WHAT TIME DO I ARRIVE?
30 minutes prior to your performance time. If you perform at 2 p.m., arrive at 1:30 p.m., etc.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Each recital lasts approximately 1 hour. It is designed so that you can leave after you or your child perform. *Please do not leave during the 1-hour set. As a courtesy to all of the performers, please watch the entire program as we want every student to have the same amount of respect from the audience.
WHERE IS IT?
Step By Step Dance Studio. Right next door to Scranton Music Academy!
WHAT DO THE PERFORMERS WEAR?
Dress to impress! Black pants or skirts and white button up shirts or tops. Suits and more formal dresses are also welcome.
WHAT DO WE BRING?
1. Your sheet music if you use it. 2. Guitarists and bassists, bring your guitars and basses. We will provide amps and cables for you. 3. Drummers, bring your sticks. 4. Vocalists and pianists only need to bring their music and or lyrics if needed.
CAN WE TAKE PICTURES AND VIDEO?
Yes. Please do not take pictures while the students are performing as it may distract them. You are welcome to take photos as they take their bow before and after they perform.
IS THERE AN ADMISSION CHARGE?
The recital is free and open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend. We will collect optional donations of socks and/or gloves for homeless people. One of our students collects socks for the homeless each year at Christmas time. I thought it would be nice to give his collection efforts a boost this year! Since the Academy provides all of our recitals for free to our students and their families, donations to help the homeless are encouraged and appreciated.
I have tried to place all siblings in the same 1-hour program. If your family members are not in the same time slot e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and I will correct it for the program.
*ACCOMPANISTS FOR VOICE STUDENTS
There are no participation fees, except for voice students who need an accompanist. If you know a pianist that could play for you, you may bring that person to accompany you. Please let your teacher know if this is the case. If you are in need of an accompanist, we can provide a professional accompanist for a nominal fee.
Please be aware that typically accompanist fees can range up to $100 per hour. SMA is fortunate to have pianists who will provide their services at an extremely reasonable fee of $25.00 per student for a rehearsal and the showcase. Voice students will be responsible for paying the $25 fee directly to the accompanist at the time of the rehearsal. Since your teacher will be at your rehearsal, this will count as one of your lessons.
ADMISSION... Admission is FREE for family and friends!
