We have many exciting things ahead of us this spring here at Piano Central, one of which is an event that really enhances our students’ musical and artistic growth: MUSIC & ART FEST!
Music Fest is an annual event that showcases the musical accomplishments of all the students here at Piano Central. This year our 2011 Music & Art Fest will be on Saturday, April 30 between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm at our Pleasantburg Drive studio location. Students will be assigned a short 7-minute window in which to perform, so the event will not take much time out of your day.
During this special event, students will be playing two prepared pieces for the judge (usually their recital piece and another selection). Because of space constraints, this is a student-judge only event. In order to help students concentrate fully and do their best, we will ask parents, siblings, and friends to wait in the waiting room.
Each participant will receive positive feedback and constructive suggestions for improvement, all of which will result in an overall rating. Special recognition will be given to all Music & Art Fest participants at the Spring Recital.
In addition, all students receiving a SUPERIOR PLUS rating will be invited to participate in a SHOWCASE RECITAL at Haywood Mall on Saturday, May 7, from 10 am to 2 pm.
These kinds of events are a very positive experience for our students. They get to see their peers, show off how much they know and have learned, and really feel good about themselves. Adult students are welcome to participate too. The Music & Art Fest is NOT a test or a high-pressure event, nor is it a competition. Our intention is that it be a fun, rewarding, and motivating experience for all.
