Performance classes and student recitals are in-person for 2022-2023.

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 8 to 15 students with an audience of 60+ and are about an hour long. Students must have teacher approval, as well as participate in at least one performance class within two months of the recital date. Formalwear (i.e. “Sunday’s Best”) is required for performers and audience.
To be equitable with seating for each family:
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, running the hour preceding class, are available for students performing works that require piano accompaniment. Please note that teacher approval is required to perform. Dress code for performance classes is casual.
If the student withdraws for reasons other than sickness with less than one week’s notice, or they do not show up for a confirmed class, a $15 withdrawal fee will be applied to the account. This is because the work required to schedule and manage performance classes for both faculty and staff is significant. The School wishes to keep these classes available without additional fees; so, the withdrawal fee is in place to remind families that classes should be considered a priority commitment due to the time/cost for managing the classes.
