What if I am self-taught or my parent teaches me?
When the parent creates the profile, they should select both the “entrant’s parent” and “entrant’s teacher” boxes to complete their profile. If the entrant is over age 18, they may also select both the “entrant” and “entrant’s teacher” options.
What if I have not received my profile confirmation?
Check your junk folder. Music Festival Suite emails sometimes end up there. Once you have found this email, please add the sender to your contacts so that no future festival communications end up in the same place.
What if I have multiple children/family members sharing the same email address?
Participants can use the same email address to create a profile, however it is the password that differentiates the accounts, so be sure to write down somewhere each family member’s name and password so as to avoid confusion (It also works to use their Profile ID to login instead of email address to avoid confusion.)
