Performances are an important part of student growth. Not only are they a great way to show off their musical accomplishments to loved ones, performances and recitals help the student learn presence, confidence and an intangible aspect of playing not easily captured in lessons. We strongly recommend all students participate in the annual recital. Please make it a priority to ensure that the student is able to attend. On top of that, we encourage participation in the low pressure settings we make available for students to perform. This is a phenomenal opportunity for our students, and participation helps them blossom in a supportive performing environment.
Please see below for an up to date listing of performances/recitals.
