About Special Events & Performances
Performance opportunities and special events allow students to share their talents in different venues outside of the normal lesson environment (ex. retirement community, hospital, church, or community fundraising event); encouraging students to excel, play with confidence, and have a self-affirming experience. They also provide a much-appreciated service to the community and a way to build camaraderie among students and studio families. There are four main categories of events sponsored and hosted by the studio:
Pop-Up Piano Parties
A "Pop-Up Piano Party" is exactly what it sounds like - a fun gathering of students and families to play and perform songs they know in a low-pressure, high-pleasure experience.
The Accompaniment Workshop is a new opportunity to exercise the skills of collaboration and self-generative learning in a very practical way.
What is it like to take a song you've practiced at home innumerable times - where mistakes are overlooked and forgiven, and the aim is to learn - into a recital/performance environment? There are more differences than you might expect…
Contests & Competitions
Injecting a bit of fun and excitement into students’ day-to-day practice routine is the purpose of these studio-exclusive events, with both prizes and some unexpected “rewards.”
