STUDIO EVENTS - MORE THAN JUST LESSONS!
Mock recitals are a chance to practice performing, play fun music games and get to know other kids of the same age who love music too! Students are grouped by age, not ability, and no group is larger than 12 students. Mock recitals are held at the studio three times a year, in addition to the normally scheduled lesson. These events are carefully planned to give students a fun and highly valuable musical experience!!
OTHER PERFORMING OPPORTUNITIES
Students are encouraged to perform in festivals, competitions, and other local performances as often as possible. Through teacher membership in professional music organizations, students who show readiness for the adjudication process are invited to participate in events such as the following:
RPTA (Raleigh Piano Teachers Association) Young Artist Auditions
RPTA (Raleigh Piano Teachers Association) Ensemble Festival
NCMTA (N.C. Music Teachers Association) Performance Festival
NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) Student Auditions
DMTA (Durham Music Teachers Association) Performance Festival
ANNUAL SPRING RECITAL
Public performance is never required; however students at all levels enrolled in our program are highly encouraged to participate! The rewards of a good performance are many, including motivation to practice and grow, boost confidence, refine performance practices and inspiration for more learning. The annual spring recital is a culmination event to celebrate all of the progress and great work students have dedicated to music making throughout the school year. Family and friends are all invited!
