This is a safe, fun, and supportive environment for students to perform solo material that we've been working on at lessons. If you're a parent who hears your student practicing at home, but has yet to see them perform, this is the event for you! Or, if you have a student that you rarely hear practicing, sign them up and I promise they'll start! An accompanist will be provided (fee TBA) for traditional material, for most pop/rock, we'll use tracks. Please RSVP your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 21st. I'll need a minimum of 5 participants to make it happen.
