. Help! Send our team a message as soon as possible and we can ensure you have the best set up possible for camp! We will have staff available prior to and during the week of camp to assist with tech set up and issues.
What time zone is Bass Works @ Home? Our schedule will align with the current time of Baltimore, MD (EDT.) However, we will do whatever we can to accommodate those joining us from other time zones. Please fill out the survey to let us know what times are best for you!
wish to withdraw from the program entirely will receive all payments back minus the initial non-refundable $50 deposit.
