During music lessons, students are taught the proper respect and handling of instruments. For instance, musicians learn to pay respect to instruments before and after playing, to avoid foot contact with instruments and to walk around instruments without stepping over them.

During Temple festivals, selected students will have the opportunity to perform for temple guests.
