Students taking private lessons demonstrate their musical development in front of family and friends at a recital at the end of the year. During private lessons, students work closely with their instructor to choose and perfect challenging yet fun pieces that highlight their personal progress. The recital, a semi-formal occasion, allows music students the opportunity to build confidence, receive appropriate recognition, and encourage one another. At the end of the recital, awards are given for achievement and faithful participation. Recitals are free and open to the public.
Elementary and high school performing groups showcase their achievements at a Christmas concert and a spring awards concert. The Christmas concert strengthens students᾿ abilities to perform together as a group and celebrates the holiday, and the spring awards concert allows these performing groups to present selections highlighting their skills. Awards are presented at this concert to individual students who have excelled and played a key role within their group. These concerts are free and open to the public.
