Performance Program 2022-2023
Performance classes and student recitals are in-person for 2022-2023. We’re still “recovering” from COVID disruptions. What that means is that performance class participation is slower than in prior years; with more class dates or recital dates cancelled than usual. We hope to find our way back to a “rhythm” for the 2023-2024 school year.
We realize there is a LOT of information on this page. That is one reason why we consider the Performance Program a full program. Please take time to scan and digest so you have the information you need once your child might be interested and ready to participate.

Performance Program Overview
Perform LIVE with 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.
Performance Classes are the center of the student performance program. These classes are where we learn skills for performance. Classes are most beneficial when students participate regularly.
Typical classes feature 6-10 students and run about 30-45 minutes in length. Rehearsals, running the hour preceding class start time, 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.
Performance Class Sign-Up and Rosters
Student rosters are updated regularly based on sign-up forms received.
Please arrive on time for your assigned performance class and accompanist rehearsal, if applicable.
2022-2023 School Year Classes
June: Performance Class
Friday, June 2 @ 6:30 PM & 7:00 PM Classes confirmed.
Class Withdrawal Policy & Fee
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.
Virtual Performance Classes
Virtual performance classes are pre-recorded and are viewable anytime following their premiere. Participating families will receive an unlisted YouTube link at class start.

- Check that you have your teacher’s approval for readiness to participate.
- Select your desired “Virutal PC” as posted in the performance class section above; and submit a sign-up form.

- Submitted videos require:
- 5-seconds of silence before and after speaking/playing

- a smile and bow after performing
Format must be a downloadable file (.mov, .mp4, etc.). YouTube links cannot be accepted.
Please 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.
