Performance is an integral part of our school curriculum.
Preparing for a performance enables students to grow as
musicians, develops self–confidence and teaches students about
achieving goals. The school offers numerous opportunities for
performance, including: group classes, informal and formal
recitals, music festivals and competitions. Instructors recommend
appropriate performance opportunities based on each student’s
preparation and readiness.
