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.  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.

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.

    Email videos to kristjon@pakmusic.org 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

    Format must be a downloadable file (.mov, .mp4, etc.).  YouTube links will not be accepted.

    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.

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.
