Performance Guidelines

  • Each studio has a total performance time limit of 2 hours, regardless of the number of students entered. This is a maximum amount of time allowed and not a required time commitment.  
  • If a teacher cannot use the entire time slot assigned to their studio, they should notify the chairperson so that schedule adjustments can be made. Teachers should not give away their assigned time to other colleagues without first discussing scheduling with the chairperson. 
  • Only students who have registered for this event are eligible to perform. Students who did not meet the registration deadline will not be allowed to perform.
  • Instruments allowed: (a) All solo instruments. (b) Ensembles.

All instrumental ensembles are welcome as long as each individual instrument does not exceed 50 pounds.  Risers will not be available for choral ensembles.
**Please keep in mind that electrical outlets will not be available.**

  • Teachers must be present at least 10 minutes before their studio’s performance time and during the entire performance.  Please strictly adhere to the time slot assigned.

Entry process

  • Online enrollment will be available on the SAMTA website.  Each performer, excluding the teacher, counts as one student.
  • Print out a copy of your online enrollment and send it, along with one check (made payable to SAMTA) postmarked on or before the deadline to:

Heather Stagg, 10924 Vance Jackson, Ste. 401, San Antonio, TX 78230.

  • Performance programs are welcome but not mandatory.  These programs should serve as a keepsake for your students, their family, and friends.  Please, no logos, sponsors or advertisers.  Programs may not be sold.
