Do you bow after playing at a master class?
« on: July 07, 2015, 07:15:11 PM »
Hey so I've had some master classes and I've got another one tomorrow night (I'm playing etude 10/5 even though I haven't touched a piano for a month...  :-\  :-[  ???  ???  ???  >:(  :(  :o  ???   :o ) But anyway, do you take a bow after you get done playing? It's a stupid question I know but I feel awkward taking a bow as he walks over to rip my playing to shreds, but I also feel awkward just sitting there as the observers clap. Is it considered standard etiquette to take a bow?

I had a masterclass about a month ago on the Chopin Military Polonaise, and what I did was stood up slowly and walked over to meet the master (as I had been advised to do, lol). That said, I already met her and the sponsor backstage beforehand.
