Young Chef's/ Top Chef's Consent Form

Students will have the opportunity to use kitchen utensils and equipment during the Institute of Music for Children’s cooking program. Students will learn about appropriate handling of food items and safe operation and use of the kitchen equipment and they will be supervised at all times. Parents should be aware, however, that participation involves using knives and other sharp utensils, and that children will be working with and in close proximity to large kitchen equipment and hot items.  Classes may also involve handling of raw food items.  Although every precaution is taken to prevent accidents, a certain risk is involved due to the nature of the experience, the age of the student, and the learning environment.

Private Lessons
All private lessons are 30 minutes long.  Accommodating each lesson is based on teacher availability. Not all art forms will be available at all preferred days/times. The more flexibility you have, the better chances that we can accommodate your request.  We will be emailing you a questionnaire to complete in regards to your child(ren)'s private lessons.

12 Week Scheduling may be subject to limited availability.
