Every student at KeyNotes Piano Studio, whether child or adult, beginner or advanced, has multiple performance opportunities each year.
The backbone of these are the two studio-wide recitals, which take place in December and June of each year at the world-class performance facilities of the Florida State University College of Music.
Before each of the two recitals, each student must perform a dress rehearsal in front of their peers. Additionally, once a semester, a group lesson is offered for students to showcase pieces currently in progress. Masterclasses with guests are also offered, typically once a year. For more ambitious students, festivals and competitions are available throughout the city, state, and country, as well as internationally.
I pair KNPS students of similar levels to explore the duo and duet piano literature. More advanced students are also matched with string players to perform in string ensembles.
Finally, one benefit for adult students at KeyNotes Piano Studio is our monthly meetings, in which just the adults gather, and play for each other. While this meeting is voluntary, many students find that playing for each other, both encourages and inspires them.
For more information about our next meeting, please consult our calendar.
