THE SUZUKI METHOD
One of the wonderful benefits of being part of a music school is the many performance opportunities offered to our students. All Academie private students are invited to perform on our solo recitals scheduled throughout the year. The student’s private teacher will determine the readiness of the student to perform. All students are expected to perform polished pieces and pay for their own accompanist when appropriate. The teacher will be responsible for communicating with the parent, preparing the student, including instruction in proper concert etiquette, signing up the student for the recital, and facilitating the hire and rehearsal with an accompanist. Two recitals will be offered each time: the “informal” for students who are new to the experience and/or prefer to use their music and the “formal” which will be performed by memory. Students are expected to attend the entire performance as a courtesy to all performers.
