TERMS & CONDITIONS OF MEMBERSHIP

MEMBERSHIP & FEE:

The membership fee is $220 per term and choir operates during Public School Terms, plus any performances. When you join for the first time, there is a one-off registration fee of $40. This amount covers our administration costs, and includes a beautiful handmade performance flower brooch.

Fees are due in advance of the upcoming term. You will be emailed an invoice. Fees are payable via bank transfer only. To ensure your place is held for you for subsequent terms you are required to pay your terms fees by the due date which will always be the Monday of the last week of term.

Discounted rates for partial attendance at choir are not offered, except in extenuating circumstances. We expect that people will have varying choir attendance during a term due to prior work or travel commitments or sickness.

I agree

SINGING REQUIREMENT:

Hummingsong Choirs are non-auditioned but there is an expectation that you can pitch match i.e. sing in tune! On your first night your conductor will listen to you sing a few notes or a simple song like "Happy Birthday". This process is simply to determine which section of the choir to which your voice is best suited. Relax! It's easy-peasy and nothing to fear.

I agree

ATTENDANCE, PRACTICE & PERFORMANCE:

Hummingsong choirs focus is on building a strong singing community and working towards concert performances.i An attendance rate of at least 80% will help you to learn and perfect your repertoire alongside your fellow choir members. It's a team effort!!

Think of joining a choir like joining a sporting team. The team cannot progress well with sporadic team member attendance. The expectation is that you will engage in the many varied performance opportunities offered by Hummingsong. If you have no interest in performing, then Hummingsong is probably not the right fit for you.

We understand that things come up from time to time, however regular attendance at choir benefits everyone. Being performance ready will require you to learn and practice your music in your own time. It is also expected that you will read all email communications in a timely manner and provide your RSVPs to required events promptly.

I agree

READING MUSIC:

It is not a requirement for you to be able to read music, but we do encourage everyone to learn with us. You will be provided with learning tracks, which you can download and listen and sing along with, plus printable sheet music that will help support you in learning your singing part. However, our performances are sung from memory – we do not rely on sheet music during concerts.

I agree

TRIAL VISITS:

Unfortunately, we're unable to offer visits until a position becomes available for you in the choir. Please complete the online registration form and once you have been offered a place and accepted this, you will be issued an invoice that will need to be paid by the due date. If, after the first rehearsal, you decide that the choir isn't for you, we will happily refund your fees (less $22 for your first rehearsal), as long as you let us know prior to the second rehearsal.

I agree

LEAVE OF ABSENCE:

Our choirs often have large waiting lists with many people eager to join and start their singing journey with Hummingsong. We understand that sometimes members, for whatever reason, have to take Leave of Absence. We can hold your place in the choir by issuing a $100 holding deposit invoice. Once paid, this is a sign of commitment from you that you will return. Otherwise, your choir place could be offered to someone else.

If you return the following term, as planned, the $100 will go towards your next terms fees. If you are unable to return, the deposit is non-refundable. The holding deposit is for one term only and cannot be carried forward to another term. A second holding deposit will be required under those circumstances.

I agree

RESOURCES & MATERIALS:

All resources and teaching materials remain the property of Hummingsong Pty Ltd. You will not share or use these resources outside of choir.

I agree

PHOTOGRAPHY & MEDIA:

Any use of photos, videos and recordings of the choir taken throughout the year may be used as promotional material for Hummingsong ty Ltd. If you do not wish your image to be shared for promotional purposes, please email enquiries@hummingsong.com.au

I agree

PRIVACY:

If you do not wish your contact details to be shared within your choir, please email enquiries@hummingsong.com.au

I agree

HEALTH & WELLBEING:

The health, safety and wellbeing of all members is our top priority. Please do not attend choir rehearsals or events if you are displaying any signs of illness.
