Performance Program

Performance Program 2021-2022

Performances classes and recitals will return to in-person for the 21-22 school year.  We will actively review state and local guidelines to determine if any of these events will require a temporary transfer to remote sessions.  The status of our bi-annual Honors Recital, usually held in late winter, is to be determined.

Our school year calendar can be found here.

Performance Classes & Accompanist Rehearsals

Perform LIVE amongst peers in a closed, learning-focused environment. 
These informal weekday evening classes provide ongoing opportunities for students to practice performance skills throughout the school year.  Typical classes feature 6-10 students and run about 30-45 minutes in length.

Performance Class & Accompanist Rehearsal Sign-up Forms

Rehearsals are available for students performing works that require piano accompaniment.  These run during the hour preceding class.  Please note that teacher approval is required to perform.
UPDATE 10/7/21: Due to the recent rise in COVID cases in the area, we are only allowing 5 family units to participate in each performance class.

*Dates in January and beyond will be posted in early December.

Dress code for performance classes is casual.

  1. Virtual Performance Class Submission Requirements

    Virtual performance classes are pre-recorded and are viewable in their entirely following premiere.  Participating families will receive an unlisted YouTube link at class start.

    Videos must be emailed to by the deadline.  If piano accompaniment is required, sheet music must be included with the video submission.

    Submitted videos require:

    • 5-seconds of silence before and after speaking/playing
    • speaking portion before playing: the performer’s first name AND the title and composer of piece to be performed
    • a smile and bow after performing

    Use landscape (wide/horizontal) viewing angle to ensure the best video edit.  Keep the camera steady throughout.  Employ good lighting.  Keep background noise/sound to a minimum.

Student Recitals

Perform LIVE amongst family and friends in a public performance environment.
These formal weekend performances give students the opportunity to showcase a mastered piece or two in front of an enthusiastic audience.  Typical recitals feature 12-16 students with an audience of 60+ and are about an hour long.
UPDATE 10/7/21: Due to the recent rise in COVID cases in the area, we are suspending student recitals until further notice.

Student Recital Sign-up Forms

*Online sign-up forms will be available when our performance program resumes in-person student recitals*

Formalwear (i.e. “Sunday’s Best”) is required.  Please note that participation in at least one performance class is necessary prior to signing-up for a recital.
