The Benefits of Performance

Performances are a great way for piano students of all levels to increase their confidence, ability to adapt and overall confidence. Performances encourage students to improve practice routines when they have goals to work toward.

I am always willing to work with piano students and determine which performance opportunities are right for them. Additionally, we work on performance skills, strategies and enjoying the performance opportunity.

Performance Opportunities 2015 - 2016

This is a list of performance opportunities for students. I encourage students to perform for family and friends at every opportunity. Sometimes performing in a public venue will help inspire the student to the next level.
