Sharing Successes through Performances
Learning how to perform in public is a significant educational component of music study. We believe that frequent performances in a friendly, informal atmosphere remove many symptoms of “stage fright” and give students the opportunity to develop skills necessary for successful performance in other aspects of life. While we do not anticipate that every student will participate, we encourage students to understand that performance participation is an important and fun way to share their talents with others.
EarthTone offers the following performance opportunities:
EarthTone Students Recitals – This experience enables students to gain feedback from their peers, feel more comfortable with performing, and develop confidence. Since recitals are also great motivators, they help instructors teach students how to develop stage presence, memorization, projection, communication and impact. Levels range from first year students to those with years of experience playing advanced repertoire on their instruments. Family and friends are always encouraged to attend.
Annual Concert & Workshop – These events present an opportunity to hear exceptional performances from our outstanding faculty of teaching artists. They offer a way to introduce different cultures, composers, explore how music tells stories in an interactive way, and learn what to listen to and how to listen to the music. Interactive demonstrations, explanations, and one-on-one interaction with musicians-performers are all elements of these exciting and captivating concerts.
Competition: EarthTone always believed in the benefits of enrolling students in formal assessment/competitive events, both for the students involved as well as teacher. This teaches the students about time management and the importance of meeting deadlines – immensely useful skills to have in all aspects of life.
Coping with nerves, anxiety, racing heartbeats, and learning to perform one’s best under pressure is one of the most important life skills students can learn.
