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

Themed Recitals

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!




Testing provides a standardized way to evaluate students' progress, and provides incentive to excel to the next level.

See associated links below, highlighted in green.


Competitions are for those who are especially driven to achieve at a high level.  These are highlighted in purple.
