Policies

There is a strict punctuality policy. If you are more than 10 minutes late, your room will be given to the next people on the waiting list. To cancel a room, call at least two hours in advance. Failure to cancel in advance will prevent you from using the rooms for a week. Other rules of use:

  • Food and beverages are not allowed in rehearsal rooms.
  • Rooms must be left in an orderly and clean condition.
  • Windows and doors must be kept shut during activity.
  • Smoking is prohibited per City of Boston regulations and is not allowed in any practice or ensemble facility at any time.
  • Rehearsal rooms may be used only for music ensemble rehearsals. Unauthorized use of the room for any other purpose is prohibited.

Failure to observe the aforementioned regulations governing practice facilities is considered a serious infraction and may result in immediate termination of a student’s privileges as well as other disciplinary action.
