Dear students, families and friends!
Thank you to all those who were able to make our Easter concert. It was such a great success and our performers were absolutely fantastic. It was lovely to meet some of you in person and to see students of all ages get up there and give it a go!
In order for us to share our musical journeys, we've arranged another relaxed performance practice session.
We are back at Brighton College for our summer concert and I have scheduled a small change to the concert programme.
Doors open at 4:00pm with the concert starting at 4:30pm. It will feature all of our student performances. I expect this to last approximately 1 hour but it might overrun a little.
There will be a break for around 15 minutes. We will then begin the teacher performances. The teacher concert is a great opportunity to listen to some fantastic music but There is no obligation to stay for the teacher concert. I appreciate that those with young children will be fidgety after sitting for over an hour! :0)
Equally, for those students who would prefer to listen to the teacher performances, you are welcome to arrive around 5:30pm.
As a school, it is important to give our teachers the opportunity to perform and to refine their performance skills. Our teachers have prepared a lovely collection of music to perform with pieces by John Carisi, John Field, Alexie Stanchinsky, Michael Nyman, Frédéric Chopin and even a new work by a budding composer!
Why should you play?
Despite the initial nerves, it is a great feeling to play and share your music with everyone else
It is a great motivator to get your music to a good level
Do you stumble when you play your piece to someone else? Playing in front of others is an essential activity to improve this
Other people will enjoy your performances
It inspires others to give it a go
To gain experience playing in another room and on another piano
The concert will take place at Brighton College. It is a beautiful venue and they have a lovely grand piano.
