About Special Events & Performances
Studio 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.”
