Website Help (FAQs)
Where is such-and-such on the website?!
At the top of each web page you will see a list of the main categories. Most visitors will desire the pages under "Membership Resources;" hover over it and see the sub pages available. There is also a search box above and on the Home page.
When does the calendar of events come out?
The calendar has to get approved by the Board in May, then confirmed by the various venues, usually mid-summer. It will be emailed to membership, as well as available for download on the Calendar page.
How can I get calendar changes throughout the year?
The current link to the calendar is to a document that can be edited regularly, if needed. If you always look there, it will be up-to-date. Emails will also be sent out to notify of any changes to the calendar. It is imperative that you change your email with MTNA because DSMTA gets your contact info from there. Even if you have emailed from your new email, our list comes from MTNA, not previous emails.
How can I get the Theory Papers? It is asking for a password!
Yes, you must be a current DSMTA member or student to use the copyrighted Theory Papers. If you are a current member, your newsletters have the password. (If you cannot find a newsletter in your email, please contact Kerry. Note that gmail "bundles" the newsletter into "Promotions" so do a search for "DSMTA newsletter" and it may come up in your email.)
How do I register for festivals?
Under Membership Resources, go to "Festival Registrations". Instructions for logging in are in a Registration Guide.
Where can I get the current festival rules?
You can download them and view them at Festival Guidelines.
What forms do I need for each festival?
Paper Forms are no longer accepted for festivals. If you use old forms your application will not be processed. All info is on the Festival Registration page. Forms online do not need "transmittal" or "application" forms as we used to have. Theory and Solo Piano still have a Volunteer requirement, which is listed on the Festival Registration page and done via online submission.
Where do I send my forms?
You may not send festival forms anywhere, as we are no longer using forms. DSMTA recitals application still has an address listed on the application for the Chair.
"Activities Report" send to firstname.lastname@example.org ; "Reimbursement Form" and Checks send to DSMTA/Eric Benson
