How do I submit a request?
The deadline for submission of forms was on Monday, January 30 at 4 pm.
Standard Route: Alternating weeks based on a permanently set schedule of each student for the semester. A faculty member should request pianists by filling out an Accompanist Request form by the deadline. A pianist will be assigned by the Accompanying Coordinator to each student who has a regularly scheduled day/time of lesson for the semester.
Alternate Route: Independent hiring. For all whose lessons may shift in day/time. Staff accompanists (from the roster below) may be independently contacted by an instructor to accompany their students.
