Click here for additional posts on what to include in your policy. 

Performing for an audience is an important part of the learning process. In this section of your policy you will want to outline the type and number of performances you want your students to participate in. You may want to address the following points, if applicable:

  • How many recitals a year will you hold? Are they mandatory?
  • Are family and friends invited to the recitals?
  • How many pieces will they be expect to know for the recital? Will they need to memorize their music?
  • Some teachers require students play a certain number of “casual” recitals before they perform in a more formalized setting. A casual recital may include playing at school, nursing homes, church, in your studio for other students, for family members, etc.
  • Do you require your students to participate in musical festivals and competitions? If so, how many per year? What are the fess for the festivals your studio participates in? Festivals can be stressful so a parent may want to know if you require this, especially if their child does not handle stress or competition well.
This part of my policy is pretty simple, but I’ll still include it below as an example. You may use any portion of it.

Generally, I hold a year-end recital in late May or early June. Students are expected to learn and memorize 2-3 songs to perform for other students and family. This is an important part of the musical process: learning to share and perform.   Students on my waiting list are encouraged to attend the recital with their parents.

I encourage my students to perform in casual settings as often as possible. This is not required, but strongly recommended.

I really liked the casual recital idea. I was always worried about the disastrous results of performance anxiety (having experienced it myself). A few casual recitals prior to the formal recital would probably have really helped.

Educational exhibition is also very important for those who are near to completing their studies or for those who are completed yet. This type of exhibition is very fruitful and helps the student in choosing their careers as well. So for the prosperity of country government should organize these type of events.


Every institute have a different rules and regulation. Students follows these rules and regulation other wise stuck off the class just like uninformed absent etc.

There is something to be gained from each and every performer or band out there. Listen to how your most loved performers develop their melodies—analyze the style, the tone, how diverse instruments cooperate et cetera. You can actualize a considerable lot of the same thoughts into your own music or even take some of their riffs and change them to fit your style. This is an extraordinary approach to think of new melodies.To know more visit clavis.nl
