All keyboard students on scholarship who have elected to receive funds for accompanying are assigned accompanying duties by the piano professor.┬á Accompanying duties include:┬á vocal or instrumental students, or ensembles.
Accompanists must attend applied lessons with vocalists/instrumentalists, and accompany these students on Student Recital Hours and for Jury exams.┬á If assigned an ensemble, the accompanist must attend all ensemble rehearsals.
It is the responsibility of the vocalist/instrumentalist to pay an accompanist for junior/senior recitals, off-campus performances and competitions.┬á The soloist and accompanist should learn the music independently.┬á Joint rehearsal is strictly for ensemble.┬á Accompanists should be provided with the music at least three weeks prior to a recital performance.
Joint rehearsal times are as follows:
- 2 Hours Credit:┬á 30 minutes of outside rehearsal and 30-minute lesson.
- 1 Hour Credit:┬á 15 minutes of outside rehearsal and 15-minute lesson.
