Studio Events

During the year I run studio wide events in the community where students are able to play for others. We have 2  of these events planned for 2021. These events give students who are keen the opportunity to prepare music for a performance and practice at performing it.

In 2019 we had a performance workshop where the audience wrote compliments cards for each of the performers. Last year we played at Fergusson Retirement Village on the beautiful piano you see in many of the photos on this website.

The younger students are working on an incentive programme which follows a story where they gain points for achievement/completion at each lesson. This programme encourages practice, completion of pieces and other skills. We are also enjoying playing a musical theory card (or board) game alternating with a musical online game each month! There are also some budding composers who are busy writing for piano and I’m looking forward to featuring their work in an event in the coming months!

For the adult students we have an evening playing planned with a Sound Track theme followed by supper in July.
