Etiquette

ETIQUETTE ASSESSMENT – Criterion D ‘Responding’

ATL SKILLS: Communication Skills

As musicians it is important for us to review the basics of etiquette with all students in order to get the most out of our weekly classes and rehearsals.  Please use the resources below as a guide to give your views on what ‘Etiquette’ means to you and how it is needed for success as a student and musician. 

Our music program at YIS has a history of being an exciting, positive experience for everyone, and in order to keep it this way, we expect all of its members to be aware of and follow certain etiquette.  These procedures are essential to our success as a group, and to allow the music we make together to be the absolute best it can be.
