PLEASE BE ON TIME. We are following a very strict schedule given to us by the market. If you miss your time slot, there will be no guarantee of performance.
For an outdoor event, we are striving to be comfortable, yet presentable!
While the event is more casual than a traditional recital, T-shirts, shorts, ripped and faded clothes, gym sneakers etc. are not really appropriate. Ask if you have a question.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
- Have your music secured!
Make sure you don’t forget your sheet music. Please do not show up with loose sheets of music. It takes a lot of time to secure and unsecure every performers music. We have a VERY full day, so make sure you are prepared beforehand. Secure your music in a binder, or clip/staple them into your lesson book so they do not blow off the music stand. If you want a suggestion, just ask your teacher!
- Consider your hairstyle:
Make sure long hair won’t block your view of your instrument or music. (or your face in photos!) Also it will very likely be windy – we are outside.
- Pianists/wear pedal-appropriate shoes:
Avoid high heels, slippery soles, or boots that might constrict your ankles.
