Frequently Asked Questions

What are the dates and time? This is a two-week summer intensive program occurring July 16 – 20 and July 23 – 27.  Drop off begins at 7:15 am. All children must be dropped off by 7:45 am.  Pick up is at 4:00 pm.  There are extended day activities until 6:00 pm. Pick-ups after 4:00 pm will be charged an additional $10/hour per student. Please be prompt for drop-offs and pickups as activities have been carefully planned and timed.  Please do not arrive earlier than 7:15 am as staffing will not yet be present. At the end of the day, students will not be allowed to wait outside for pickup.

Can students attend partial days or weeks?  We understand that situations arise which may necessitate a change in plans. If circumstances prohibit your child from attending, they will fall behind in the session curriculum.  If absolutely necessary, they may miss one day (with as much advanced notice as possible). There will be no refund for days/hours missed.

What is the age range for the program?  We welcome students from age 7 – 17.

Where will classes take place?  Classes will take place at the Kawai Piano Gallery at 5800 Richmond (77057)

What should my child wear? We encourage your child to wear clothes in which they can comfortably move. Please refrain from wearing short skirts, open-toed shoes/sandals or flip flops. You may wish to bring dance shoes, but they are not required.

Who are the teachers? The staff is comprised of bachelor and masters degreed instructors, teaching artists, arts educators, and Texas certified music and theatre teachers. This program is led by Aisha Ussery, M.Ed. who has an extensive performance and education background. She has over 20 years as a working and teaching artist.

Do students need to have prior theatre experience? Prior experience is not necessary! It is our mission to tailor our training to everyone, regardless of experience, ability, or skill level.

Can parents watch class? Since we find that students are often more creative and focused when not being observed by parents, we do not grant parents access to the rehearsal space. Staff will be available in the parking lot in the morning to greet and escort students to the building as well as to bring them out to the parking lot for pick-up at the end of the day.

What about food and beverages?  Students should bring lunch, a beverage and a snack.  Bottled water is available. (Please note refrigerators & microwave ovens are not available).

How will you provide access to daily medication? Students needing daily medication, or who have an Epipen, will need to bring in a correct dosage.  This information is to be provided for the student in the registration form.

Are there any extra costs? You will incur additional fees for the extended hours option (4:00 – 6:00 pm at $10/hour).

How do I contact you? If there is an emergency and you need to reach a staff member or student during the day, please contact Ray Younkin at 832-231-9746. You may email us at info@musicdoinggood.org.
