Performance Events

We have a performance event suited to every aged student, at every ability level. Our performance opportunities level up as our students gain more expertise, leading students gently from intimate small settings to eventual larger, more formal settings. This carefully-tiered structure nurtures all ages, beginners through advanced levels.  Students receive an invitation newsletter / email from their Teachers and Directors for the Performance Event that gives each student the best experience. We specialize in nurturing settings. This is always our first priority. Welcome to our Performance Events!

Workshops are unique to Myriad. Our teachers are always amazed at the positive impacts Workshops have on our private music lesson students. All of our performers, at all levels, gain confidence, perspective, and refinement by participating in this practical, nurturing and reflective format. Read more below, regarding what our students learn during Workshop Week.

Workshops are held twice a year, once in January and once in May. This schedule includes all Private Lesson Students, except adult students. Private lesson students attend their workshops, in place of their regularly scheduled lessons. Each student attends one class. Classes are an hour in length. Class size is limited to 13 students. 1 class per student.

To choose a Workshop time, refer to your Workshop Week Newsletters & Emails from Myriad. Follow the instructions to access your Sign Up Genius Invites from Myriad.

Benefits: What students learn during Workshop Week

The art of performance can pose a challenge for young musicians. The more we practice playing in front of others the easier it becomes. In Workshop classes, students of various levels gain confidence performing for each other in an intimate setting with peers and several teachers. We focus on techniques to ease anxiety, introduce relaxation methods, refine musicality and performance poise. Students listen constructively to each other and have an opportunity to share feedback about musical concepts. We learn how to actively listen to live music and reinforce vocabulary to talk about performance practices. Most importantly, our students see others facing the same challenges they experience, and they don’t feel alone in their lesson studies. This is a positive week in a safe environment, trying out performance material. Students with accompaniments have time to work with their accompanists. All students need goals like Workshops to improve.

All students must attend Workshops to be eligible for their designated Performance Events.
