Recitals

Recitals

The studio hosts an annual formal recital in December, and sometimes an additional informal recital in May.  The location of recitals varies with availability and opportunity.  In the past we have held concerts at Jacob’s Music Recital Hall in Cherry Hill, the Kurtz Center for Performing Arts in Philadelphia, and LaMonte Hall at The Evergreens.

The piano is a performance instrument, so frequent, polished performances are encouraged.  Amber approaches public performance in a way that makes it an exciting, rewarding aspect of a student’s curriculum. While some students may express uneasiness about playing in public, the best way to overcome performance anxiety is to make performance a frequent, normal part of a student’s playing career from the very start.  One formal performance per year is mandatory.

Students are encouraged to build repertoire by reviewing the pieces they have previously played but are no longer working on in class.  Students who do so are permitted to play several pieces per recital if they have kept their repertoire in polished condition.
