Performance class and other items

Folks, 

Friday 12:20 class is required for everyone, every week. Even if you think you have made arrangements to miss it (through Theatre, or whatever), you must email me during the week you are to miss. I am not going to keep a running list! This is your responsibility.

Each week, a sign-up sheet will be posted on Dr. Mosteller's door. If you are planning on singing, please sign up that week. This will determine performance order, and notifies our pianists of music to prepare.

Class will meet in the recital hall from now on. Be there every week, and be on time! BTW, "on time" means in your seat, focused and ready to begin at 12:20, not rushing in at 12:21. Offering to help move the piano and set the room also shows consideration and initiative, both of which are appreciated. How's that for a hint? ;-)

In other news, we have now begun the third week of class. If you have one-hour lessons and are still learning your first song, you're behind. If you're having trouble, ask for help rather than coming to lessons underprepared. There are only 14 weeks in the semester, and the last lesson is a run-through of all jury repertoire. You must have also sung it ALL in class by then, so do the math with regard to how long you can realistically spend on each piece.
