General Recital Guidelines

Recital Guidelines

Teachers should contact the Recital Director (listed on Events page) one week before the recital to enter their students.

All pieces shall be performed from memory.

There will be no duplication of numbers. The teacher reaching the pro-gram director first will be given preference.

Students should be encouraged to dress appropriately. No jeans, t-shirts, or tennis shoes allowed.

Pop music, show tunes, and simplified arrangements, while being valid pedagogically, are not acceptable recital material.

Proper stage deportment is strongly encouraged.

All levels of students from early elementary to advanced are eligible to participate.

Teachers are allowed five minutes playing time for their student or students. This will not apply in the Honors Recital. The program director may also make an exception when participation is low.
