Absolutely! There’s no better way to grow as a musician than to perform live, and we encourage it as often as possible.
For years, we’ve hosted recitals and rock band concerts for our students at least four times a year, in various Cedar Park and Austin venues — but while we’re still in social distancing mode, our recitals have turned into awesome virtual Open Mic nights, held through Zoom, each with a maximum of 12 performers. Students can email us any time to be added to the list for the next one, and if there’s open space, students and teachers can just show up and request to play on a first-come, first-served basis. There are no recital fees for the Zoom events!
Once it’s safe to hold our recitals in venues again, the recital fee will go back to $30 per family, or if students have valid makeup codes on their account, they can use those to pay for recitals too.
