Also, students have the opportunity each February to participate in the Florida Federation of Music Clubs Festival. Students play two memorized songs for a judge and scored and given valuable feedback on their progress. The highest rating is Superior.

Many of our students began lessons at a very young age and have continued to become accomplished musicians. This is a result of learning from a delightful course called Piano Party. Although children don’t understand note reading at this young age, they love shapes and colors. So this series is beautifully age-appropriate introducing music, notes, and rhythms.
We offer beginner to intermediate flute lessons learning note reading, rhythms, and fingerings. The series includes a cd providing a way for the student to play along.
Students become well-rounded players because they have the opportunity to play in a variety of events.
Students can participate in these events in addition to playing solos.

- Trio: Three students on one piano- six hands playing at once!
