K&M SOPA Class Listings

Below you will find a listing of the courses offered by the K&M School of Performing Arts.

The course title is followed by a short list of topics to be covered in that class.  If there is a (P) next to the course title, the class has a pre-requisite.  The tools required for each class are also listed.  If you are interested in a class with a pre-requisite and feel you have the skills to take the course, please contact Kat Feldragonne to discuss instructor approval to take the course.

Classes will be held in voice, but students will also receive a notecard with notes for each class.  Class signups are first-come, first-served.  I reserve the right to change/add/modify class dates/times if necessary.  Classes are three (3) sessions and are limited to eight (8) students.

You must join the K&M in-world group for classes.  All notices and reminders will be sent through this group. Once I have confirmed your enrollment in the class, I will send invites for the group, so make sure you have a group slot free.

*NOTE: Though I teach classes using the SpotOn tools, these classes are not officially endorsed by SpotOn.*
