Signing Up:

Sign up on this page, tell your teacher, or contact our office to select your recital time by November 1st.

 

Zoom:

Once you are enrolled in a specific recital time, you will be sent the Zoom link to your recital.

 

Music:

Memorization is required unless directed otherwise by your teacher. Students whose music is memorized really do perform better. Your teacher will talk with you about your music selection and then sign you up with that title.

 

Attire:

Students should take this opportunity to dress up and pretend like it’s an in-person recital.

 

Muting:

The host teacher will announce who is going next so you can keep up with the program. Stay muted until your turn, then unmute yourself and go for it. Parents, please be ready to quickly unmute so we can keep the recital moving.

 

Guests:

Feel free to invite your family and friends to watch our recital.

What to Expect in a Virtual Recital

Student’s Name:

Please join the meeting under the recitalist’s name(s) so we all know who is who in your video frame. If you join under a different name, you can click on Participants, your video frame, then More, and select rename.

 

Muting: 

Remain muted until it is your student’s turn to perform. When it’s your turn, unmute yourself and go for it!

 

Sound Settings:

We want to sound the best we can, so use the settings from the graphic…

 

Speaker View vs. Gallery View:

In the beginning and end of the recital, we recommend trying Gallery View so you can see all your friends. Once the recital begins, switch to Speaker View to focus on the performer.

 

Program Order:

The host teacher will announce who is going next so we have one student performing and one ready to go. The program will be sent out ahead of time and also attached in our meeting. Families with more than one student will perform all their kids back-to-back. In the event of technology problems, we will skip you and come back at the end.

 

Performing:

Students should practice their “hello bow” performance, then “thank you bow,” just like we usually do. Piano parents, position the camera so you don’t have to move it for the bows and playing at the piano.

 

Chat & Reactions:

Please feel free to use the Chat box or icons to encourage your fellow performers! It’s really fun to read comments and see high fives on your screens.
