piano repertoire class

Performing is different from practicing. During practice, one always looks back, but in a performance one has to go forward. This class is designed to practice performing.

 

Once a piece is well learned, students come to this class and perform it, practicing all the aspects that create a performance, including bows and stage presence.

 

Also they are exposed to different repertoire, getting inspired and motivated. In addition, by sharing their own playing and experiences with other players, students and parents grow friendship with their peers.
