How much does it cost to put on a recital at CSUEB?


Something I've been meaning to post here for a while. A breakdown of the cost of organizing a recital at CSUEB:

4-hour room reservation (w/ piano): $285
Event insurance: $83
Room monitor: approx. $50 (often this person doesn't show up)
100 Recital programs: $69.92 (this cost is exorbitant)
Stamps for correspondence: $1

Additional outlays:
- 6 hours of unpaid group rehearsal time
- Gas & vehicle mileage
- 3-4 hours spent formatting the program

June 2014 Teaching schedule


-- My teaching schedule for June will be uninterrupted. Lesson payments for June should be made out for the full month plus the $15 per student recital fee.

-- The next student recital is scheduled for the afternoon of Saturday, June 21st in the music building recital hall at CSUEB. 

Group 1 will begin at 2:30pm and Group 2 will begin at 4:00pm.

-- During the summer, there is one week I will not be teaching. Here are the dates when there will be no lessons:
August 20 - August 26

I teach year-round, including the summer months of July & August. I know that many of you will be traveling for vacation during those months. The policy that I have adopted for summer teaching is this: each student needs to pay for a minimum of 4 lessons for the months of July & August in order to reserve a lesson time for the fall. If I do not receive this summer payment then I can't guarantee a spot on my student roster for the next school year.

-- There will be no Song of the Month for June. We will be restarting this project in July.

Have a happy day,
Jesse
