Mannes Prep Student Resources

Regular, weekly attendance at all Mannes Prep classes is very important. However, we do recognize that on rare occasions students might need to miss class. Students/families should notify the Prep office and all teachers of any planned absences at least two weeks in advance using the absence notification form

In case of illness, please notify us at [email protected] as soon as possible. 

Use the OnceHub scheduling tool to make arrangements for an accompanist. Note that each Mannes Prep student is allowed one 1/2 hour rehearsal per Mannes Prep event. 

Please complete the workshop sign up form at least one week prior to the student’s workshop date. Students are required to attend the entire workshop which they participate in. If you need to make a change or cancellation at a later date, please contact [email protected] 

Please complete the recital sign up form at least one week prior to the student’s workshop date. Students are required to attend the entire workshop which they participate in. If you need to make a change or cancellation at a later date, please contact [email protected] 

Workshops

  • Parents and teachers are not allowed in workshops. Workshops are an opportunity for students to hone their performance skills in a supportive, closed, and small group setting.
  • When participating in Prep workshops, students are required to attend the workshop for the entire duration. If a student is unable to stay for the entire workshop hour, please choose an alternate date. As a courtesy to every student performing in the workshop, it’s important to have as few disruptions as possible. Additionally, when students leave early, they miss out on the opportunity to hear their fellow students perform in a closed session and receive fresh insight from a different faculty perspective.
  • Students must successfully complete a workshop in order to perform on a recital.
  • If an accompanist is required, it is the responsibility of the teacher to arrange for the accompanist.
  • The teacher should complete the workshop sign up form at least one week in advance.
  • The workshop and recital schedule for each semester is included in the academic calendar.
  • Students may perform a maximum of 3 workshops per semester for each instrument they study at Mannes Prep. Students may perform for a maximum of 6 minutes of music.

 

Recitals

  • Recitals are an opportunity for students to perform for family, friends, and Prep audiences in a warm and friendly environment.
  • Students may play in a recital only after a successful workshop performance.
  • Because not all students participate in workshops with the goal of performing in a recital and students have various scheduling requirements, students are not automatically placed in recitals after workshops.
  • The teacher should complete the recital sign-up form at least one week in advance.
  • Provide the following information:
    • Student Name, Age, & Instrument
    • Teacher Name
    • Composer / Title
    • Accurate Duration
    • Accompanist (arrangements are the responsibility of the teacher)
  • A student or parent may sign-up for a recital only with the expressed permission of the private teacher.
  • If a student is to play a workshop only one week before the desired recital date, the teacher may sign-up the student for the recital even though the outcome of the workshop is still unknown. If the student is deemed unready the Prep office will contact the private teacher.
  • Students may perform a maximum of 2 recitals per semester on each instrument they study at Mannes Prep.
  • Parents, family members, teachers, and friends are all welcome and encouraged to attend student recitals! However, we ask that out of respect for all of our talented young performers, everyone plans on attending the full recital. Should you arrive to a performance late, please only enter during the applause between pieces.

  • It is the responsibility of the private teacher to arrange for an accompanist track when needed. For more information about accompaniment during remote delivery, be in touch with your private teacher.
