For the last 18 years, every student who takes piano lessons with me has been offered many chances to perform on stage. Even prior to the pandemic, we were live streaming so that family and friends far and wide could enjoy the recitals just as if they were right there in person!
This was a hybrid recital in October 2021!
Students pre-recorded videos and we watched together on Zoom !

We have at least one formal recital each school year (usually around the holiday season), and others are themed and more “for fun.”
I don’t require any of my students to participate; however, I strongly encourage it. When you take piano lessons, part of the process is to learn how to overcome any fears you may have about performing – the earlier you learn this, the better! I work closely with my students to help them become the best at performing their pieces they can be.
