Students Musicale Guide
Student Musicales are performance opportunities for students of DAMTA members, they take place monthly at Classic Pianos on a Sunday at 2:00. Each musicale is hosted by a DAMTA volunteer, thank you to all of our volunteer hosts!
Here is what you all need to know about the musicales this year:
● Each participating teacher (including the host) should take up no more that 20
minutes of the program,one of the greatest benefits of these musicales is mixing our
students and teachers together.
● There is a $10 fee per student to participate in each musicale, the fee will go into our
scholarship fund. This fee must be paid before the performance.
● The student should be thoroughly prepared musically, but memorization is not required.
● Teachers should prepare their students with performance etiquette: entrance, bowing,
dress.
● Copyright laws must be observed; all music must be an original publication, licensed for reprint, or in the public domain. Photocopying of copyrighted music is illegal.
Here is what you need to know as a host:
1. Send out a Passalong about two weeks before the musicale to invite DAMTA members to sign up their students, they should include performers’ names, musical selections and length of performance. Include a deadline (the deadline is up to you) for them to sign up by.
2. Remind all participating teachers there there is a $10 per student fee. Teachers
can pay for their students via PayPal on the musicale payment page found in the members only area on our website; please tell teachers to write ‘[Insert month] musicale fees’ under ‘other info.’ if they use PayPal. The teachers can also bring a check to you the day of the musicale. It is the teachers’ responsibility to take care of the student fee, it is your responsibility to make sure fees are collected.
We have a strict no pay-no perform policy To ensure all fees are collected prior to
the performance, you must log the performers as they arrive on the form provided in the
members only area of DAMTA’s website. This should be turned in to the musicale chair
(Megan Koegel) after the performance.
3. Create a program for the musicale. You can use the template provided in the
members only area of our website, or you may create your own as long as it includes the DAMTA logo. Please bring enough copies of the program for your audience on the day of the musicale. You may be reimbursed for up to $10 in printing costs. After the musicale, please send a PDF of the program to missmeganpiano@gmail.com
4. All musicales start at 2:00, you may arrive up to 30 minutes early to get into the space.
Each musicale should last about an hour, if there is a high demand for a particular date second recital may be added at 3:30. It is up to the host whether they would like to host a second recital, or recruit another participating teacher to host.
5. I encourage you to chose a theme for your musicale if you like! That said, anyone
who wants to perform should not be turned away if they would like to perform something that doesn’t fit the theme. At meetings in the past year we have discussed possibly designating themes in the future, some ideas that were discussed include: animals, broadway, dances, etc.
Please note that we have designated the November and March musicales to feature
collaborative performances.
6. You may bring refreshments if you like, but there will be no reimbursement for this.
You may contact the musicale chair, Megan Koegel at missmeganpiano@gmail.com with any questions.
