Recital Information

Our recitals are fun and exciting for both the participants and the audience. Everyone is invited. Admission is free. To register for a recital please fill out the
Recital Registration Form

Students are encouraged to play in the recitals and use their skills. Our teachers take great care in preparing students for the recitals.

Trophies are awarded for Student of the year, most improved student, Technical Excellence, Composer of the year, Best Recital Performance. Certificate awards are given for special achievements.

During the holiday season we arrange shows at many of the Convalescent Hospitals and homes. This is a great way for students to provide a little pleasure for these people, some of whom have no family to take care of them over the holiday season. Students often tell us that they love these shows because they can use their skills and do a good deed.

Please watch the RECITAL SCHEDULE link on this page for the dates and places of any shows and recitals.
