I am an active member of the following organizations: SMTA (Sarasota Music Teachers Association) FSMTA (Florida State Music Teachers Association MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) FFMC Florida Federation of Music Clubs NFMC(National Federation of Music Clubs)
These organizations provide performance and evaluation opportunities. I enter students in several events throughout the school year. I generally prepare all my students but participation is up to you! Other opportunities are available for performance including scholarships & awards.
I have two annual recitals for my studio only. Lately they have been virtual recitals uploaded to YouTube. I'm hoping to have at least one in-person recital this year, depending on the pandemic. I will have group classes prior to each recital so students can perform for each other in a casual setting (we always have refreshments of some kind> see the photo gallery for proof!)
I have been at my current location since 2002. I am fortunate to have a separate building with a space designated for my pianos and students. There is plenty of space for parking. I also have a large yard for siblings to play if you don't want to wait inside the studio.
