Sharing music with others makes music- making more enjoyable for everyone involved. Therefore, participation in performance opportunities is required of each student. Monthly class recitals, ensembles, public recitals, and piano festivals (additional festival fees required) teach students about music and performing. Students will not only become more secure musically, but the poise gained may be transferred to other life situations. Look upon these performance activities as great opportunities to learn more about music and yourselves.
