Recital Etiquette

It is each teacher's responsibility to convey to both students and parents proper audience behavior at any music recital.


1. Out of courtesy to all who are performing, audience members and students are required to remain for the entire recital including Student Recitals, Branch Honors Recital, Festivals and Showcases. (Any student leaving early from Festivals will not be eligible for Showcases.)


2. Arrive in a timely fashion. Any late arrivals should enter between performances to avoid disruption. (Students arriving late for Festivals will not be eligible for Showcases.)


3. All performers must dress according to the MTAC dress code.


4. Applause is appropriate only at the end of the student's entire performance. Please, no clapping between movements or in between multiple pieces. Enthusiastic applause at the end of the performance is highly recommended and much appreciated!


5. No texting or other distracting device activity during the recital. No flash photography. Parents may only record their child’s performance.


6. No sick children. Sick students will not be allowed to perform.


7. No babies or toddlers. 


All students who perform in a recital setting have put a lot of time and effort into preparation. Following these simple guidelines assures a smoothly flowing program and shows courtesy to all  who perform. Thank you!
