Performance Information:

Show Order is now live on our Recital Home page. You can also click here to go directly to the show order page.

All Performers will need to arrive AT LEAST 15 minutes ahead of their recital performance block. This will give us the opportunity to get your student checked in, show parents how to access the digital program, & escort you to your performance hall. We will be using 2 performance halls at the church this year due to the growing number of performers!

Performance Attire:

All Performers should be dressed nicely. For our male performers, nice pants & button up tops. For our females, modest and age appropriate skirts and dresses. Please feel encouraged to dress up in your holiday wear!


If you have any questions, please reach out to us at info@texasampsandaxes.com.

End of Semester Reminders

End of Year Student Account Balances

Parents, please be sure to log in to your MyMusicStaff Account and zero out your Account Balance with us by January 1st! Any student with an open balance will be placed on HOLD until the balance is cleared out in anticipation of the new semester. Students with a HOLD status will forfeit their lesson time.

Spring Semester Time Slots

Lesson times for the Winter Semester carry over into the Spring Semester unless a time change request has been made. IF you are in need of a different day/time for your student, please be sure to contact the student immediately so we can begin coordinating that for you. Change requests can be sent to scheduling@texasampsandaxes.com.

As a reminder, TA&A closes for all MAJOR PISD Breaks, we do not close for Teacher workdays or Student Holidays.
