PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITIES. Music Showcase encourages their students to perform and showcase what they’re learning in lessons. There are monthly recitals in the Music Showcase auditorium and opportunities to perform at various community events throughout the year. Students can also further their musical growth by participating in clinics with well-known professionals and workshops. Students and parents should ask their instructor or a school representative about participating in the concerts.
Since the opening of the school, we have grown and are making a lot of positive changes. Due to the growth and excitement of our students, we are always trying new things (i.e., recitals, clinics with well-known professionals, concerts, etc.). Please ask your instructor or visit our website about monthly recitals and other events.
