Performance Class

 

Purpose - To give students an opportunity to play in front of a controlled audience.  Students learn how to try out the piano, to take time to adjust the bench under pressure, perform a piece which is very different from practicing a piece, and also how to say thank you to the audience appropriately.

 

Details - Each performance class lasts about 30 minutes and only students are allowed because of space capacity.  Arrive approximately 5 minutes early and depart at the end of the class promptly.  There is no dress code.  

 

Bring the music of the piece or pieces that are to be performed.  If the parent or parents must wait in the waiting area during the class, keep noise at a minimum.
