For the last 15 years, every student who takes piano lessons with me has been offered many chances to perform on stage – and just recently added – perform on a live stream!
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.
