Recital FAQ

Is there a cost for students to participate in the recital?

Yes, a $25 recital fee applies to the first student and $5 for each additional student (if applicable) within the same family. The recital fee will be deducted from the account on file along with tuition.

What time should students arrive?

Students should arrive 15 minutes before the start of their recital time. Arriving early ensures that a student has the time to tune their instrument, speak with their instructor, find their place on the program, and acclimate to the environment before going on stage.

At what point is a student ready to perform in a recital?

A student can be ready to perform in a recital as early as a few weeks into lessons. While a recital performance is a time to share a student’s talent with family and friends, it’s also a time for a student to get better at a very important skill – performing. Performing is part of being a musician; the more a musician does it, the more comfortable they become. So in order to be able to perform, a student just needs to know one song – long or short, simple or difficult – just one.

How long does each recital last?

Recitals at the Moonlight Ballroom typically last 45-55 minutes. Recitals at the Steinway Piano Gallery typically last 25-35 minutes. We ask that each audience member and student stay until the end of the recital out of respect for the other performers.

Are audience members allowed to record and take photos?

Yes! It’s encouraged. Please take as many photos and videos as you’d like. Please share them on our Facebook page or Instagram.

I'm nervous about performing. What should I do?

You’re not alone. Many students get nervous before a performance. The most important thing is that you are prepared to play your recital song/piece.  On stage, you are simply showing the audience something you have done many times in a SAMA practice room or at home in your bedroom. And because you’ve played/sung your recital song/piece so many times, you’ll be able to play/sing it one more time. So don’t worry – you’ll do great!

San Antonio Music Academy is very well organized. My daughter's piano teacher is wonderful! She's been taking lessons for 5 months and looks forward to each lesson. I really enjoy the recitals at the LOL Comedy Club.
