Mobile Phones, Audience Etiquette and Respect for All

Mobile Phones, Audience Etiquette and Respect for All | Middle School Music at Saigon South International School | Scoop.it

How many times have we all gone to a movie or a concert and had to endure someone around us discussing their personal life on their mobile phone? In my personal opinion, the only time a mobile phone should ring or be used in such a situation is when there is an emergency involved (and no, an update on the life of your favourite singer or actor is not an emergency).

 

Performers in a concert, dance recital or play have worked extremely hard to prepare themselves for the rigors of a staged event. It is a simple sign of respect to give such performers your complete attention while they demonstrate their skills, ability and love of their art. As well, other audience members are there to enjoy the beauty and wonder of a performance.

 

Every time someone's mobile phone rings, or they begin to answer a call or text a message they are demonstrating to the musicians, actors, dancers, and the other audience members that they don't care about what is happening. They don't care about other people around them.

 

At SSIS we teach students the concept of respect for all. When parents, siblings or friends demonstrate disrespect by using a mobile phone inappropriately, they are teaching students to be rude and uncaring. So, here are a few tips on how to show respect at a performance or event;

 

          Turn your mobile phone to vibrate or, better yet, turn it off

 

          Don’t let small children run around the auditorium or

          make excessive noise  

 

          Arrive early for a performance. If you don’t you will miss

          something wonderful

 

These are just a few easy guidelines that will help make a performance a memorable occasion for everyone concerned. Thank you.
