      We hope that singing teachers foster excellence and learning in a dignified and professional environment and that there is no: discrimination by any type (racial/ethnic, social origin, gender, sexuality, beliefs, among others), moral, sexual or physical harassment, innuendo or favoritism. Thus, it is up to the members of the category:


1. Avoid any and all types of discrimination, considering the legal provisions in force.


2. Provide a safe learning environment, maintaining limits on personal, psychological and emotional contact with students, thus also avoiding moral harassment. This environment should inhibit insinuations that could be seen as sexual harassment, even in situations where the student himself encourages or requests such an interaction.


3. Respect the personal and private integrity of students, not providing confidential information, unless an academic or legal system requires disclosure.


4. Communicate and comply with rules and expectations regarding the work environment in a clear, accurate and timely manner, maintaining the appropriate physical environment in terms of cleanliness, sanitation and organization.


5. In the case of a virtual work environment, strive to provide the most appropriate conditions possible for this type of teaching, as well as facilitate the use of these tools by students.


6. Establish, maintain and terminate (when applicable) your relationship with the student in a respectful and professional manner.


7. Encourage transparency between all parties involved when the student wants to seek instruction from any faculty of his/her choice, including simultaneous study with other professionals.
