A transfer student is one who has previously taken lessons, regardless of duration or any breaks in instruction. Transfer students make up a large portion of the student body at Kansas City School of Music.
Anyone who is interested in transferring to Kansas City School of Music should read Admission Requirements. In addition, transfer students will likely be asked to list previous repertoire learned, demonstrate singing ability, and describe why they are looking for a new teacher.
At Kansas City School of music, we hold very high standards to both teachers and students. We want to make sure that all foundational elements of healthy singing are present in the student’s knowledge and abilities before proceeding to more advanced areas. Because of this, there is a possibility that the teacher might spend some time reviewing fundamental concepts to ensure proper technique. Doing this will save time and frustration in the future. The decisions our teachers make are always in the best interest of the student.
