*In-person recitals will not be held in Fall 2020 due to COVID-19*
Student recitals are offered 3-4 times a semester. Private teachers will decide when students are ready to perform. We have informal and formal recitals for beginner and more advanced students. Students only perform 1 piece on a recital. If they play multiple instruments, they will need to perform on different recitals.
Private teachers will facilitate the matching of accompanists with students for recitals and competitions. The private teacher will set up a rehearsal time with an available accompanist. If the student does not come to the agreed upon time, the student forfeits the rehearsal. It will be the responsibility of the family to pay for the missed rehearsal fee and the rescheduled rehearsal fee. The private teacher will be present for the rehearsal.
The accompanist fee will be billed through the online invoice system at the rate of $45/hour. A separate invoice will be sent to the family for accompanist rehearsals. We will combine children onto 1 invoice if at all possible. You can pay with a credit card or with cash or check. It benefits the Academie when you chose cash or check.
Local contests: $45/hour for rehearsal, $25 for competition
State Competition (out of town) is $45/hour + travel expenses . This rate will be increased at the discretion of the private teacher if the piece is extremely difficult, and will be discussed with the student and parent on an individual basis.
