Steps for signing up your students:
• Review all of the music (available for review and same-day checkout in
the YC office) and determine which students will be able to learn it
quickly and play it (and count it) comfortably. Students can
participate in more than one of the numbers as long as they can make
all rehearsals, and you’re confident they can play every number
• Talk with your students and their parents to see if they are willing to
prepare well for the concert, make the necessary rehearsals (the
week of February 3), and the concert itself.
• Repertoire sign-ups will appear on the YC white board outside the YC
office on Monday, October 28. If you’re off-campus, and need me to
sign your students up, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please sign
up your students’ full names in pencil. Each piece will have a specific
amount of open slots, and after that there will be a waiting list. Sign
your students up early to make sure they get a slot on the program!
• Give each student all necessary parent acknowledgement forms
(available on the table outside the YC office), filling in the student
name and part assigned. Once the form is signed and returned to you
from parents, check off that student’s name on the signup sheet, or
e-mail me their names and I’ll check them off. Any students not
checked off by Friday, January 17 may lose their slot to someone on
the waiting list.
• Students will need to purchase an original copy of the music assigned
(NO PHOTOCOPIES). Music is available for purchase from the Book
Table (29 S Main, 435-752, 3055), Daynes’ Music (6935 S. State St.
Midvale, UT; 800-780-6857), or online vendors. Encourage them to
begin practicing their part now, and to spend time working on it during
• Recordings of all pieces are available for teachers and students to
review at the Monster Concert link on the YC website
(www.usu.edu/ycpiano). Rehearsal schedules and other information will
be posted there, as well, so keep checking the site.
Tuesday (January 28), we will have our final Monster Concert
Planning Meeting in Room 214 at 7 pm. Please plan to be there.
• There are several speaking parts for the Monster Concert, and we
would like as many students from a variety of teaching studios to
participate in these speaking parts. If you know of a student who
would enjoy learning lines and presenting them confidently, please let
me know at email@example.com.
* Tuesday, February 4 or Wednesday, February 5 (time slots
between 3:30-6:30, various classrooms)
Each piece is assigned a 30-minute time slot on either Tuesday
or Wednesday. Since this is the first time students will be
playing the piece in an ensemble, this is a crucial rehearsal for
students to attend. If a student is playing two pieces that
meet at identical times, encourage them to spend 15 minutes in
each room. Please let me know if there is an emergency that
creates a conflict with this rehearsal.
* Friday, February 7 (time slots between 3:30-7:30, various
classrooms ending in the Kent Concert Hall)
Each piece is assigned a time slot in one of the upstairs
classrooms. Halfway through the rehearsal, that group will
move to the Kent Concert Hall stage for some final runthroughs.
Plan on the entire rehearsal slot taking between
45 minutes and one hour, and parents should plan to meet the
students in the Kent Concert Hall at the completion of the
* Saturday, February 8 (9:00-11:30, Kent Concert Hall)
This Dress Rehearsal takes place entirely in the Kent (notice
the later start time this year). Students will meet in their
assigned group seats in the Kent, and once their segment is
completed on the run-through, they are free to leave. Any
students with speaking parts should plan on saying their lines
and brining any props or costumes they will be using.
* Saturday, February 8 (6:00 pm, Kent Concert Hall)
Students should be in their assigned seats for the
performance NO LATER THAN 5:40. The entire concert
should take a little over an hour.
