Student Recital Participation Guidelines:
Recitals are open to all students of JMTA members. All ages and levels are accepted.
Teachers may have up to 5 students participate, with total performance time no more than 15 minutes. Each student plays only one piece or movement.
Solo performances are to be MEMORIZED. Duets may use music.
Teachers are required to bring a PLATE of cookies to the December and March recitals for the reception following the recital. Serving platters will not be provided. Be sure to collect your plates before leaving. JMTA will provide punch, cups, small paper plates, and napkins for these recitals. Outside food is prohibited at the October recital at River Garden. They will provide a reception for us.
Please stress to the students the importance of proper dress and that they are expected to remain for the entire performance. If a student is unable to attend the entire time, ask them to wait until the next recital date. Recitals typically last between 50-60 minutes (not including following reception time, which is optional). Students may not request specific placement in the recital program.
Students should arrive by 2:45p to be seated and receive instructions.
Teachers are required to attend in order to have students participate. Each teacher will be asked to assist with the program, either by bringing needed items, seating students, or setting up and serving refreshments.
A participation fee of $5 per student is due with your application. Checks should be made out to JMTA. The monies must be received from the teacher before allowing the student(s) to play. If paying cash, put it in a sealed envelope with your name and number of students written on the envelope.
You may download the form below to submit your information with your check by mail, or send the following information via email (bring your check or cash to the recital). If you would like to mail your form and check to be received by application deadline, please contact Recital Co-Chair Lorraine Sears for mailing address.
Please adhere to application deadlines to allow adequate time for compiling and printing programs. Applications received after the deadline may be denied participation.
