Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital. ​

​Every June and December, our students have the option of performing in our recitals.  Students are not required to perform, but many choose to. Parents never have to pay admission or any related fees for recitals.
