Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in music lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital.
In May and December many of our students choose to perform in our biannual recitals. We also are continually adding other performance and recording opportunities for our students. Your child will love the opportunity to rock out on the big stage with a real rock band, play in front of their peers at local venues and get professional recordings of songs that they are working on. You are encouraged to bring your family and friends to the show and share in the fun of music! Our performers either perform in groups like in our Rock Band Classes, perform with a teacher, or perform a solo piano or guitar piece. Visit our videos page to see some of the performances!
