Facilities and Equipment
Currently, the school is housed in an addition to the instructor’s house. The shop has over 700 square feet of space. Organization and maintenance of this space is the student’s responsibility and should reflect professional work habits. Each student provides her/his own hand tools. A list of required tools for the first semester will be provided by the school upon enrollment. All other customary tools and equipment for a violin shop are supplied by the school. Wood and accessories are provided for all instruments except the first and final examination instrument that is built in-the-white. A restroom is adjoining the shop. NO smoking is allowed in the school building at any time.
The school does not provide housing. Out-of-town students may request information on area housing and transportation prior to their arrival.
The NWS will maintain a permanent record of tuition payments, semester grades and comments, test scores, attendance/tardiness, final examination grades, technical drawings, and any disciplinary actions in a file on school premises. Confidentiality of this file will be maintained between the student, school official, and Educational Board of Approval of Wisconsin. All records will be kept indefinitely.
