If a student musician is interested in your event, you will be contacted. Students performing as featured performers at non-profit events may donate their time, but if they are requested to perform background or dance music, then payment will be expected. Rates for student musicians are negotiable.

FOR ITHACA COLLEGE STUDENTS

Every semester you should register your ensemble, so the Music Office knows that you are available to be contacted for paid performances. When an opportunity becomes available for your instrumentation, your group's representative will be contacted.

Yes, you do need to supply your own accompanist. Please speak with your studio professor about available student accompanists.

No, you may not cancel booked performance unless you have a major illness, severe weather warnings, or a family emergency. When you fill out the student form, you electronically sign an agreement that commits you to that performance. Venues specifically request Ithaca College School of Music, Theatre, and Dance students to play at their event. Unexpected cancellations are extremely inconvenient to all parties.

Music that is consistently played at a loud dynamic is typically inappropriate for a hospital setting. Please speak to your studio professor about appropriate music selections.
