Let people know about your talents!
Public music performance is healthy for students in so many ways... helps to build self-confidence, improves public speaking and other public performances, and provides lifetime memories. There are so many opportunities here, both within just my students, as well as through state and national opportunities. Here are some of the many opportunities available:
GK PIANO Performances
Studio Recitals - several times a year in different venues
In-Home Recitals - invite friends and family for a fun, relaxed recital celebration at your house!
Senior Recital - for graduating high school seniors, a fun and culminating project of the many years of hard work!
