Studio Events

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

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 to catch cute monsters 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/ board) game alternating with a musical online game each month! There are  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 adult students we held a very successful social event with a theme of Sound Tracks (movies/tv shows/games/musicals ) with supper in July and are planning another before Christmas.
