Upon joining IEMA, students are expected to commit to the Sept. - May rehearsal schedule, Winter and Spring Concerts. Mastery and refinement of music comes only through regular practice by all musicians. Furthermore, the chorus’ sound depends on a solid group with enough voices to cover all choral parts. 

Rehearsal Attendance

Punctuality: Please make every effort to be on time. Rehearsals will start on time and you may miss out on valuable instruction time. If a student will be late to a rehearsal or must leave a rehearsal prior to its scheduled dismissal time, the student or a parent must notify a director/teacher as far in advance as possible. Students and parents, please bear in mind that late arrivals and early departures are noted on sign-in sheets and documented in attendance records. Leaving a rehearsal early or arriving late may count as 1/2 of an absence.

We have a class absent policy, 2 missed classes per semester are allowed. More than two missed classes may jeopardize your students ability to participate in performances. 

Charter School Students

Charter Students must register on this website to ensure admission before submitting any POs/Certificates. Annual Family Membership fee cannot be paid on a Charter PO/Certificate.

Not following proper enrollment procedures may forfeit your students ability to join the program. We also encourage families to use their funds for only part of the class expenses after the first semester. We don't want the program devalued since no monies are coming from the family. We also do not want this program dependent upon charter funds. Therefore if a certain ensemble is too dependent on charter funds, no more funds would be accepted towards that ensemble. Students can still register but pay out-of-pocket. 


Families are asked to read and sign the Charter Family Agreement on the Registration form. ​


  • All Charter Schools, except Sky Mountain, should create monthly POs. Sky Mountain students should submit a Semester PO.

  • Family agrees to pay their bill regardless of their charter school status and if the charter school will not honor the incurred expense.

  • Family agrees to show proof of funds available by creating a PO/certificate with their charter school coordinator and emailing proof by the first week of class.

  • Family understands that they will not be allowed to re-enroll if they have a balance unpaid by their charter school or unpaid by the family.

  • If a family decides to drop an ensemble, you will be billed at a private lesson rate of $25 per attended class. Dropping of a class should not alter the PO. Classes are paid for by semester, whether you complete it or not. Not paying the PO will also jeopardize your future participation in this program. Dropping a class mid-term may affect your child's ability to re-enroll in the program.   

  • If a family changes charter schools after the first week of class, any early registration rate is void. New PO must be for the regular class rate. 

  • Families understand that IEMA can at any time decide not to be a charter school vendor, families will be notified ahead of time.
